The Scanmarket SBM module offers one system to handle all supplier data, multiple questionnaires depending on categories, segments, risk factors and more.
You have one supplier pool including the information necessary to assess if a supplier should be included in upcoming events. Use the supplier score-tracking for better visibility, to reduce tender workload (80% of the generic supplier information is tracked via SBM), to easily get access to updated information and to ensure proactive supplier management rather than reactive. The module provides transparency for all buyers using the same supplier.
With the SBM module you no longer have to chase suppliers for data updates. All suppliers receive their own login, allowing them to push up-to-date information, reducing your need to send manual requests for information. The suppliers are responsible for their own data. They can update their certificates directly under their profile, and receive automated expiry reminders.
Let suppliers easily submit their registration to your database via the supplier self-registration feature. This allows you to place a link on your company's website for interested suppliers, or issue a link to send via email. The feature includes an efficient screening process in three steps:
- Basic information
- Verify email (extra security)
- Complete registration questionnaires
Automated notifications let the relevant users know once a new supplier has registered. The automated onboarding process helps you to easily review the company information and questionnaire data submitted by the supplier. If scoring is enabled in questionnaire this will further help ease the review of new suppliers by enabling score thresholds. Once a new supplier has been reviewed simply click 'Accept' to transfer to the database, or click 'Reject' and this supplier will not be transferred.
The automated onboarding process is time efficient and require fewer people involved in the initial screening and offers a professional approach towards suppliers.
With SBM you have a central communications repository with all supplier information gathered one place. Store anything from ad hoc messages, automatic notifications for expiring files, scheduled reminders when the supplier needs to update their information and certificates. Having supplier data centrally stored gives full transparency for all buyers who are using the same supplier.
With advanced search and filtering you can easily filter on both company data and questionnaire information. You can also conduct cross-searches on multiple attributes e.g. match a category with a certain company size or certificate. The advanced search feature offers extensive drill-down options. Create reports on any data of your choosing or continue with further analysis in Excel.
Monitor compliance with full visibility of supplier information and activity including contracts, event history, contact information, certificates, files, communications and more. Having all supplier data readily available online with reports, notifications and flags to alert you of none-compliance.
The SBM Dashboard offers a complete overview of all supplier activities, incl. one point of entry for all events/contracts per supplier. With the SBM Dashboard your suppliers no longer need invitation links via email, instead they can access events directly via the dashboard. Avoid event invites and contract data getting stuck in the inbox, the dashboard offers an overview of all upcoming events allowing anyone with access to the dashboard a full overview.
