Organize your supplier database by a variety of logical grouping associations. Organizing your suppliers into custom groups allows you to target a more specific group of suppliers based on your specific needs and/or organizational goals. Organized supplier groups can be saved to a list for continuous reuse. Commodity and Diversity based lists are actively managed and updated in real-time.
Air-tight auditing of the whole process

Leveraging accurate data at the right time helps ensure that you are making the best sourcing decision possible and allows you to have confidence in the choices you make. The vendor profile, participation, and performance information is readily compiled into easy-to-read reports that can quickly be exported and distributed to key stakeholders.
Track Key Vendor KPI's

Promote & Report on Diversity
Target, track, and report across any/all minority & diversity codes. Built-in reports display real-time calculations of dollars awarded by classifications & diversity codes.
Quickly identify solicitations where vendor outreach may be limited, vendor participation is low, or when vendors get stuck in certain stages of the bid process.
Unlike other vendor management systems, we refuse to charge vendors needless fees. Since day one we have understood the negative impact of charging vendors unnecessary fees to participate in solicitations. Doing so can significantly limit competition by introducing unnecessary barriers to suppliers. That is why we are proud of and committed to offering these services without charging vendors.
