Authentication and Security for E-Procurement Integration
Because so much of the e-procurement site’s business is devoted to streamlining business and supply chain processes, they are in a particular position to benefit from website integration.
One of the major concerns of every e-procurement site is security. Since you’re dealing with so many vendors and clients, a lax security procedure can have devastating results. Some general security integration guidelines to adhere to are as follows: make sure your server authenticates all documents and requests it receives. Additionally, encrypt any data you transmit from your internal system or e-procurement system. Clarity can help maintain these security standards.
