Using the RapidResponse® Supplier Collaboration application enables:
Interactive supplier engagement
Suppliers need to be an extension to your organization, not set apart from it. By connecting data, processes and people, RapidResponse allows you to collaboratively reduce process cycle times, respond immediately to customer and supplier inputs while getting more accurate insights into key decisions.
Companies can balance the requirement for control and ownership with the desire for increased engagement and coordination. Through automated B2B data exchanges, rich EDI collaboration and direct supplier interaction with RapidResponse, your enterprise can easily:
- Share purchase order and forecast requests, and initiate collaborative review and adjustments.
- Track supplier commitments and be alerted to gaps between request and commit.
- Streamline buyer review and approval of commitments.
- Monitor supplier performance through dashboards and scorecards.
- Synchronize purchase order and forecast changes with ERP.
