What is Supplier Management Best Practice?

Ivalua Launches Innovations to Improve Sourcing Decisions, Savings Capture and Supply Chain Visibility

In the modern business environment, organizations rely heavily on a complex network of vendors and suppliers to ensure their success. While these networks can contribute greatly to your organization achieving its strategic goals, they can also introduce considerable risk to your organization.

With this ever-growing dependency on these networks and the increase in risk, this means the traditional methods of onboarding, assessing, and managing these entities with disparate or manual processes no longer meet the expectations of stakeholders and customers, as well as failing to meet the requirements of auditors and regulators in many cases.

It is critical for organizations to have processes for onboarding, assessing, and monitoring their supply bases to optimize their performance and reduce the risks to their organization.

Solutions - Supplier Management

Ivalua’s Supplier Management solutions provide a modern and digital process for on-boarding vendors and suppliers, establishing and maintaining accurate master data, and assessing and mitigating risks using internal and external performance and risk data, all in a 360-degree view that informs all processes involving these vendors and suppliers. The Ivalua solutions provide efficient and modern cloud-based solutions for meeting the needs and expectations of all your stakeholders.

Gather and validate the necessary information from your vendors quickly and effectively

Ivalua’s supplier portal allows you to quickly collect information from the supplier to support a simple, quick, and effective onboarding process. Ivalua’s no fee supplier portal provides your supply partners self-service access to provide all required information, including, but not limited to, certifications, qualifications, and financial information.

Ivalua’s robust and configurable workflow supports your compliance management activities and provides you the ability to segment suppliers and have various subject matter experts within your organization to validate and approve new suppliers or supplier changes.

Ivalua’s solution can also become the source of truth for vendor data throughout your organization.  Combining our supplier portal with smart deduplication and merge capabilities can provide you with clean and reliable records that can be used in Ivalua’s solution and across multiple systems and ERP(s).

Suppliers and internal stakeholders can review the improvement plans, assign and track action items, review key metrics, and perform project management actions on these improvement projects in the solution.
