Supplier Scorecard Best Practices for Organizations

Set up a process to dissociate with underperforming suppliers
Since the prime objective of creating the supplier scorecard is to improve supplier performance, companies must create a specific business process to communicate with underperforming suppliers. They should establish a process to recognize and reward suppliers for their performance while disengaging with underperforming suppliers.
Dissociating with underperforming suppliers is vital to ensure the sustainability of any organization. Request a free demo from our experts to access SpendEdge’s insights.
Keep communication lines with suppliers open
Once the quality and performance has been determined, companies need to share scorecard results with suppliers. They must keep the communication line open right from initial service level agreements (SLAs) to contract re-negotiations. This will facilitate both the parties to improve and gain better business outcomes.
