Businesses have tended to adopt an asset-light business strategy to cope with today's volatile commercial environment. A large number of successful companies have chosen to rely on vendors for essential raw materials supply and production of proprietary products. This transformation has made characterizing dependable vendors and application of Vendor Relationship Management (VRM) an indispensable task.
Initiating Vendor Due Diligence (VDD) is crucial in VRM instigation. We evaluate and validate vendors' performances through on-site investigation in corporate governance, turnaround capacity, ethical practices, physical securities, insurance protection, human resources management and other welfare related issues. Vendors are being scrutinized to uncover hidden potential risks. Clients are provided with references for selection of the most appropriate collaboration models. Adopting the use of VDD is an imperative factor that helps strengthen vendor relationship as well as establishes core influence in corporate development strategy.
