Supplier Registration

Supplier registration without the frustration

Designed with suppliers in mind, DriveSRM makes connecting with your company simple and easy. The user-friendly, self-service portal allows users to complete the registration process at their own pace and never times them out. If a supplier needs a break to locate a document or validate information, they can simply save their profile and log back in at a later time to finish. A simplified registration process means a more positive user experience for the valuable companies that support your business every day.

Better supplier data means better purchasing decisions

Capturing complete and accurate information about prospective suppliers during registration helps you make smarter, more informed buying decisions later. Customized forms allow you to build robust profiles for every supplier, while at the same time, eliminating duplicates in your database and identifying suppliers that do not meet company criteria. Save administrative time by collecting this information once, and storing it for all lines of business to access.

Get the full picture on every supplier including:

  • Diversity status
  • Tax ID numbers
  • Parent/child relationships
  • Certifications
  • Insurance policies
  • 1099 forms
  • Geographic locations
  • Commodity codes


Supplier Engagement

Create, store, and search all supplier contracts

Manage all of your supplier contracts in a searchable, enterprise-wide platform. DriveSRM allows you to build contract templates with standardized terms and conditions to ensure that company requirements are being met across the organization. With its simple the drag and drop functionality, users can set up logic-based, workflows that enforce rules and dependencies for each project milestone (e.g., non-disclosures are signed before contracts are distributed).

Keep supplier profiles up to date

Having a large, diverse supplier base is only a competitive advantage if you can quickly engage your suppliers when you need them. Expired licenses, insurances and other documents can lead to sourcing delays and missed business opportunities. DriveSRM’s email alerts help you stay ahead of document expirations and keep profiles up to date. Users can customize the when the notifications are sent according to business rules—30 days prior, 60 days prior, etc.

DriveSRM delivers value by helping you:

  • On-board and engage only approved, qualified suppliers
  • Promote competition among suppliers
  • Enforce contract and rate standards
  • Shorten buying time
  • Manage contract milestones
  • Track document versions and histories
