What is Customer & Vendor Setup?

Customer & Vendor Setup processes are triggered when sales (customer setups) or procurement (vendor setups) staff members send requests to master data management employees for new customers/vendors to be added to company systems. Once the request has been received, master data staff members validate all required information and check to make sure that the customer/vendor is not already setup in the system. Once all the requisite information has been input, the requestor (sales or procurement staff) is asked to do a final pass to verify the information. This process may also include adjustments to existing vendor or customer accounts.
