Supplier Management Systems Get a Software Upgrade

As supplier management has become an almost entirely digital game, countless supplier management software systems have come onto the market. Unfortunately, much of the offered software does little to cut through the confusion and complexity of the modern supply chain. It just replaces in-person back and forth conversations with digital ones and tries to replicate previously used paper and people processes with digital versions of the same thing

New supplier management software, however, is moving past replication and leveraging the power of a digital system to streamline management in ways we’ve never seen before. At integrum, we’ve been working to build these top of the line systems since 1996. To this end, the platforms we offer don’t just store documents, compliance checks, and other information. Instead, the system uses multiple portals to allow both you and your suppliers (or contractors) to access the same system at once. Since each portal is constructed separately, they’re designed to make reporting easy for all parties and cut down on the need to move data between multiple instances of management software.

A Trusted Supplier Management System

Not only does this integrated supplier management software save time and confusion, but it can also cut down on risk. Since everyone involved can see what’s happening in real time, it’s easy to catch an issue before it becomes a big problem. By removing the barrier to communication between different datasets, we make it easy to keep all stakeholders up to date. Therefore, integrum is trusted by big-name companies such as Coca-Cola and Jetstar and used by over 1 million people in 200 different countries

The ease of use offered by integrum systems also helps keep you on track. It might seem like a small improvement to get rid of the annoyance of complicated and hard to learn systems but making it easy for employees on both sides to use the system accurately also protects you from risk. Think of it this way: if your employees are thinking too hard about how to use the software itself, they’re not going to be as attentive to other things they should be considering. By simplifying process, the integrum system makes compliance easy — and reduces the risk of non-compliance due to confusion and user error to a far greater degree

Beyond Supplier Management

In addition to supplier management features, the integrum platform comes stocked with other key applications as well. When we set up your instance of the platform, you can decide which apps are most important to you — from document management to HR functions and even e-learning systems..

There are some significant benefits to an integrated system like this. Having one platform improves ease of use even more since you don’t have to learn to navigate multiple systems. Plus, having these different features in one place allows you to see how they interact with each other easily and automatically right in the platform.
