I have a requirement in SRM (srm_server 7.0) that suppliers will login to our SRM system (SRM portal) and create RFx responses or join live auctions.
I've been searching SDN for SUS (supplier self services) and Supplier Collaboration components. But still i'm a bit confused..
What i understand from SUS is; it is a component in SRM and you can use SUS in service management or plan driven procurement.
You create PR's in MM, then push these PR's to SRM, convert them to PO in SRM. After that suppliers will create PO responses.
, confirmations.. etc.
What i understand from Supplier Collaboration is; it as an add-on to SRM and suppliers can create RFx responses or join live auctions.. etc.
So if i would like the suppliers join to my SRM Portal and create RFx responses and join auctions,do i need to install and configure supplier collaboration ? or will SRM - SUS be enough ?
Can you please guide.. Thanks in advance..
