Supplier Management by Catalyst

To keep up your competitiveness, you need quality, innovative capacity and supply reliability which you can only reach in cooperation with your suppliers as value-creating partners. Often, however, 50 to 70 percent of the value creation are contracted out to suppliers. This means that a performing supplier management is a key element for the company’s economic success and one of the key tasks of strategic purchasing.

With the process of supplier management, the Purchasing department can manage the complete relationship with suppliers in a systematic and strategic way. The aim is to form a proactive link between the suppliers and the management.

We develop an analysis that has a professional approach, along with the evaluation and classification of suppliers, strategy development, and a strong foundation of supplier relationship management.
