A simple way to manage and maintain supplier certificates
For certain certifications, your business is required to ensure that your suppliers’ plants have the necessary quality and environmental certificates. In practice, certificate status is often requested and managed locally by individual departments – resulting in a huge administrative overhead for both sides. However, this doesn’t give you a global view of your supplier’s current certificate status.
With the SupplyOn solution for certificate management, you can retrieve up-to-date quality and environmental certificates from your suppliers in one central database – including a copy of the certificate and its date of validity. You have company-wide access to this centrally managed information. The benefit of this: your suppliers maintain their certificates here themselves. This ensures that they are updated, and that your supplier is automatically reminded to upload an updated version when the old certificate expires. This also means that you automatically have access to necessary proof of supplier certification when carrying out quality management audits.
How you benefit from certificate management with SupplyOn
- You eliminate the need for periodic requests for certificate data and thus lower your process costs.
- The prompt availability of all updated certificated via SupplyOn simplifies and accelerates the decision-making process when awarding contracts.
- By having your suppliers compile certificates in one central system, all of your employees worldwide have access to the current status. You eliminate redundant data maintenance at different locations.
