Vendor Management

Collaborate with your vendors on a cloud-based platform

Bring vendors closer to your organization with the vendor management suite. On Unifize every record is a real-time conversation, which helps your team collaborate with vendors on onboarding/audits, non-conformances, enquiries, and product development.

The configurable checklists on each record helps your team stay in sync with each other, and gives you the data you need to identify supplier trends. Vendor onboarding has three focus areas – company information, quality processes and certifications, and rating/approval. Vendor audits all you to conduct your audits remotely and asynchronously, and makes in-person visits efficient, if required. Inquiries and new product development allow your vendor, quality, production and finance teams to collaborate with vendors on items you need to source or develop – this reduces cycle times by up to 90%.

Managers get to use standard or customized dashboards for each processes. Track trends, tasks, and correlations by almost any parameter such as non-conformances by vendor, pending inquiries by project/product etc. Drill-down into conversations from any chart and check statuses, reassign ownership or escalate at the click of a button.
