How do you find reliable suppliers/vendors that will give you a good price and get you restocked at the right times? First, you have to prioritize between a few key factors:
- Turnaround time
- Customer service
- Local service
- Big volume discounts
- In-house development
No vendor is going to be able to provide every single one of those things, so you’ll have to decide what you can live without in order to get the benefits you need the most.
James Shores supplies information on all of this and much more in this week’s Whiteboard Wednesday, so check it out above!
