portalink automates more.
By combining our considerable B2B marketplace experience with our leading-edge transaction digitisation technologies, Portalink developed a Supplier Portal that goes further than other systems. Timely exchange of information between suppliers and buyer's is critical for good business management and waste reduction.
The shortcoming of other systems in the market are (a) they are only fully digital for a small percentage of the biggest suppliers, e.g. 20%, and (b) the majority of smaller and mid-sized vendors who are not EDI or GS1 compliant refuse to manually enter the required data into the portal. Portalink's Supplier Portal processes static non-digital files from smaller vendors with the same efficiency as electronic exchanges from the biggest vendors.
The Portalink Supplier Portal is an electronic gateway for all data interchange including catalogue management, such as product data and pricing updates (by GS1 or spreadsheet), and Purchase Orders, PO Acknowledgements, Advanced Shipping Notifications, Invoices and Credit Notes (by EDI or analogue files such as PDF). All transactions are automatically validated by the Portalink workflow system before passing to the Buyer's ERP.
Portalink enables your organisation to dynamically receive and upload rich supplier product data from Suppliers to their internal eCatalogue
Portalink provides a gateway to prevent products passing to the eCatalogue without the correct contract pricing, codes, search filters, images etc.
Portalink automates ALL transactions, including Purchase Orders, Invoices and ASN’s between your organisation and the Suppliers in a fraction of the time and cost of traditional EDI.

By filling the gaps between the (ERP) systems at either end of the supply chain, Portalink compliments and enhances the user experience.
Portalink has a unique capability to bridge data gaps between our suppliers and our P2P system.
