Share your buying briefs and tech packs with your vendor base through Liberty PLM. Collaborate with your sourcing office, direct FOB or local vendors – our flexible solution can track all routes to market. You can provide as little or as much detail as you need to get accurate pricing back from your vendors. Collect your vendors and factories profiles, and prompt your vendors to accept your trading terms through our Vendor Set Up and On-Boarding module. Ensure your vendors’ factories have adequate ethical and technical audit capability to meet your increasingly stringent standards. For those SKUs that are not designed in-house, or those SKUs you discover on your trips, prompt your vendors to fill out all the required details and pricing on your behalf.
Your vendors and sourcing office can use our Quote Management module to input quotes on-line or through Excel template upload. Either way our solution provides the control you need to collect all necessary data in a consistent way. Estimate landed cost is added at point of quote capture removing clunky spreadsheets and unnecessary data administration. Our quote comparison functionality then allows you to analyse all aspects of the vendors offering – pricing, factory and ethical audit compliance, technical capability, overall performance for existing vendors – before you make your initial selections.
