Wht is Canopy CONTROL?

What is Supplier Lifecycle Management (SLM)?

Supplier Lifecycle Management (SLM) is a comprehensive approach to managing a supplier's engagement with an organisation from selection to end-of-life. It covers the entire journey, including onboarding, performance assessment, risk management, compliance, and offboarding. SLM ensures suppliers meet the organisation’s standards throughout their partnership, involving continuous monitoring and evaluation to optimise performance, reduce risks, and enhance supply chain efficiency. By systematically managing each phase of the supplier relationship, organisations achieve better collaboration, innovation, and cost-effectiveness.
