      Frequently Asked Questions

        What is the most efficient way of securing compliance?

        Automate maintenance of supplier certifications, documentation, and scoring by transferring the responsibility for updates and verifications to your suppliers.

        Monitor compliance with full visibility of supplier activity including contracts, event history, contact information, certificates, files, communications, and more. With Supplier Management software, all supplier data is readily available with reports, notifications, and flag alerts for non-compliance issues.

        You no longer have to chase suppliers for data updates. Suppliers simply log in to update their information and certificates directly under their profile and receive automated expiry reminders.

        Which tools do you integrate with?

        Integrate with enterprise resource planning (ERP) tools and other master supplier data to include all relevant information about goods and services being sourced.

        Customize integrations with seamless data flow for solutions such as ERP, DocuSign, P2P, eSourcing, Contract Management, Risk Management, and more.

        How does automated supplier onboarding work?

        Provide a link on your company website for interested suppliers to register on your database, or issue a link via email. Supplier Management software verifies email addresses for security purposes and confirms the completion of required registration questionnaires.

        Automated notifications let the relevant users know once a new supplier has registered. Review new suppliers and accept or reject them based on scoring thresholds, transferring them automatically to the supplier database.

        The automated onboarding process saves time and requires fewer people in the initial screening, and offers a standardized approach toward all suppliers.

        How can I improve my tender workload?

        Reduce tender workload by up to 80% with supplier score tracking to gain visibility of all supplier information. Customize your supplier surveys with scorecards, KPIs, and more to compare suppliers from a 360° view.

        Supplier Management software provides transparency for all buyers using the same supplier and enables proactive supplier management.
