What is a supplier portal solution?

Supplier portals include tools for companies to establish, manage and govern access for a network of diverse suppliers and partners to enterprise supply chain information. These external users need secure, timely access to information within a company but should not be granted the same level of access as internal employees. Supplier portal solutions offer a platform to share the right information with the right suppliers in an IT-friendly, secure and convenient manner.

The best supplier portals feature built-in identity and access management, providing a single-sign-on environment that is secure, compliant and fully auditable. Businesses can build their own applications and easily integrate backend systems, such as ERP and content management systems.

Supplier Portal is built on an identity and access management platform to ensure security when sharing information with fine grained user provisioning.
