Supplier Management Software
In today’s competitive marketplace, outsourcing has become an effective way to keep pace with rapidly advancing technologies and increasing pressure to trim time-to-market. But it also presents significant regulatory challenges, as original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) must monitor and control supplier performance in order to maintain compliance and ensure product quality.
