Vendor Planning

with Maple Street's Vendor Advantage System™

Maple Street’s Vendor Advantage System™ is about setting shared goals with your vendors, measuring the results, and working with vendors to constantly improve. We align contracts and use time and competitive pressure effectively to maximize your negotiation power so vendors know they have to deliver results.

Shared Goals Power Performance

Vendors talk about partnering with you, when nothing could be further from the truth. Partnering is working together to share the results and risk, but vendors are often more interested in making a sale. Once the sale is done and the system installed, you’re on your own.

Maple Street’s VAS® moves vendor planning to the tactical level. With our system, you’ll know which vendors to renew and which not to. You’ll be able to time vendor changes to maximize negotiation power, manage resources, and have the power to measure success.
