Amazon grew from a garage and we have poured everything we’ve learned into Amazon Business. So you can be sure of the best possible business purchasing experience.
Selecting a supplier, known as sourcing, is the first stage of procurement. For bigger organizations this can be complex and involve RFP processes – draining time and resource.
The next stage is to arrange a contract with your chosen supplier to confirm terms and conditions and prices. Supplier contracts can leave you committed to higher prices should they fall during its terms.
The purchasing process is now properly under way, with the procurement of products from the chosen supplier. Payment is often dealt with by your company’s accounts payable team.
Supplier management is all about ensuring suppliers are acting in line with your contract and that relationships between them and your company are good. This can be time-consuming.
