Collaboration

A normal contract life cycle involves hundreds of Buyer / Supplier connections across email, uploads, and phone calls. The 4 Links collaboration module make sense of this, providing a single online reference across your company. Chat forums, document drop boxes, online document libraries, records management, event schedulers, and other advanced tools are integrated into every site, project, contract and price book. Making collaboration a natural extension of supply interaction. Our smart CRM extends this connection even further, so every supplier can instantly map their staff to every project / contract and site, making access to you supply chain fully automated.

Strategic Sourcing

The 4 links Strategic sourcing suite is state of the art, from the moment you launch your ePortal you’ll access cost savings. Tendering and quotes flow via the integrated tender system, which supports three levels of tender evaluation. Work flows control sourcing cycles while our Contract Management suite provides full life cycle management. For even greater efficiency consider our catalogue system with its dynamic pricing features, extended budgeting and Purchase orders .

Compliance

Understanding and meeting your compliance risk obligations is a core 4Links feature. Our Compliance engine works at the earliest stages of your sourcing cycle; the pre-qualification module maps your suppliers product (UNSPC), and contingent labour, while our automated dashboard engages your suppliers minutes after they register on the ePortal seeking out insurances, work covers, trade certifies, providing an end do end solution that reduces the cost of compliance for all parties.
