Supplier Direct Input

Collect product compliance data from suppliers

The regulation landscape is becoming increasingly more complex driven by new regulations, such as the German Supply Chain Act, and increasing public awareness. Compliance engineers are required to collect product compliance information from their supply chain. Often, information is exchanged via email, involving multiple users at customers and suppliers. This can be difficult to keep track of, potentially leading to a process that is not auditable. Furthermore, there may not be an efficient way to feed collected data into your product compliance management system.
