Vendor Relationships

Posted by Mark Salinas on July 2, 2008

Solid vendor relationships are essential in maintaining a successful organization.

1. Get to know your suppliers. Use new technology for communication, but don’t forget the personal touch of a phone conversation.

2. Consider your vendors as a part of your team and treat them as such.

3. Make sure they understand your needs and expectations.

4. Show appreciation for good service or for a new product that’s just right for you.

5. Pay on time. If you can’t, let your vendors know right away and work out a payment plan. That’s when knowing them personally will be invaluable.
