What is Vendor Onboarding?

As organizations gather information about potential vendors and suppliers, the vetting and validation process is crucial. Organizations must evaluate the third parties’ capabilities as well as their risk levels before they take them on. The supplier onboarding process builds the foundation of lasting business relationships with third parties.

The vendor onboarding process can be a lengthy process made up of complex tasks that span across the enterprise, requiring input, review, and approvals from multiple departments. However, following a vendor onboarding template enables you to seamlessly meet both business needs and security and compliance requirements.

What Are the Benefits of a Supplier Onboarding Checklist?

When various departments are involved in the onboarding process, it can be laborious to develop efficient workflows and communication. Finance works on budgetary matters, compliance checks that relevant requirements are met, and IT conducts an in-depth technical review of the vendor’s suitability. Oftentimes, two or more departments are collecting similar or overlapping information. Vendor onboarding checklists outline the critical areas and risks that organizations need to evaluate as they take on new third parties.

Implementing a vendor onboarding process ensures that all  important questions are top of mind throughout the onboarding process. What business objective does this vendor help achieve? Is there already have a vendor performing these services? Does the vendor align with  internal policies and meet external regulations? What sensitive information will the vendor access? Automating the vendor onboarding process enables organizations to seamlessly identify the potential risks a vendor may have, and take the appropriate steps for remediation.
