Collecting important certificates and documents from your suppliers might get difficult, particularly if you are receiving the documentation through different communication channels as some suppliers send their documents via email, while others send them via post or fax. Handling supplier documentation collected from different channels also makes it difficult for you to keep track of all the documents’ validity.

Before ecratum, those documents were usually sent through different channels and most of them needed to be monitored against their expiration date which was getting challenging as a result of lacking a centralized system to handle supplier related documentation.
With ecratum, you request company related documentation from your suppliers through document tasks. When your supplier receives a document task from you, they respond to it either by uploading the requested document or stating that they do not have that document. One of the most advantageous of requesting company related documentation from your suppliers with ecratum, you do not need to have any follow-up over the received documentation when they are about to expire as ecratum automatically sends reminders to your suppliers about that their documents will expire soon.
