Doing business with suppliers in other countries can open up
possibilities -- and create challenges.
Managing vendors and orders can be a daunting task when you factor
in varying languages, cultures, time zones and distance. Our Supplier
Management service can provide you the critical components to
enable successful international commerce. Acting as your eyes
and ears around the world, we bridge time zones, cultures, distance
and languages to help create a seamless supply chain. We leverage
our international infrastructure, systems and experience on your
behalf to proactively manage your overseas suppliers and logistics.
Now you can have the vital order, item and vendor fulfillment
information you need -- before your order is scheduled to ship.
By obtaining information earlier in the fulfillment process, you'll
gain more control and lower your costs. Using standard operating
procedures, your purchase orders, and our state-of-the-art operating
system, we monitor critical data and events, and communicate any
deviations from plan. Information is available to you online, so you can access data when you need it.
Our standard services include:
