We understand that sourcing plays an important part in the production life cycle of your product. Our sourcing team is concerned with finding the best supplier for goods and services regarding your product.
Strategic sourcing is one key area that will help to grow faster and minimize the risks during production. It will also help to cut down on cost, discover wastage, get better prices from suppliers, and build a more resilient supply strategy.
Through our sourcing program, we are in charge of vetting, selecting, and managing suppliers who can provide the inputs for the production to run continuously. Sourcing is tasked with carrying out research, creating and executing strategy, defining quality and quantity metrics, and choosing suppliers that meet these criteria.
We have built an extensive supply chain for electronic components with the main vendors (overseas and China Mainland) in order to guarantee availability and quality for your product.
We firmly believe that:
Strong supplier relationships help ensure consistent quality and availability.
Vendor contracts and purchase orders spell out terms and eliminate potential misunderstandings.
Businesses with the most advanced collaboration with suppliers outperform peers by a twofold margin.
Identify the needs: Identify the requirements and needs of the project for components and parts as well.
Research the market: Evaluate the current market, availability, and lead times, in order to minimize risks and increase efficiency. At this point, our team will also search for potential replacements issuing a note to the client for approval.
Vet suppliers: as a part of our risk management, vendor vetting allows us to avoid external supply chain threats. By selecting suppliers that are compliant with standards and regulations, we can then establish partnerships that promote operational efficiency. We review the process including requirements for a Code of Conduct, as well as ISO 9001 and ISO 14000. Additional certifications may be required depending on the service and material provided.
Negotiate: here is where our company starts negotiating different payment terms in order to provide the best and most flexible terms to our clients.
Select suppliers: Our supplier partnerships are based on reliability, trust, confidence, and competence, working with the largest distributors of electronic components in the world, in combination with smaller suppliers, to ensure a high level of service.
Evaluate supplier performance: Suppliers are constantly under evaluation and performance check, recurring audits to assess supplier performance.
