Vendor reduction or consolidation is one of those popular phrases which might be slightly baffling to an individual, but more commonly known and practised by a larger-scale purchaser. It describes a strategy of product procurement that involves reducing the number of your current vendors and consolidating your purchasing power. When you think of vendor reduction, therefore, you are simply thinking of cutting down your suppliers to a select few you can trust to provide the best value and reliability.
Benefits of Vendor Reduction
If you are a business buying parts for various purposes, your spending will usually be spread across a selection of different specialist vendors. You may shop around for the best prices, service and quality, but at the end of the day you can't buy a bread roll from a greengrocer or an apple from a baker. That has always been the appeal of the supermarket, which brings together a disparate collection of goods so that you can focus your spending in one place. It saves the time you would otherwise take in traipsing from shop to shop, it saves possible costs in petrol, and it enables the goods to be supplied more cheaply because they're purchased in bulk.
