Supplier Management: Supplier Evaluation & 360° Supplier Surveys
Recognising, using and optimising added value potential within supplier relations, …
… that is why we regularly and methodically measure the status of your supplier relations.

Supplier evaluation is an important instrument in order for your company to be more successful. It can show the results and their causes from the operative actions taken as well as the compatibility of your strategic targets with those of your suppliers. These are indispensable for the operative, everyday business of many successful enterprises and are the topic of regular supplier meetings a lot of the time.

We have summarised the individual contents of a comprehensive supplier evaluation (performance figures, supplier surveys, 360° supplier surveys) into an overall concept for you. Apart from gaining a comprehensive picture of the individual criteria, it is important to allow a direct and unfiltered feedback of all those participating in the process (purchasing/specialist departments/supplier). That is why we survey the process participants in a structured and direct manner and thereby receive answers to the current status of the supplier relations and the added value potential.

We thereby deliver a one-stop coordinated, content-related survey and reporting concept as well as the technical realisation. We give the answers to the central questions in the supplier relations:
How well does the supplier fulfil our requirements regarding his company (actual / target)?(e.g. quality, logistics, innovation, flexibility, price)
How satisfied are we with the supplier? (specialist departments, purchasing etc.)
Do the products and services of the supplier suit (also in the future) our processes and targets?
How does the customer view our business relationship? (cooperation, processes, commitment, innovation)
Where can the optimisation and added value potential be found?

A comprehensive concept made up of content-coordinated, event-controlled surveys and reporting processes that are linked to the technical solution have been integrated within the supplier@monitor, which, amongst others, is being used by the SIEMENS AG.
