Increase supplier interactions and maintain a strong supplier base
Traditionally organisations either use a standalone supplier database or a simple spreadsheet to manage their supplier profiles or approved supplier database.
Both of these options can result in:
Lack of accuracy and out of date information
Change in data structure or format
Unmanageable spreadsheets, especially for big data sets
Introduction of potential security risks or loss of information
Version control and distribution problems
SourceDogg’s Supplier Profile Management enables organisations to manage key profile details used to establish or maintain a business relationship with suppliers. The Buying organisation defines the details to be included in the profile, which can be a combination of ERP data and data populated by the Supplier.
Users of the buying organization can then easily view supplier interaction in a timeline format, search keywords in supplier datasheets, contracts, tag the supplier with key project information or create distribution groups.
All of the organisations supplier information is stored centrally, in one common format.
