Share Article

The Vendor Compliance Federation and Compliance Networks have partnered to present the next event in their popular Nothing But Scorecards series. These interactive scorecarding projects leverage collaboration and a challenging, hands-on effort between retailers and vendors. The conference will promote industry scorecard dialogue, scorecard benefits, and best practices.

Nothing But Scorecards Conference, Teaneck, NJ, June 24-25. Collaborate, Learn, Enable Improvement

The feedback we received from previous conferences was that attendees enjoyed the interactive, hands-on learning experience and were able to return to their companies with ideas and practices that brought real value. This new and improved Nothing but SCORECARDS conference will offer attendees another valuable learning experience.

Progressive, successful retailers and vendors will team up in Teaneck, NJ, on June 24-25, 2008 for two days of scorecarding as they join with peers and other supply chain professionals to improve their organizations' scorecard competency and profitability.

All attendees will take away key learnings about how scorecards contribute to the execution of corporate strategy, earnings per share and overall performance. Attendees will gain valuable knowledge that can be used to see if their companies are ready for this new dimension in retailer supplier management.

The thrust of the overall conference is to promote industry dialogue around scorecards. During this unique program, industry leaders will explore the implications of scorecards and work towards understanding how scorecards will evolve between trading partners. Scorecards represent a fundamental shift in how retailers rate their suppliers. This interactive retailer-vendor event features VCF's proprietary "Build a Scorecard" workshop.

The Build a Scorecard workshop is a challenging, hands-on group learning exercise between retailers, vendors, and supply chain service providers. Participants learn from their colleagues and are trained on best practices for scorecard design and implementation.

According to Mark Jones, Co-Managing Director of the Vendor Compliance Federation, "The feedback we received from previous conferences was that attendees enjoyed the interactive, hands-on learning experience and were able to return to their companies with ideas and practices that brought real value. This new and improved Nothing but SCORECARDS conference will offer attendees another valuable learning experience."

According to Greg Holder, CEO of Compliance Networks, "We are very proud of our partnership with VCF and its members, and are excited about the opportunity to share the value of scorecarding with the retailers and vendors in attendance at the Nothing but SCORECARDS conference. Scorecarding is an organic benefit of Compliance Networks's supply chain solutions, so it makes sense for VCF to partner with Compliance Networks to present the Nothing but SCORECARDS conference series."

In addition to its role as sponsor, Compliance Networks will provide supply chain professionals to facilitate scorecard sessions and present valuable information on the linkage between corporate goals and vendor compliance deduction policies.
