Digitization of Supplier onboarding process

The results of supplier onboarding systems implemented in large procurement teams have been promising. A reduction in cycle time of up to 99% and a 45% reduction in costs, combined with easier consistent risk mitigation and the visibility needed for easy audits, has been realized at a number of organisations. Organisations are wisely unwilling to risk their reputation by cutting corners when it comes to compliance. Their stakeholders, in addition to visibility, also demand efficiency; it’s hard to plan projects efficiently when a company can’t get a consistent schedule for completing onboarding processes. In this course Medius tool-kit is used to illustrate how the processes can be digitized.
