Abstract:Several firms have recognised the importance of embedding supplier portals and e-procurement systems in their processes. However, many companies are also unsure about how to apply such a system and which functionalities to select. This research gives insight in the current application of e-procurement systems and supplier portals in the market. An empirical snapshot is captured by conducting interviews with procurement employees of companies, as well as analysing online information. Through the snapshot, insights are provided into the companies’ objectives and functionalities of their supplier portals, as well as the accompanying risks and critical success factors for successful implementation. Through analysing the correlations between objectives and combined company functionalities, a framework is proposed. The framework suggests whenever having specific objectives for a supplier portal, certain accompanying functionalities should be selected. To apply the framework, a case company is used.
