The key to building the success of your own brand is to introduce new and improved products. Engaged suppliers bring momentum and efficiency to your product development process, increasing the return on investment from specification and artwork management systems.
supplierENGAGE™ gives you the tools to better manage the diverse people and processes involved in bringing new products to market – whether you’re at the ideas stage, selecting a supplier, product testing or dealing with the finishing touches such as amendments to artwork.
With powerful communication and visual management functionality, you can target the right people with clear messages and drive action at each stage within your New Product Development (NPD) process. Stage-Gate dashboards complement your communications and enable you and your partners to check on the progress of your new products. Decision making is straightforward, with a clear understanding of who must take action.
Using the supplierENGAGE™ Knowledgebase, you can also provide clear documentation (such as brand guidelines and policy documents), training and support at every stage of the process. Your suppliers will always know what they need to do, and be empowered and motivated to do it right first time.
