Tempe, AZ — Want to know if reverse auctions help or hinder supplier relationships? Need to know what are considered best practices in terms of developing a minority supplier program within an organization?

The Institute for Supply Management (ISM) has recently opened its Resource Center, which features a Research on Demand service equipped to handle inquiries covering a wide range of topics.

Whether you are interested in developing strategies that help reduce the costs of purchased services, or are wondering how purchasing/supply can attract and retain high performance talent, the Research on Demand service has the tools to help.

The service can perform in-depth secondary research through its access to the most comprehensive databases available today. Staff will provide current information on the topic of interest, and objectively report the findings in a concise format.

The Research on Demand service is a joint initiative between ISM and CAPS Research. Research reports can be created on a per request basis or through an annual plan. Most reports are completed within three to five weeks.

Research requests are accepted in writing in three ways: through e-mail at researchondemand@ism.ws, via an online form at www.ism.ws/OnlineGuides/ResearchOnDemandForm.cfm, or via fax at 480-752-7890 Attn: Resource on Demand.
