Our Vendor Onboarding Solutions

vendor portal (supplier portal) can help expedite, standardize and streamline your vendor onboarding processes by providing a platform for gathering and managing vendor data and documentation in a secure, collaborative, vendor self-service environment.

How it works:

The steps in the vendor onboarding process.

We understand that the processes and tasks associated with vendor onboarding and ongoing administration is often a complex, multi-step process that spans several departments and requires a solution that facilitates time-sensitive collaboration. The vendor onboarding process generally requires data and document input from vendors followed by review and/or approval from relevant stake holders like procurement/purchasing, risk management, legal, finance, logistics, accounts payable (AP), field operations or others. ICG’s vendor onboarding (supplier onboarding) solutions provide back-end workflow components to insure that documents and data are getting to the right people for review and/or approval.

A useful component of ICG’s vendor onboarding solution is the ability to integrate with internal systems (ERP, financial, data management, supply chain, etc.) to update vendor masters and validate information. Interfaces with third party systems is a crucial feature as well i.e., TIN Check, D&B, etc. to take advantage of third party resources to establish credit worthiness, validate TIN and SSN numbers of prospective vendors and ensure any suppliers do not appear on government or industry watch lists.

Once the vendor is onboarded and doing business, there are also on-going maintenance activities that must take place such as insurance renewals, licensing and compliance tracking, sales & use tax, etc.. The ICG Consulting vendor onboarding solution supports all of the ongoing maintenance activities needed to keep vendor information up to date and your supplier in compliance. ICG’s vendor portal based vendor onboarding solutions can also provide automatic notifications to you and your vendors when critical expirations are approaching, such as insurance policies, licenses, permits, and other regulatory certifications. This allows you to be proactive and insure your critical suppliers remain in compliance and keep your risk low.
