Learn About Supplier Diversity Tools

How do you track supplier diversity?

While there are many steps involved with tracking supplier diversity, data collection and organization are among the most important. This allows organizations to track critical metrics such as the amount of money spent with diverse suppliers, the number of contracts awarded, and the number of diverse suppliers your procurement team engages through RFPs. 

It’s important to note that most organizations have specific requirements to track diverse suppliers, such as a supplier must have a third-party diversity certification to qualify for diversity initiatives.

What is supplier diversity management software?

Supplier diversity management software is often a suite of products an organization uses to identify their diverse suppliers, measure spend with diverse suppliers, and ultimately increase their spend with diverse suppliers. Some diversity management software includes economic impact reporting, allowing organizations to see how their local and diverse spending impacts local areas through job creation support and other metrics.

What is a supplier sourcing database?

A supplier sourcing database is a database used by buyers when they are looking for new products and services to purchase.

How do I identify diverse suppliers for my supplier diversity program?

Most organizations require third-party certification in order to count money spent with a supplier as part of their supplier diversity program goals. You can learn more about third-party certifications here.

Does the SupplierGateway platform integrate with my company’s ERP/AP systems?

Yes, our platform integrates with all of your current systems through API.
