The purcha­sing success and the compe­ti­tive situa­tion of compa­nies rise and fall with the quality of the suppliers. This makes it all the more important to syste­ma­ti­cally manage rela­ti­onships with suppliers, i.e. to bind and develop the “right” suppliers.

The part­ners of the IFE would like to support you in driving supplier deve­lo­p­ment in your company in order to reco­gnize and profi­tably use the perfor­mance and deve­lo­p­ment poten­tial of your suppliers.

Our efforts focus on the entire life­cycle of supplier colla­bo­ra­tion: from the defi­ni­tion of a clear objec­tive (e.g. purcha­sing, commo­dity group, project stra­tegy), through the phases of supplier rese­arch (supplier evalua­tion, supplier selec­tion, supplier deve­lo­p­ment), to the escala­tion or phase-out of suppliers.

Toge­ther with refe­rence custo­mers and part­ners, IFE deve­lops tools and methods which serve to adapt supplier coope­ra­tion to the current requi­re­ments of the market on both a factual and personal level. The focus here is on an optimal price-quality-time mix at process cost.
