Link to interaction

A supplier may be a private person or a company. All suppliers have different terms and preferences, all of which must be maintained and updated.

Output from the supplier management process

  • A new supplier is registered.

  • The supplier's terms are maintained.

  • The supplier's contact information is maintained.

All you need to register a new supplier is name, address, payment terms, delivery terms and contact information.

If there is a business relationship with larger suppliers, you will normally have relations with several contact persons. Some may be sellers while others will be invoicing and following up the purchases or projects. These people need to be defined with their contact- and work information, in addition to which situations they will be contacted.

Task involved in this process

  • Register a new supplier

    A request or an order is sent, and the requested party must be registered as a supplier.

  • Maintain and update the suppliers

    Either expand or reduce the terms for the supplier, update information and similar.

  • Document handling

    Setting- rules for suppliers regarding where the different documents will end up.

  • Communication with the supplier

    Sending out or receiving reports, price lists and other correspondence.
