ecratum provides you with a new feature that enables your suppliers to send you files without logging in to ecratum or having an ecratum account and then, you will be able to match those files with their respecting tasks. By using the Upload by Email feature, you will have the opportunity to increase the collaboration with your suppliers and have more efficient interactions with them.
When you start using Upload by Email, you will be given a special email address for your company and to be shared with your preferred suppliers. Once those suppliers receive that email address, they can simply send their files in PDF format to that email address without having to sign in to ecratum.
Alternatively you can activate supplier specific email adressess within each suppliers profile or provide the supplier with a link to an upload page. For both services the supplier does not need to login to ecratum.
After being sent the files from your suppliers, you can match those files with multiple tasks in your ecratum account. Similarly, you can match multiple tasks to a file. In addition, every user in your company account can forward the emails that contain files received from suppliers to the specific email address generated by ecratum for your company. The Upload by Email feature also makes it easier for you to upload documents on behalf of your suppliers.
