External factors, which include high volatility, unpredictable market trends and environmental diversity, increase uncertainty in the global business environment and collectively impacts on an organisation’s product or service supply certainty. In order to deal with unexpected market demands, companies are encouraged to develop flexible relationships with multiple channel partners which helps to reduce dependence on vendors and increase buyer insight. For cost effective and consistent supply of products and services – coordination, detailed analysis, and a unified approach is required. For this reason, Genii Advisory believes automated performance monitoring information metrics tracking software is invaluable for maintaining sufficient leverage over suppliers to collect and classify data on suppliers and provide records and documentation in real time. Additionally, in the era of social media, supplier management must go beyond a spreadsheet and follow information wherever it surfaces.
