Connecting TSM to other SciQuest Solutions

Our supplier information management solutions can take your supplier management process to a new level on its own, or you can pair it with one or more of our solutions to drive additional positive impact across your business. Some of the benefits you can expect to realize are:

  • Eliminate duplicate supplier data between Sourcing, Procurement, Contract Management, Diversity, and other business functions.
  • Increase efficiency by working with suppliers that you know - business information has already been collected, verified and approved and fewer (non-qualified) suppliers need to be reviewed.
  • TSM provides a searchable database of approved and potential suppliers easing identification of suppliers to include in RFX events or eProcurement transactions.
