About inriver Supplier Onboarding
As a retailer, you are often faced with the handling of several suppliers and several products. It is not uncommon to have hundreds or perhaps thousands of suppliers adding product information in various formats. Add to that a constantly increasing number of products each of these suppliers are offering to you, and you soon have a complex onboarding process to deal with.
Supplier Onboarding provides a single point of exchange between you and your suppliers. Simplifying the management of suppliers and the onboarding of their product information ensures that you get immediate access to accurate product information.
