Supplier relationship management - ERP Tools

Enabling supplier relationship management has been one of the hottest growth areas in technology. This is because every enterprise—not just manufacturing companies—have suppliers of products and services to manage. With the extreme pressure for continued bottom-line returns, every company is looking to reduce its spending. The big issues in supplier relations management are:

  1. Lack of visibility and control over all categories of spending
  2. Silo supply solutions and processes
  3. Inefficient communication with suppliers
  4. Manual, labor-intensive processes
  5. Not leveraging complete supply base
  6. No single integrated insight into activity, performance, or spend
