Vendor Management Program
Process Improvement. Increased customer service. Centralized billing. Better access to a broad supplier group.
There are many benefits to our customers when they choose Vendor Management Services (VMS). We want to help you achieve all of these goals. However, moving to a managed vendor process is a cultural shift. Your managers transfer relationships and relationship management to S3. Then processes are put in place to ensure compliance and service level agreements. If need be, software is added to the mix to automate current manual processes.
The S3 model for implementing a VMS program is based on collaboration with our customers. Our program can be implemented within 45 days of contract award. We can jump in to handle a rapid resource deployment if necessary and also jump in for a resource ramp-down. Our process is proven and our team capable. Our ability to deliver is based on the customer and the customer's team willingness to work toward a common goal of Vendor Management. If your environment is ready, we are ready.
As an IT services leader for more than ten years, S3 has made it our core philosophy to offer our customers services that meet their business needs and build relationships. We believe that our amazing record of success in implementing VMS programs is due to our fair and balanced approach to engaging, managing and retaining our strategic, niche supplier partners. S3 manages its supplier partners as well as its own consultants. Our Strategic Supplier Partners are drawn from our customers' local areas and nationally, representing a successful mix of skill specialists and supplier diversity.
Strategic Staffing Solutions is keenly aware of how valuable a well-run, outcome-based Diversity program is to the success of our customers and of each Diversity firm with whom S3 partners. As a diverse supplier ourselves, we take the sourcing and utilization of Diverse suppliers very seriously. S3's M/WBE second-tier management process has consistently met or exceeded M/WBE goals across multiple programs and customers.
