In this white paper, we look to demystify the topic of supplier portals and supplier portal strategy.
The area has become increasingly confusing as the number of different tools and systems used in the procure-tech landscape is growing constantly. The term portal has become something of a catch-all and the tools being referred to solve a lot of different problems. While suppliers do have to log in to these tools, technically making them all portals, this is not really how enterprises are thinking about their supplier portal strategy.
So, how should we really be thinking about supplier portals or supplier portal strategy, and how can they be used to set suppliers up for success?
