Hear from our Speaker

Why should you Attend?

No one company can reasonably provide for all its possible needs for GLP/GMP compliant supplies. There is also a need to be able to reasonably adjust suppliers due to company needs, supplier issues, budgetary concerns and a whole host of other issues. In order to be able to manage your vendors properly, you need to figure out not only what materials you need from your vendors, but how you need them delivered, what information you need for regulatory reasons and how to manage relationships with your vendors as both your and their abilities change. In this webinar, you will learn how to develop, maintain and implement those relationships with vendors.

In addition, you will learn how to communicate with internal stakeholders about these relationships so you can effectively communicate your organization's needs and help your internal stakeholders deal with the various issues they need to get work accomplished. No vendor program can work without internal buy-in from everyone in the organization, as it is rare that every need can be met by one set of vendors in a standard way. With this webinar, you will be able to learn the key factors needed in managing the needs of vendors.

After this webinar, you will be able to have an agile, efficient and compliant vendor program that will meet the needs of everyone in your organization while being cost-effective as needed. You will also be to deal with the vendors in a clear, defined manner which will allow them to provide the necessary materials you need in order to support company goals.
