Client has 375 purchasing categories each of which needs to be created as an Approved Supplier List and linked to hundreds of suppliers.

Business requirement:

1. Inventory is not installed, so there are no item numbers
2. They do not create contract or blanket purchasing agreements.
3. Generate Approved Supplier List Entries concurrent process requires agreement information so is not an option.

Customer needs a list of approved suppliers for a category for reference when creating the RFQ / RFI.


Use Case:


ASL in Negotiations – Client performs hundreds per year
1)Requisition lines are added to RFQ (outcome for them is Purchase Order)

2)Overview section: Choose Response Rules > Rule > Check “Restrict to invited suppliers” box (default) – works with box checked or not

3)Suppliers section > Click Search and Add button

4)Suppliers: Add Suppliers window opens > Choose Category Name from LOV

5)ASL Suppliers for that category appear and can select all or choose among to speed negotiation creation. (These are just the 4 manually created as Approved Supplier Entries for this category.)
There are 375 categories;
Thousands of suppliers, many with multiple sites;
1 Approved Supplier Entry for each supplier / supplier site combination = Thousands on Approved Supplier Entries need to be created.

6)Negotiation ready to publish to suppliers

You can pull entire category ASLs (one or multiple) into a negotiation to identify pre-qualified suppliers to include in a negotiation, saving time and effort during creation and sending the request to suppliers who can fulfill the negotiation.
