CERTIFIED SUPPLIER PROGRAM

A subset of INWK suppliers are enrolled in our Certified Supplier Program. Reserved for suppliers who consistently demonstrate excellence in quality, productivity, and delivery performance, this rigorous program mitigates risk for clients.

 

Certified suppliers are required to undergo a qualitative and quantitative application process, signing working agreements, and sharing financial and reference information. Combined with our scale and supplier diversity, this governing program ensures clients receive best-in-class service regardless of project size or service levels. 

OPTIMIZED 

SUPPLIER SELECTION

The development of strategic supplier partnerships is key to successfully engineering marketing for our clients. Enabled by our proprietary Supplier Selector tool, INWK teams are able to conduct a robust attribute-driven search to identify suppliers that meet specific needs. From geography and certifications (minority, environmental, procedural) to job count and lines of business (over 50 categories), our purposefully built supplier panels not only increase the competitive tension necessary to drive cost efficiencies, but also ensure best-in-class execution of our clients’ marketing programs.
