LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SpendEdge, a leading provider of procurement market intelligence solutions, has announced the completion of their latest article on the critical supplier negotiation strategies for successful procurement.
It has become imperative for companies to develop successful supplier negotiation strategies to thrive in the market. The balance of power has shifted towards suppliers and buyers have gotten into a weaker position, making it difficult for them to rely on hard negotiations. Companies need to assess whether they could help the supplier realize value or change the way they buy. Acquiring a new supplier or creating one could also be a feasible option for some organizations.
At SpendEdge, we understand that companies need to develop effective strategies to realize value from suppliers. Therefore, we have highlighted the key supplier negotiation strategies for successful procurement.
Successful Supplier Negotiation Strategies
Turn a commercial transaction into a strategic partnership
Redefining relationships with suppliers has become imperative for companies to rebalance the power equation. They need to focus on building a strategic partnership with suppliers by offering them market opportunities for price concessions. Reducing price risks for suppliers could also help organizations demand some concessions.

Change your pattern of demand
Changing the pattern of buying is one of the key supplier negotiation strategies that companies could adopt to improve procurement. However, they need to analyze the impact of this strategy on the entire organization. If creating large purchasing bundles within product categories is not possible, companies should alter demand or switch to a low-cost product.

Create a completely new supply source
Although creating a new supply source appears to be a risky proposition, it can transform the prospects. Companies could either associate with suppliers from the adjacent market to gain commodities at lower prices or invest in requisite assets to reduce the dependency on suppliers. They can also venture with a company that has required assets and capabilities to shift demand away from powerful suppliers.
