Recently we give advices of suppliers on our LinkedIn but now we gathered all the tips and write it here in our blog
First, IF YOU LOOK TO WIN ALL THE TIME, EVENTUALLY YOU´RE GOING TO LOSE.
Be objective, fair and equitable with your suppliers. The negotiation consists of many aspects, give up on some of them so that both you and your supplier feel like the ball is in your side of the field.
When you are working with a new supplier is always convenient to have a back up plan. At Mexico Sourcing Group we have work for more than 18 years with many different suppliers; that experience allowed us to create a very productive suppliers´ data base, that way we are able to provide a back up supplier in case it is needed. A good strategist has always a plan B.
DO YOU KNOW THE PROCESS REQUIRED TO MAKE YOUR PRODUCT?
When we take a project under our wings, we start by analyzing, studying and examining all the processes behind the finished product.
We set up the background to help our suppliers reach the highest quality and to accomplish the client requirements.
Looking to sourcing in Mexico?
Here is something to consider:
When you look for sourcing in Mexico, don´t let the price be the main factor to select your suppliers. Some of the most competitive suppliers we have helped to develop have been able to provide better lead times, better payment terms, and higher quality conditions in their processes.
Remember: you are not looking for just a supplier, you are looking for a strategic partner.
