You think you have it tough???  Imagine having to deal with a Supply base consisting of 310,000+ members, 200+ Fortune 1000 companies and $13B of spend across 35+ industries as Stakeholders, not just internal business units.  Try navigating through that during trying times like this.  In this session, we’ll hear from an Expert from OMNIA Partners who will share some of their issues and challenges as they work through the COVID-19 crisis with their Suppliers.  Here is a sneak peek:

  • Dealing with PPE / other critical supplies: 
    • Who is essential business?
    • Customer priorities Hospitals / first responders
      • Essential businesses
      • Current customers

  • Social distancing: suppliers providing services, while not being onsite (VMI, site visits, etc.)
  • Communication with customers
  • Layoffs / redeployment of workforce

  • How are you meeting those challenges?
  • Is this event providing you with some opportunities with your suppliers and vice versa?
