Working with multiple vendors across different territories means varying compliance requirements.
It’s important to know at a glance whether those compliance requirements are being met and are up to date.
Onboarding new vendors and working with them on an ongoing basis requires reliable, up-to-date data.
Standard processes are not always followed, meaning unnecessary manual effort to complete vendor records and a lack of confidence in data integrity.
