It was not long ago when a major smartphone brand had to recall a line of their phones due to the case of their smartphone batteries exploding. It was not the first, nor will be the last. Many brands have had to suffer similar catastrophes of having to undergo total recall due to a single malfunctioning component or so. These catastrophic situations, often the result of the absence of a effective Supplier Management Software in place, can result in the brand name having to suffer devastating blows. The public does not easily forget and forgive such major scale issues quickly. Although major brand names find ways back up, this can be a devastating blow for mediocre brands.
So, what is it that went wrong with a majority of these incidents leading to product recalls? One primary reason was the lack of diversifying the supply chain. In many of those cases, the products or components were obtained from a single supplier. That is not an advisable action. If anything goes wrong with the supplied component or part, it will affect the whole line of products. And in such situations, total recall is often the only available course of action. That will undoubtedly lead to having to suffer the many repercussions of it.
But by diversifying the supply chain, you can avoid this rookie mistake. It is advisable to keep several suppliers for a single part or component. That way, the risk of an adverse event can be pooled out. These suppliers must all be evaluated for above or on par performance with respect to quality standards. By letting them see their own evaluations, you can motivate your suppliers to perform better if they are below par or to keep up with the good work if their performance is satisfactory.
While all these seem to be extremely beneficial options for reassessing your supply chain, it may not be easy without the right tools. Managing several hundred suppliers efficiently obviously requires a software tool that can minimize the hassle. That is where many businesses come to a standstill and delay the implementation of productive actions. But that will never be the answer if you are looking to escalate to success.
The answer lies in an effective Supplier Management Software. A solution that will bridge the gap that many companies have between themselves and their suppliers, an answer to building up a good rapport. An effective Supplier Management Software is the key that transcends the boundaries that limit companies from assessing their suppliers’ performance accurately.
