Configuring service settings for Supplier Management

Users with Company Administrator rights can customize the way Supplier Management works.

Adding suppliers

By default, companies can add new suppliers to their network only by sending out invitations to their business partners. By setting up a customizable supplier approval process, you can enable users from your company to suggest new suppliers to your company in a way that matches your company’s internal process requirements.

Supplier information request templates

If your company deals with multiple suppliers from various fields, you may require different type of information from suppliers from each field. Through service settings, you can create multiple information request templates that define what type of information you require from each supplier group.

The first template on the list of templates, approval template, is used in the approval process of supplier proposals. The other templates on the list are used for onboarding templates through, for example, invitation campaigns.
