      Supplier Warranty

      Unified Supplier Warranty Portal for Manufacturers Improves Communication and Collaboration with Suppliers

      Product Manufacturers (OEMs) are increasingly expecting the suppliers to take more responsibility for parts design and warranty cost-sharing. OEMs and suppliers need to collaborate more effectively to improve product quality, reduce warranty costs, and prevent costly recalls.

       

      The unified, efficient, and timely flow of warranty information

      Responsibility for supplier warranty management is spread across Warranty, Quality, and Supplier Management departments within an OEM organization; the department and data silos create barriers to the flow of warranty information and collaboration with a supplier in solving the problems.

      The efficient and timely flow of warranty information across all Warranty Chain stakeholders, including Dealers, OEMs, and Suppliers, is critical to access the data necessary to detect and correct emerging quality issues.

      Unified Supplier Warranty Portal can bridge the information gaps by instantly generating and sharing supplier claims from dealers' incoming warranty claims and utilizing all the data to create early warnings for quality departments of both OEMs and suppliers.
