Frequently asked questions

Also known as a vendor portal, a supplier portal connects businesses with third parties through a shared system. This allows companies that work with multiple vendors to communicate, track orders and collaborate.

Supplier portal software is an integrated online solution for supplier relationship management, allowing multiple parties to access a shared single point of data. By digitizing processes and improving partner communication, supplier portal software streamlines supply chain and vendor management.

Partner collaboration refers to the process of two or more companies working together for their mutual benefit. This could be a material supplier and a manufacturer working together to create a physical product, or a business referring work to a third party when they are at capacity.

Supplier collaboration establishes opportunities for businesses of all sizes to work together, access support and provide services that they may be unable to offer alone. This promotes competition and innovation within the market and improves the global accessibility of products and services.

Supplier collaboration works best when all parties can access the same data source. By investing in versatile supplier portal software and onboarding their partners and vendors, businesses can monitor orders, improve response time, reduce manual tasks and minimize errors throughout the supply chain.
