ITD Cementation faced several challenges in developing a self-registration portal for prospective vendors. They needed a solution that could capture relevant data and documents, validate email and mobile numbers, and support field-based workflow approval systems with sequential and parallel approval workflows for different departments. The portal also needed to integrate with SAP to create vendor codes and prevent duplicate vendor code creation.
To add to the complexity, the customer needed to ensure that relevant copies of certificates received from vendors were stored as per mandatory requirements and also validates MSME vendors, and captures the name of the proprietor as per PAN card and trade name as per trade license. They also need to have a role-based user ID creation and management system and an audit log available for every process. A dashboard/MIS needs to be in place to track requests generated, status, and user base pending cases, and audit reports to track turnaround time. The challenge requires an efficient and robust solution to be developed to ensure seamless vendor registration and management.
