What is a Supplier Database?

A supplier database is a list of service, product or materials providers who can fulfill orders quickly. The database allows companies to search for suppliers across multiple tiers. 

For example, a supplier database with thousands or millions of suppliers is a powerful tool for logistics management because it allows users to search for suppliers by country, region, equipment type, service — or other specific criteria — in just a few clicks. A detailed database of suppliers is especially helpful if a company decides to diversify its product line or shift production. Learn more about GEP’s supplier vendor management software solutions.
