This week's survey

(These survey questions are sent in by our readers. Please spend a minute to give your answer to this week's survey as one or possibly more of your industry peers thinks this question is important and wishes to see your point of view as well as others in the industry.)

Last week's survey 

Do you appreciate that suppliers can be partners in your business success and not necessarily the enemy?

  • Yes, you should always try to make your preferred supplier your partner in your business. Suppliers aren't just there for you to demand and screw for the best price, they are there to educate and help you with not only supply but with technical advice and support. At Sign*A*Rama, I developed good relationships with all our major and preferred suppliers so that we could get technical advice, practical training, latest overseas trends and a good and fair group pricing deal. Treat your supplier with the same amount of respect that you and your team would like to receive. Make your preferred supplier your friend and always pay your bills on time and you will be amazed at how a good supplier will treat your business.
    (Brian Pretorius - Praetorian BMC)
  • No, They are as it states, a supplier. They are their own identity with their own business plan, strategy and agenda. They are not your business partner as such. Did they invest their money or put a cash injection in your Business? I think not. They are the same as all of us, in business to make money.
    However they can be a very important segment of your business profitability and success so it is essential for every business owner to look at their "strategic Alliances" they form with their suppliers and the quality of the "Business Relationship" you form. And it works both ways, without us they don't exist, with out them it is difficult for us to exist.
  • Absolutely depends on your relationship with the supplier. Most businesses are run a relationship basis, if the relationship is positive, that's great. If not then a partnership with your supplier is going to be a liablity. Since your relationship is usually with the rep and considering that they move around quite a bit and assuming the rep has given you great advice, service and pricing, etc, then you may well stick with whatever company he/she moves to.
  • I have not yet encountered a supplier who has partnering in mind, it is always how they make sure there slice of the pie is to grow.
  • As a perhaps unknown insight from someone who has been on the supply side of our industry for 30 odd years and running my own business for over 10. Those clients who appreciate what we do and and work through issues together if they arise end up getting the best service and the best pricing and most priority when there are stock shortages and are not chased as hard for payments. Those that use suppliers as a bank, beleive they need to play "hard ball" with suppliers and constantly focus on price and shop quotes around end up losing out significantly in the long run. I guess its just human nature more than any business formula.... but its a fact.
  • I do not see my suppliers as the enemy, I do see them as part of the business, another arm. If they are a good supplier they are armed with valuble information and not just the sell. Although we all like discounts I do not screw the suppliers down, like any of us they also need to make money and in quite a few cases I rely on their input, especially Russell from Artmart.
  • Of course, suppliers are one of the key stakeholders in any business.
  • Not really, they are there to make sure their business interests come first..
  • Partners in my business - no. Perhaps the word partners is not right, strategic ally would be better and if that is the case, they can be an asset or a libaility, depends on the supplier or the rep.

 Weekly Smile:  


Two boys in Brisbane are playing football in the park when one of the boys is attacked by a savage Rottweiler. 
Thinking quickly, the other boy rips a board off the nearby fence, wedges it in the dog's collar and twists, breaking the dog's neck. 
A Courier Mail reporter hears about the incident and rushes over to interview the boy. "Young Lions Fan Saves Friend From Vicious Animal," he starts writing in his notebook.  But I'm not a Lions fan," the little hero replies.  "Sorry, since we are in Brisbane , I just assumed you were," says the reporter, and he starts again. "Broncos Fan Rescues Friend from Horrific Attack!" he jots in his notebook. "I'm not a Broncos fan either," the boy responds. The reporter starts again: "Maroons Supporter Risks Life In Heroic Rescue" "I'm not a Maroons fan either," the boy responds.   "I assumed everyone in Brisbane was either for the Lions, Broncos or the Maroons. What team do you cheer for?" the reporter asks.  "We are both from Sydney and I'm a Blues fan," the boy says. The reporter starts a new sheet in his notebook and writes:  "Little Redneck Cockroach  vandalises Fence And Kills Beloved Family Pet."
