If you are like most companies, you have a diverse mix of suppliers. The large ones have big IT organisations with sophisticated systems that can support complex integration requests. The small ones, however, have limited budgets, resources and experience to do business electronically. As a result, you may have to exchange faxes, emails and phone calls with small suppliers to share details about purchase orders, shipments and invoices.
We can help you to realise the dream of 100% automation of your procure-to-pay process with suppliers with a broad range of enablement options that are both low cost and easy-to-use. With our onboarding services, you can outsource the entire process of supplier enablement to us.
- Web Forms – Our web forms service is a popular way to enable suppliers to exchange supply chain documents such as purchase orders, ship notices and invoices. Available in a variety of languages from French and German to Korean and Chinese, our web forms service does not require users to install or license software. Only a browser and an Internet connection are required. Learn more about our Web Forms.
- Microsoft Excel Adapter – Many small businesses use spreadsheets to create purchase orders, invoices, sales forecasts and inventory reports. So why make them re-key data from spreadsheets into a website? With our Microsoft Excel adapter, suppliers send and receive XML documents directly from Microsoft Excel. Because it uses the same familiar interface that your suppliers are already accustomed to there is no training required. Learn more about our Excel Adapter.
- Fax to EDI – Many companies are working with smaller non-EDI compliant vendors who send in purchase orders and other documents via fax. Our Fax to EDI service extracts and transforms fax content into electronic data, delivering the EDI or XML formatted data automatically to your business system or via OpenText Trading Grid within one to two hours. Learn more about our Fax to EDI service.
