One consequence of the new world we find ourselves in is a necessary move to a more remote workforce. While this trend had an ebb and flow prior to the onset of the Covid-19 virus, it has now become a business continuity initiative for many companies who are trying to survive and a tactical realignment for those who continue to thrive. When it comes to vendor management and vendor centric back-office functions like Accounts Payable (AP) and Procurement / Purchasing, a critical component to a successful remote workforce initiative will be driving a high-level of vendor self-service. By driving vendor activities that are not value add to your organization back to the vendor, you are able to free your remote workforce back to value added tasks that contribute to your companies bottom line.
Below is a list of some the automation tools your organization can deploy in a cloud-hosted, single-tenant environment to achieve both an efficient and transparent remote based back-office operation and a successful vendor self-service program:
- Vendor Portal / Supplier Portal
- AP Automation & Remote Expense Workflow
- Dynamic Discounting
- Data Capture and Document Assembly
- Vendor Onboarding and Administration
- PO Dispatch and Update
