Ask Mary: Creating a Supplier Compliance Program (Part 2 of 3)

Posted by Daniel Ford on Tue, Sep 20, 2011

As promised in part 1 of this 3-part series, below is a list of key points that will provide you with a solid foundation for establishing a compliance program.
 
Survey your Vendors  
The survey should be very simple and the goal is to determine if your vendors are already EDI capable. The survey should contain no more than 10 questions.

Kim Zablocky: suppliers, you can improve your business processes!

Posted by Daniel Ford on Mon, Aug 15, 2011

As I'm sitting here trying to grow a business, watching CNBC and learning that someone on Wall St. decided the market needed to lose over 600 points before the day even started, it just goes to show that the relationship between retailers and their key suppliers isn't all that's dysfunctional.

Exception-based receiving software has been around for awhile, but now every retail software business is in the fray of coming up with their own versions. Exceptions like Shipped Not Ordered & Substitutions, Shortages, and Early-Late Arrival are all monitored and when appropriate, a deduction is assessed. This system puts pressure on suppliers to better manage their order fulfillment processes.
