PVM Supplier Management. The functions.

Supplier evaluation

A scoring questionnaire is used to conduct supplier evaluations. The system-based evaluation ensures the fast availability of supplier evaluation results across one or several evaluation periods.

Supplier portal

The supplier portal is the connecting link with the supplier. Suppliers can directly enter their basic data like quality management, certification, machinery and fields of expertise as well as submit offers. Furthermore, you can share documents such as specifications, product descriptions, etc., or use the automatic status tracking feature. 

Supplier self-assessment

Precise and up-to date information on all suppliers, universally available throughout the company. The software takes a supplier self-assessment to collect structural information such as master data, machinery, quality management and supplier competence, thus providing a perfectly tailored solution for use in your operative and strategic buying.

Supplier financial analysis

The supplier financial analysis provides an assessment of the suppliers’ current economic situation and draws conclusions on how it is likely to develop, particularly with regard to future innovative capabilities, profits and liquidity. The supplier financial analysis focuses on the supplier’s long-term capability to deliver.

Supplier risk management

Supplier risk management is a key element in ensuring reliability of delivery in respect to quality and deadlines. Supplier risk management monitors suppliers in terms of their performance and financial risks. Potential vulnerabilities are identified early on, and appropriate measures to minimize risks are taken. 

Supplier database

All key supplier information is stored at a central location in the integrated supplier database. This ensures that staff within each department is able to access, modify or delete the information relevant to their work. Suppliers update their own data, while company employees conduct supplier evaluations at regular intervals.
