IS YOUR company one of the FPAL suppliers with a “data flag” attached to its registration? If so, you will be aware that this shows purchasers viewing your record that the information stored has not been updated for 18 months or more.
All FPAL purchasers are fully aware of the meaning of a data flag on a supplier record and this could potentially limit your chances of appearing on bid lists.
FPAL wants you to receive as much benefit from your registration as possible and is there to help all suppliers, including those with out-of-date records.
With out-of-date information, your company is receiving little or no benefit from your registration, so please give us a call to discuss the quickest way to update your record.
To all suppliers, here are a few reminders for areas to update in your record every three to six months:
Are your health and safety statistics showing the last three years and year to date?
Quality/environment/health and safety – are your certification expiry dates still valid?
Does your record contain your latest three years’ financial information?
Do your registered products/services reflect your current product portfolio?
Have you included all the relevant “keywords” needed to describe your products/services?
Most importantly, are your contact details up to date on your registration? Make it as easy as possible for your customers to contact the right person in your organisation.
If you feel that you need a refresher course on how to update your FPAL registration, contact the FPAL team to register for a supplier awareness workshop. Dates are available on the FPAL website/events page.
For any of the above, contact FPAL customer support on +44 (0) 1224 337 533, or see www.fpal.com
