Do most supplier site attributes need to be populated?
SummaryNo. For most attributes, a value is only needed if business with the supplier needs to deviate from standard policy.
Supplier site stores business terms and controls that govern how procure to pay transactions are executed with the supplier, like purchase orders and invoices. Entering supplier site values for all spend authorized suppliers would be a maintenance nightmare.
So, what does cloud offer? In cloud, the terms and controls can be managed at a business unit or global level to enforce a standard procure to pay business process using setup pages ‘Configure Procurement Business Function’, ‘Manage Invoice Options’, ‘Manage Purchasing Line Types’ and ‘Manage Receiving Parameters’.
