Any successful business likely has some kind of relationship with at least a few vendors as it likely depends on their services and available technology and supplies. Having said that, it can be truly challenging to juggle all these providers. How is it that this challenge can be overcome?
We have a way that makes this entire process far simpler for you to manage. Let’s take a few moments to examine what makes this whole process as challenging as it is.
Hypothetically speaking, let’s say that you’ve come up with a great way that a new bit of technology could seriously benefit your operations. That’s a great start—next, it will require you to figure out what you need and ask a vendor what they have to offer you to that effect. Unfortunately, with the supply chain issues being what they are right now, there’s a good chance that a third party may have to be brought in. Your order is placed and an estimated delivery time is given.
Once your order is fulfilled, it's time to take your new hardware and install your software… which you discover aren’t compatible with one another. You also discover that the software isn’t all that compatible with your infrastructure… but only after spending far more time than you should trying to make it work, at the expense of your other responsibilities.
This is the crux of the issue with vendor management: it takes a lot of your valuable time—particularly when multiple vendors are involved and all need to be contacted for even the simplest of answers. Remember, this is all going on in the background while your business is limping along without the tools it needs.
