A vast majority of businesses contract suppliers to provide goods and services to supplement their internal resources. The type of goods and services vary widely, and for a medical company it may include purchasing standard components, design and manufacture of custom components, regulatory advice and submissions, and clinical study protocols and execution. Using suppliers is an excellent way to get access to skills, technology and other resources that aren’t available internally.

However, using suppliers may also create wasted time and effort on the part of the company and the supplier.

After working with both suppliers and being a supplier, Maren Nelson has learned some key factors to consider at the beginning of a relationship that can help achieve the desired result. Rushing to start a project often means these key steps get overlooked or set aside for later.

In this webinar, Maren covers:

  • When to consider using suppliers
  • Key differences between standard / OTS and custom part suppliers
  • Tools and methods for managing suppliers
  • When and how to transition between suppliers and internal resources

If you are considering using suppliers or are already using them—for services or for goods—you won't want to miss Maren’s presentation on supplier relationship best practices.
