Let’s Talk

Business activity in the industrial sector is characterized by a relatively volatile marketplace impacted by global economic forces and longer term trends. This environment along with the scale and costs involved in many industrial projects results in a lengthy and complex quotation management process. This dynamic model translates from the OEMs to the rest of the supply chain, making an integrated system and process key to a company’s success.

Whether your company is operating as an OEM or material Supplier, the requirements to respond to a quote in this industry, and what you ask for from your suppliers continues to expand in form and content.

  • Increase win rates by proactively gathering current information both internally and externally

Your supply chain management processes are business-critical assets. A top trend in aerospace and defense revolves around developing a  mutually beneficial relationship with suppliers.

A phenomenal article by Strategy& makes the point that “even seemingly small changes can lead to significantly improved outcomes.” Furthermore, the article draws attention to the fact that “when Aerospace manufacturers reassess and improve their interface with customers and suppliers, focus on eliminating inefficiencies and begin to alter what and how they procure, it’s not unusual to see cost reductions of as much as 30 percent.”

For Aerospace Manufacturers and Distributors, QSTRAT provides the following advantages:

  •  Manage Supplier performance in quoting and delivery to ensure you are rewarding your partners
  • Implement stringent Supplier onboarding processes to ensure your Suppliers get started on the right footing
  • Improve your Sourcing process with our unique approach to managing Supplier RFQs and Supplier quote comparison
