eRFX in E-Sourcing

Hi All,

a quick and hopefully straighforward question. When the eRFX's are sent from E-Sourcing via email to the invited suppliers along with the associated web link for them to submit responses is the Supplier Portal (SRM-SUS) needed for this?

    The answer is no. E-Sourcing has three basic URLs. One is for the buy-side (where you would create the RFx), one is for the sell-side (where the supplier would respond to the RFx), and the last is for supplier registration.

    So, the email has a URL that prompts the supplier to log into E-Sourcing (on the sell-side) and then navigates them to the specific RFx.

    Best Regards, Scott

    Hi Chris

    To strengthen the point i wouls like to add the following

    SUS is a component of SAP SRM and not SAP E-Sourcing

    Most of the times, customers would not opt for SRM application, incase they aregoing with the SAp E-Sourcing applciation as they have overlapping functionlaities

    Added, there is no standard integration offered b/w SAP E-Sourcing and SAP SRM, these interfaces need to be built incase the business is planning to integrate these 2 applications.

    eRFx is created in SAP E-Sourcing Buyer

    eRFx response is done from the SAP E-Sourcing Supplier portal

    Email and workbench alerts are sent to the supplier and the supplier responds to this with the link that they get in the mail
