Use Warm Commerce as a Supplier Portal   

Warm Commerce now supports creation and maintenance of company Supplier Portals giving your company the ability to direct your current and potential new suppliers to a customized portal. 

Not only does this enhance your supplier pre-qualification and selection process, well-managed portal can dramatically improve the quality of your supplier data and ability to communicate effectively with your suppliers 

Please reach out to our Member Success team for more information 


Create and Manage an Approved Vendors List (AVL) 

Designated supply chain personnel can create an AVL, mark suppliers as approved, with approved suppliers then appearing in search results and in supplier profiles. This allows your supply chain team to more efficiently manage all approved vendors within a centralized platform and also allows others within your organization to view who your approved suppliers are.

New Ratings Functionality 

With Warm Commerce, your member profile includes the ability to rate your suppliers on key performance criteria. These ratings are numeric ratings, there are no reviews, it is anonymous  and uses the same 5-star ratings you are probably familiar with. 

Whenever you search for a current or potential supplier you can then see their aggregate rating and Net Promoter Score. In addition, anyone in your organization can receive requests from Suppliers to rate them and can then see the supplier’s industry user ratings in the search results and in the supplier profiles. 


Improved Warm Connections  

With the improved Warm Connection functionality, you can see more information associated to your suppliers sales representatives including their direct contact info, LinkedIn and other social media links, photo and more. 

In addition, you and your personnel within you company can create a profile so the suppliers you’ve connected with can directly contact you, etc.
