How Your Business Can Automate Vendor Contracts & Onboarding

We all need help sometimes 

Business lingo these days is dominated by talk of the “rugged individualist” who takes on the world & manages to find a niche, research client requirements, create a product, market it successfully, wrangle investors & begin production, all by herself. 

But real business professionals know that running a business is a collaborative affair and requires a lot of assistance from people who source, research & supply you with both materials & assistance. These people, or organizations in most cases, are generally called vendors.

Take some of the giants in the entrepreneurial world, such as Amazon for instance, they require an entire host of manufacturers, retailers & couriers to function. Apple & other tech companies benefit from their vendors in a similar way. 

Vendors therefore are the backbone of any business & partnering with the right vendors is crucial to the success of your business. 

So how do businesses usually go about the process of bringing on a vendor?


Traditional Vendor Onboarding 

Suppose you’ve found the perfect vendor who checks all the boxes on your list. You’ve evaluated risk, trustworthiness, double-checked their track record & then you’ve reached out to them informally, but nothing is set in stone yet. 

What do you do next? 

Well, here’s how a lot of businesses would proceed. 


That looks simple enough, but if you look past the surface you’ll see that it’s got a lot of problems. 

Every single step in this manual & paper-based onboarding process is a pain point! 

From creating paper contracts and spending long hours negotiating over them, to manually verifying every painstaking detail in your potential vendor’s documents; this process is exceedingly cumbersome, involves too much paperwork, and entails massive costs

Businesses who work with a lot of vendors find this process even more crippling than usual and find themselves saddled with huge expenses and deals falling through because of how frustrating manual vendor onboarding can be.

Additionally, as a business, you’ve also got to consider the toll this takes on your vendors, since a slow & inefficient onboarding process leaves them with a lot of uncertainty and can also result in a strained relationship between you and your vendor. 

Now since you’re sufficiently convinced of how debilitating the traditional method of vendor onboarding & contracting can be, here’s an automated alternative!
