Supplier Diversity Management
IVS Solutions develops, implements, and manages custom registration portals. Potential suppliers are able to register with your company, allowing your designated personnel to track, manage, and correspond with both diverse and non-diverse suppliers as needed. The portal is hosted on an IVS Solutions server, but accessed through your company’s existing web site and designed to match its style, look, and feel incorporating company logos, color schemes, and appropriate content provided by you.
In addition to standard general information and demographics, you have the ability to request the potential supplier s to provide information that is important to your company operations. Our system also allows potential suppliers to upload certificates and other documents, such as capability statements and product lists.
