Fostering Collaboration with Supply Chain
The Supplier Management Module features a large database system that is capable of handling a vast and varied amount of supplier data, including materials supplied and financial information. Global suppliers can be added to make them visible in all locations. Specification for supplied materials can be defined elaborately using multiple levels. This means that a particular material can be organized in a hierarchal manner. Example: Tubes can have subordinate level based on the material that the tube is made of, such as steel, copper, plastic, etc. Below this could be another level based on Diameters, and so on. They also can include information such as approved supplier or preferred supplier for a material or product.
Suppliers are allowed to access QISS through supplier portal. They can complete questionnaires directly in QISS which in turn allows faster approval and on-boarding. In addition, supplier certifications information is kept and reminders are generated in the event of certification expiration. Audit reports can be uploaded and Supplier score cards can also be included. An operational advantage is for the QISS users to issue Nonconformance, and QISS users to issue Corrective Action notices to supplier representatives, who can perform required actions. This can be monitored, if desired by QISS users to ensure satisfactory and compliant processes are followed while they are being actioned.

Another powerful function is its dedicated search engine that allows for not only a simple search by account numbers or the like, but a systematic and detailed advance search. This capability allows the user to “drill down” into supplier data to allow the user to make the best purchase choice. Use of the Supplier Management Module can create a readily available supply chain database that allows the User to pinpoint particular procurement actions, as required by their business needs. The Supplier Management Module allows for a supplier to have multiple supply sites listed under the parent company’s corporate designation. Additionally, a User can search by several modalities, including, by site, location, materials supplied or specific type of certification (ISO, API, etc.).
