eMarketplaces: why Suppliers should get involved

25th September 2017

Here at Science Warehouse, we work with our Supplier Community so that they get the best out of the eMarketplace, but what exactly are these benefits?


Suppliers can easily upload and maintain their catalogues on the Science Warehouse eMarketplace.

All orders from the same Buyer go through a single and controlled channel, meaning that errors are reduced and both compliance and efficiency are increased. This then helps alleviate any maverick orders which could result in errors.


Our Catalogue solution is multi-tenanted which means that you benefit from updates in technology as they are released and also means that you only need to maintain product information across Buyers once.

The electronic approval workflow, results in users having full sight of their orders, while digital authorisation means written signatures are no longer required. This means Suppliers can sell quicker, effectively saving time for both parties.

Science Warehouse’s Suppliers can receive orders and invoices seamlessly through the use of cXML. Orders are integrated into your back office system so that you don’t have to manually re-key the information. Touchless entry of your order results in fewer rejections, quicker payment and ultimately saves money.


Suppliers have more control over their catalogues as products and pricing are maintained by the Supplier (not manually keyed by Buyers), resulting in a significant reduction in errors and downstream invoice matching issues.


Science Warehouse provides advanced insights on your eMarketplace performance, from trends to market share, so Suppliers can gain a competitive edge.

We are continuously improving our reporting functionality to support our Supplier community.
