Your Benefits

Facilitate Supply Chain Growth without Increasing Administrative Costs

Expanding your supply chain without increasing head count can be difficult and places limitations on growth. Removing manual processes within the supply chain can allow organizations to break out of this cycle. By empowering suppliers to self-serve the data and carry out key tasks in a dedicated portal, you release internal teams to perform real value-add activities rather than manual tasks. This in turn leads to a key additional benefit which is reductions in internal administrative costs.

Work More Collaboratively with Your Direct Spend Suppliers

Empower suppliers to improve the service they offer to you, via an online vendor collaboration solution which allows SAP supplier data to be exchanged quickly and provides visibility to suppliers of key data you wish to share. If suppliers can self-serve data such as material forecasts and key performance indicators they can tailor their behavior to ensure they are providing you with the best service possible and as this is real-time information from core systems, they are reacting to the current version of events.

Ensure Key Data Moves into Core Systems Quickly and Efficiently direct spend portal allows your suppliers to submit key data online, using minimal clicks. This data is rapidly moved into the appropriate locations (subject to approval where required) in your core SAP systems for wider visibility across your organization. This allows informed decisions to be made based on the latest version of the data. The supplier is given a tool for easy data submission and the internal user is given an intuitive location to view and approve submitted data.
