Who should attend

This course is aimed for everyone who has some responsibility in selecting suppliers and vendors to the organization for goods and services.

About the course

A vendor is a firm or an individual that has a product or service for sale. Firms depend on a vendor's ability to meet their needs in order to efficiently perform the functions of their business. Therefore, it is important for a firm to choose vendors who are able to meet their requirements. Firms use a process known as vendor analysis to assess the ability of existing or prospective vendors.

Vendor analysis identifies the strengths and weaknesses of each vendor, then compares them to find the vendor that best matches the needs of their company. A vendor analysis is conducted whenever a firm needs to find a new vendor or review the performance of its existing vendors. Let's look at the process of vendor analysis.
