Supplier Onboarding: On board and on your side faster.

Start your supplier relationships on the right foot. By making it easy for suppliers to get onboarded, they’ll return the favor with increased discounts and more collaboration. Establishing a more consistent onboarding process and accelerating supplier information collection, we make it simpler for them and you. That means reduced cycle times, improved compliance and improved certification management and workflow.

With a faster, easier process to manage certifications and other industry or regulatory information through robust, configurable supplier-facing tools, you’ll also help reduce supplier risk.

Supplier Information: Better information, better relationships, better business.

Arm yourself with unparalleled levels of clarity to identify the best suppliers for your sourcing and procurement needs, and build relationships that build business success. Knowing which suppliers to work with and which to avoid is an ongoing, holistic process.

Our solution provides simplicity in managing supplier data requirements from both internal and external data sources. Determine helps you aggregate, compile and analyze in-depth supplier profiles by minimizing data redundancies, improving accuracy and efficiency, and letting you find the right supplier data quickly—regardless of supplier location or organizational structure.

Supplier Risk & Performance: Spoiler alerts.

Rewrite the rules on intelligence gathering in your organization by putting your suppliers and KPI trends under a microscope. See every detail on supplier profiles, every transaction and contract term, with subtle nuance, right there in stunning clarity.

Our automated supplier monitoring and scoring tool puts multiple perspectives on to one dashboard. Rate suppliers against enterprise performance and quality parameters, and build scorecards for 360° vendor comparisons—decide how to mitigate risk or when to redirect business. No surprises.

D&B Integration: Verification, confirmation, confidence.



Business intelligence is risk management. By integrating D&B with supplier information, you instantly generate a more dimensionalized portrait of every supplier through trusted sources. Selecting and managing the most reliable suppliers protects your business against disruption by staying ahead of the factors that impact their – and your – ability to deliver. A full picture also helps you meet your global compliance, sustainability and diversity requirements. The ultimate tool for supplier risk management.


Action Plan Management: Always have a Plan B (and C, D…)

When issues crop up with suppliers and supply chains (and they will), you need a seamless shift to a bulletproof alternative. Our Action Plan Management is your 20/20 foresight tool for planning every eventuality—whether it’s related to information or transactions. It lets you manage requests during supplier disruptions and other issues without missing a beat.

You’ll save time by using an action plan linked to your supplier activities such as delivery dates, quality issues and other actionable activities. Call it resilience, call it Plan B. Just make sure you have it.
