    No organisation wants complaints, but the least you can do if you receive them is handle them in a prompt, professional manner.

    Supplier Complaints

    Supplier performance is usually critical to your performance. Of course, suppliers have problems from time to time. If these can be captured and recorded accurately then they can be used as a basis for feedback and review or, if it comes to it, claims. The more data available regarding the nature and frequency of problems, the greater the chance you can improve them and reduce the effects that supplier's non-conformance may have on you.
