Supplier Funded Programs
NTS Unitek’s supplier funded programs transfer the cost and responsibility of quality assurance to your suppliers. Participating suppliers work with us to achieve self-release status based on your requirements, and they are rewarded for producing products of a consistent quality. Our team oversees everything, coordinating activities with each supplier and performing all records management and reporting.
- Supplier funded services can include any of our core program offerings. Benefits of participation include:
- A reduction in non-value-added costs and administrative responsibilities
- Better coordination between supplier and stakeholder objectives
- Clearer documentation of technical requirements
- Improved overall quality of individual parts and components
More than 1,000 NTS Unitek customers participate in supplier funded programs. Regardless of the extent and complexity of your supply chain, we can develop a plan that saves you money, improves accountability and streamlines the quality management process.
NTS Unitek has distinguished itself among source inspection companies based on our experience, our in-house resources and our proven approach to quality management. Our technical specialists have an average of 20 years’ experience, while our support staff includes seasoned engineers and subject matter experts. Drawing from this global pool of talent, we can develop solutions that manage risk and optimize product quality.
The key to our ability to serve clients is our “Command Center” approach. Clients work exclusively with a dedicated project manager, who is their principal point of contact for any questions or issues related to source inspection or other quality management issues. With this approach, we can share resources between business units, standardize program activities and deliver more value for your money.
A suite of web-based tools complements the Command Center system and gives clients access to real-time support and data collection. Through these and other products, our goal is to make information accessible and provide complete transparency over what we do and the results we achieve.
