Supplier management - centralized for efficiency
Comprehensive supplier enablement is critical to maximizing user adoption of your procurement system and increasing spend visibility. Yet how can you enable the suppliers that end users want and still improve compliance? That's why we built the SciQuest Supplier Network and support it with Managed Services. It's a single convenient system to bring together maximum supplier content for your organization.
The SciQuest Supplier Network and Managed Services
This robust infrastructure is SciQuest's central hub for communicating with more than 800 leading suppliers - from hosted catalog content and prices to punch-out catalogs and electronic order/invoice transmission. SciQuest's Managed Services ensure the network's integrity and support its continual growth. Access our supplier network for a low-risk, cost-effective method to quickly enable a critical mass of suppliers. At the same time, you'll free up resources for more strategic procurement initiatives.
Suppliers have access to our Supplier Enablement Services as well as to our state-of-the-art Supplier Portal. The Supplier Portal is the suppliers' tool for rapid data transfer and updating catalog content. Our portal also provides complete insight into the supplier-to-buyer enablements on the SciQuest Supplier Network , aiding direct buyer-to-supplier communications in the enablement process and quick resolution of content or order issues.
