Creating a process to handle the increasing number of suppliers, both domestic and foreign, is a challenge for many mid-sized companies. HedgeHog, an Indianapolis-based provider of online procurement services for the mid-market, has introduced a new supplier portal that can build, qualify and manage organic databases of suppliers. Buyers can screen and select qualified vendors based on specific core competencies as well as other criteria.
The supplier portal, an add-on module to Hedgehog's eSourcing negotiation platform, is hosted and easily integrates with Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle and other databases. This module can create lists for RFIs, RFQs, RFPs, surveys and audits and contains a bulletin board feature that notifies suppliers of upcoming bidding opportunities.
Additionally HedgeHog can also help companies identify, qualify and connect with suppliers throughout the world.Value Chain eNewsletter.
