Bid on a Buyer-Seller Relationship
When evaluating bids from suppliers, most buyers don’t limit a supplier analysis to quantity, quality, and cost. Buyers search for suppliers that mesh with the company mission, market, branding, competitive advantage, risk, opportunity, and the potential of a long-term relationship. With digital procurement and artificial intelligence driving change within industries, buyers will be further defining and refine supply chain procedures and relationships.
Suppliers should have the same dedication when seeking outbid opportunities from buyers. Suppliers need to evaluate quantity, quality, price, strategic complements, and adaptability to industry changes. With dual accountability from buyers and sellers, long-term relationships between buyers and suppliers can have a mutually beneficial financial impact on business performance.
