If you are going to choose a supplier suitable for your business, you need to clearly understand what he should be able to do. For example, the supplier should be as sociable as possible, be able to call hundreds of organizations for a long time. Of course, the ability to use a PC should be at least at the level of a “confident user”. Moreover, these should not be empty words in the resume, since almost all suppliers today have their catalogs only on the Internet, where they need not only to be found, but also to correctly use the data found.
The required skills should also include the ability to work with email programs and office suites, since suppliers must not only be able to correspond with suppliers via e-mail, but also be able to structure the results of their work. Of course, a person who applies for the position of a supplier must be a good psychologist, since negotiation skills are a whole science that cannot be mastered in a couple of days. Moreover, there is a lot of such materials on the net.
In addition, such an employee, at least at a minimum level, must understand economic processes. This is the only way to correctly choose suppliers in a variety of situations, being able to use the current market situation to the benefit of your company. In addition, the supplier must quickly delve into the specifics of the production with which he will work: after all, the success of his activities depends on it. He must also know all the regulatory documents that regulate his activities at the legislative level. He must realize not only his rights, but also all the responsibility that falls on his shoulders. A supplier is almost half the success of your production, so approach his choice responsibly!
