Our Supplier Management team:
Provide recommendations on your optimum supplier base
Demonstrate how much more you could save on third party supplier costs
Minimise the risks associated with changing suppliers
Many organisations find themselves purchasing training from an ever-increasing number of suppliers. Too many suppliers can often lead to problems, including:
Spend is spread across many suppliers. This limits your ability to obtain the best discounts
An inability to manage so many supplier relationships properly. You may not notice service levels and quality slip, until a major problem occurs. The administration of relationships distracts procurement and HR from higher value tasks
Training lacks consistency
Knowledgepool’s Supplier Management team can audit your training spend and recommend ways to reduce the size of your supplier list and lower the cost of your learning, whilst still maintaining quality.
We buy over £100m worth of training services from over 7,000 suppliers every year. Our Supplier Management team are constantly negotiating with training suppliers across all subject areas to get the best quality for the best price.
Choosing new suppliers can be a time-consuming and risky process. Our supplier management function reduces both the time and the risk, because we’ll only recommend suppliers that have passed our quality checks and have a proven track record with us.
