As pioneers in vendor management since 2011, we’ve been writing the playbook on how organizations need to rethink vendor relationships and approach vendor management in a holistic way.
We’ve helped companies, large and small, across a variety of industries reshape vendor management from a piecemealed, siloed set of activities into a coordinated, strategic business function that creates measurable value.
At Vendor Centric, our goal is to help more organizations like yours transform the way you do business by experiencing the power of strategic vendor management.
Our 5 Success Factors Get You from Vision to Value
Success Factor #1
to Your Design
Vendor management consists of dozens of activities that span across the organization. Our vendor management framework brings structure to what can sometimes feel like complete chaos.
Our framework is based on years of practical, hands-on experience working with clients. We use it in all of the work we do.
Success Factor #2
Aligning Your Operations
There are three operational pillars of vendor management: procurement, contract management, and third-party risk management. The real magic happens when all three operational areas are aligned to create a holistic, comprehensive approach to managing the full lifecycle of the vendor relationship.
As specialists in all three pillars, we can help you improve in one targeted area or bring all three together into a coordinated vendor management program.
Success Factor #3
"Right Sizing" Your Infrastructure
The scale and complexity of vendor management differ from one organization to the next. There is no one-size-fits-all solution; you need a program that is customized to your specific needs.
We help you align the people, processes, and systems that are right-sized to your unique needs and capacity.
Success Factor #4
Breaking Down Your Silos
Another key to our approach is our ability to break down silos in your organization. We bring everyone to the table so you can better coordinate across departments like IT, compliance, finance, risk, and quality, to name a few.
Our collaborative approach improves buy-in and provides for better alignment and transparency across your organization.
