Project Brief

Exist helped Transmart Carrefour create a vendor management system, an online web-based interface application that intends to consolidate various functions to manage all vendor related activities of a company or business for more efficient and seamless processing of orders/procurement and payments.

    • Early Payment Scheme (Supplier Financing ) – Option for vendors for an early invoice settlement.
    • Items Management (Data Management) – Manages the vendor’s items’ detailed information with a direct interface to the merchandising system.
    • Supplier and Merchandiser Portal – A secured web application interface where vendors, merchandisers, and other relevant users could log in and have centralized monitoring of their orders and payments.
    • B2B Messaging System (EDIConnect, XML) – Interface with vendors, banks and government systems thru various industry interface standards
    • Online e-Tax Validation (if available)
