Pre-Qualification and Supplier Interfaces
A number of our customers use third-party companies to assess qualifications of their contractors. Information is gathered and assessed to determine a contractor’s capability, capacity, resources, management processes, and performance. Typical subject matter areas include financial capacity and surety, safety, work history, licensing, and other pertinent qualifications. Norris Brothers has received pre-qualification status from a number of third-party companies. These include Avetta, COMPASS, and Gatefeed. ISNetworld provides similar pre-certification exclusively for safety matters.
For increased efficiency, some customers use third-party companies or their own proprietary supplier interfaces to process purchase orders, invoices, and payments. Norris Brothers participates in these processes provided by third-party suppliers Ariba and Coupa as well as corporate online portals.
