Extending Your Supply Chain with QAD Supplier Portal — QAD Supplier Portal is a software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution that provides real-time inventory and supply chain insight to manufacturers and their suppliers. In addition, with Supplier Portal, customers and suppliers can actively interact with each other, and by using the self-service capabilities suppliers can, for example, maintain company data, create ASNs and print labels.
Manufacturers face many supply chain challenges, including:
- Constant pressure to better control and reduce procurement cost
- Rising customer demands for rapid response to change and expectations of shorter delivery time frames
- The lack of real-time information between customers and suppliers that leads to excess and obsolete inventory
- The complexities and risks associated with expanding compliance regulations
To support all of these challenges, the QAD Supplier Portal provides greater access to real-time customer information to suppliers and streamlines the communications in both directions. Learn More
