Looking to find quality technical suppliers, partners or customers for innovation purposes?
Collaboration and innovation are now viewed as synonymous with each other. Key suppliers support customer innovation and companies are also looking to outsource at least some of their innovation activities to technical partners.
Surims provides a digital platform through which you can find a quality supplier or technical partner. We have designed an industry search engine, filled with terms and keywords, that can be used to find a close match to your technical needs. Once you have selected suitable companies, the search facility is closely integrated with our other applications that support vendor or technical partner qualification. These include online auditing (questionnaires and assessments), document exchange including e-signatures, project and task management. There is lots of opportunity to share information with your supplier or partner with reports, scoring or shared risk management.
Our self help company profile is the foundation stone in building collaboration and innovative vendor relations.The filling out of an online profile by a supplier or development partner is the initial act in an information exchange leading to connection and engagement. Our profiles are easy and intuitive to complete. In this social media age a blend of text and visual is used in each profile. Lots of opportunity is presented for further links to non-profile events such as company websites and social media. The clear goal of a profile is that a potential customer or partner can form an opinion quickly around your suitability for the delivery of a service or product and also to enter into other collaborative and innovative processes.
A recent report by McKinsey consults showed that companies focusing in on developing their suppliers grow twice the rate as competitors who do not develop or collaborate with their suppliers. (see illustration above)
