Suppliers aren't just important to the procurement department; they are often a key component of an entire organization's ability to generate value. And the ability to generate value is compromised when information about supplier performance is locked away in disparate systems or in employee's heads. Without a clear picture of the capabilities of incumbent and potential suppliers, organizations can only guess and hope that they are buying from the right sources.
