We - Wood You Like Ltd - sell stuff, so we are suppliers. We buy stuff too, so we have suppliers
I've just counted the number of suppliers we have: 44 - and we're only a small two-wo/man-band.
How many do you have and how many of them keep in regular contact with you, not meaning the times they send you a new invoice of course!
I can count the suppliers who regularly keep in contact with us on one hand: 10%
