Protect your company and its reputation from the first time you work with a supplier and over the course of the supplier lifecycle.

Risk mitigation starts with Supplier Onboarding

Prebuilt and highly configurable supplier journeys by segment ask suppliers the right questions, at the right time, in their language.

Suppliers input information themselves eliminating hours of manual work by your vendor management team.

Key fields are collected, data is validated, and policies are enforced in real time to ensure vendor master accuracy and global regulatory compliance.

Once the supplier is approved, the supplier Golden Record is automatically created in your ERP and synced with other systems via the Secure Open Adapter.

To be sure Golden Records stay Golden, supplier information is continuously monitored by apexportal. If something changes, the vendor master team is alerted for prompt remediation.

Risk Management: No Longer a Separate Department or Process

When risk management is integrated with supplier onboarding, you have a frontline control for compliance with ethics, IT and
business continuity, supplier financial standing requirements, and all your risk and policy standards.

Automatic Assignment and Workflow

Assign one or more questionnaires to your suppliers based on location, types of services or products, spend level or other characteristics.

Automated workflow engages your suppliers to complete their questionnaires, validate the information they provide, score their answers, and review and approve the relationship.

Remediation and Re-certification

If a supplier doesn’t pass all the risk criteria, an automated remediation process can be activated.

A search capability allows you to compare suppliers who meet criteria based on specific data attributes, for example, all suppliers in a geographical region who fall under a risk threshold.

“Where apexanalytix’s supplier management capabilities are a perfect match is for customers who are primarily interested in data integrity, financial security, controls and fraud prevention. We could not think of a better place to start on the supplier management and compliance journey than capturing, validating and maintaining accurate supplier information.”
