Not a while ago, we received great news from one of our customers – Safilo Group.

Safilo is also our longtime business partner, who informed us of our supplier’s estimate for 2018, an estimate which we would like to share with you. The reason why we are sharing this – as you can suspect – we got a very big rating. 🙂
The company has introduced a system of supplier estimation through which they would like to assess the ability of suppliers to comply with their requirements and suppliers willingness to improve the quality of deliveries. The purpose of the estimation is to obtain a detailed picture of each supplier as well as to assure the improvement of co-operation in the future. Supplier’s estimation is prepared at the beginning of each year for the previous year.
In 2018 this estimation was prepared by Purchasing Dept., Technical Dept. and Quality System Dept. based on the following criteria:
- Technical cooperation
- Accuracy of deliveries
- Response and flexibility
- Payment terms
- Supplier’s Quality System
Each criterion is valued with 0, 2 or 4 points with corresponding ponder. When all points are summed, they can classify their suppliers into 4 groups as follows:
– A very capable supplier (from 3,34 to 4,00 points; supervision is not necessary)
– B adequate capable supplier (from 2,67 to 3,33 points; suitable supervision is necessary)
– C transitive capable supplier (from 2,01 to 2,66 points; improvements are necessary)
– D incapable supplier (from 0,00 to 2,00 points; change of supplier is necessary)
For the year 2018 Masaprint was classified the group A supplier, with achieved points 3,50.
We would like to thank Safilo for the good business co-operation, and point out we are looking forward to a future successful co-operation!
