Find a full historical account of your relationship with any supplier in your supply chain, in one place.
Each company that you see in your Companies Index has its own dedicated Company Profile, where you can find:
Key company information provided by the supplier, including their addresses, website, and a showcase of their products and services.
- Account team members who can utilise direct messages and internal notes for account management. You can add yourself to the account team to receive direct messages and updates.
ESG Impact metrics either populated by the IAND IMPACT API or provided by the supplier on a yearly basis across categories such as Carbon and Diversity.
- Opportunities that the supplier has been/is involved in and the status of the Opportunity.
Spend and performance on Projects imported from your ERP system.
Compliance status including individual documents and Compliance Level management.
Note: Company Profiles are automatically created when new suppliers are added to IAND via financial data imports made by Super users. They can also be manually added via the Companies Index. Once suppliers are onboarded, they can brand their profile and outline their products and services as well as their ESG performance. For more information on how to invite a supplier, see this IAND Academy guide.
With Company Profiles you can:
Make informed decisions. Enable project managers to quickly assess a potential supplier. Have they worked with your organisation in the past? Are they a high / medium / low performer on projects or ESG?
Reduce time and risk. Easily see which compliance information is already in place, approved and up to date, saving both you and your supplier time and resources when working on multiple projects. Super users can create a set of tailored Compliance Levels and document requests for issue across your supply chain.
- Keep in touch, all in one place. Contact members of the account team directly through the platform using the Direct Messages module. For example, send information about an upcoming account meeting, or let the supplier know if their profile is missing key information you need to continue to work with them.
