effective supply chain scorecard, the cost of doing business is lowered and
it’s easier to bring more value to your customers. NAED’s Supply Chain
Scorecard is undergoing an evolutionary process, and the goal is to make it
easier to use and more relevant to your business.
Manufacturers’ Council recently re-examined the scorecard that manufacturers
use to evaluate distributors. Their recommendations were presented during the
Manufacturers’ Forum at the 2011 NAED Leadership Summit
in San Diego. Check out the updated Scorecard Manufacturers Use to Evaluate Distributors, Recommended Best Practices, and Recommended Industry Vocabulary. This video also explains the updates.
We want to
hear what you think should be done to improve the scorecard. Please send your
feedback to NAED Member Services by July 25. All comments received by that time will be
reviewed by the task force for incorporation into the final documents.
Electric recently recognized four of their employees for the work they have
done on the scorecard. The “2010 People Who Make a Difference” award was given
to: Teresa Barnhill, channel program and process manager; Lisa Barger,
customer service manager; Dave Konerman, premier program manager; andMelinda Walega, former director of channel operations.
Schneider’s citation said that these individuals, “expanded the areas measured
by the NAED Scorecard to include electronic ordering, EDI usage, and online
usage.” Further, the work “helped 1,746 Schneider Electric distributors improve
performance in these key areas.”
to Schneider’s award winners and thanks to the NAED Manufacturers’ Council for
all of their efforts on this project. For our distributor members, please let us know if you would like to be on a task force that will re-examine the
scorecard that distributors use to evaluate manufacturers this fall.
