Procurement professionals can leverage their company’s spend through safety statistics data on their suppliers.
Companies that outsource work tasks to suppliers often devote a lot time and energy trying to decide on which supplier to choose. This typically involves a Request for Proposal (RFP) process but what if that can be sped up through contractor data provided by a prequalification service?
Prequalification is becoming a more common industry standard and CanQualify has a customizable service that’s easy to navigate and quick to process.
Here’s how —
- You set the benchmark requirements of qualification.
- All suppliers get prequalified through the DocuQual process.
- Your procurement department can then quickly see how many contractors within your supply chain perform the same type of services and which ones are the lowest risk.
- This helps narrow down the suppliers you want to work with because if a supplier performs multiple different tasks, or covers multiple different regions, you can most likely negotiate a work-load discount if you offer a volume of projects to that supplier.
Our SafetyQual service can also quickly help you see which suppliers are performing better on safety stats. Procurement can award work to the companies less likely to cause an incident helping to reduce liability costs. Combining that with InsureQual will also help reduce risk because, knowing the supplier is adequately insured, helps reduce the overall potential of direct liability costs should an incident occur.
This provides a better piece of mind and safer work environment.
Have multiple sites?
Hiring clients that have multiple sites can leverage costs with suppliers that cover multiple regions or provide work nationally. Procuring a workload for a single company can help lower spend through larger singular contracts. Not much different from a bulk discount at your local warehouse store.
