Supplier On-boarding helping to solve

Leveraging your P2P solution

When you have invested heavily in solutions to automate, streamline and better manage your P2P environment your organization needs to benefit from this to maximize electronic trading with suppliers so on-boarding in its many forms is key.

Get the most from electronic trading

The more suppliers you can trade with electronically will better support your efficiency goals and better manage process. Getting suppliers on-boarded to trade electronically means assessing each supplier’s capabilities and how best to interact with them which can be time consuming.

Many standards and electronic trading approaches

After understanding what capabilities suppliers may have it then comes to the time to start on-boarding. However, you will then need to either dictate electronic trading processes which can mean slower roll-outs or you can spend time managing multiple connectivity methods or document formats, all slow going to manage in-house.

Specific trading circumstances

You may as an organization have a very broad supplier base. This means what you buy may vary how you trade with suppliers. Do you buy off the shelf or manufactured to order, or both. The document set you trade with suppliers will dictate how the process works which in itself may preclude some suppliers being able to trade truly electronically.

Self service

Many systems or processes cannot be made available to suppliers. Either due to the sensitivity of having a third party in your environment or there’s issues with licensing and or data restrictions. The greater number of options you can offer a supplier to trade electronically the better the uptake for them and your organization.
