There are several ways an organization can export supplier data for mastering. Typically a supplier list can be constructed either manually or directly from any systems that track supplier data.
Common sources of supplier data sources include:
- Supplier contact lists (e.g. Spreadsheets, Excel, etc. )
- ERP systems (e.g. Oracle, SAP, Salesforce, etc.)
- Payment / Invoice systems e.g. SAP Ariba, Oracle, IBM, Bravo, NeoGrid, etc.)
- Vendor management systems (e.g. Basware, Coupa, SAP Ariba, GEP, Zycus, etc.)
