Can we link the Uppler solution directly with an internal software ERP or CRM used in our company ?
Our solution has been thought for being connected to additional tools, which already exist into your company. The objective is really to facilitate all-around your business or inside your company.
We will be able to develop connectors in order to connect your external tools and the one from your vendors. And we also give you the possibility to do it on your own by giving you access to a complete documentation about our API.
How the catalog is structured in the Uppler solution ?
The Uppler solution offers the best system for classifying and categorizing products on a marketplace or on an e-procurement platform. We use a PIM (product information management) to centralize and manage all data around products.
As soon as you would import products inside our platform they will be automatically classified according to categories, properties, delivery methods, taxes, and other information you would like to link your products to.
How many vendors and buyers can we integrate into the Uppler solution (marketplace or e-procurement) ?
The Uppler solution does not limit the number of sellers and buyers that could be registered on the platform neither technical nor financial. The only limit is the one coming from the server. If you get too much traffic, we will recommend you go for a server with more capacity (with more space) and not slow down the website.
Is it possible to configure negotiated prices in the Uppler e-procurement platform ?
We anticipated that some vendors could propose preferred prices for some buyers (a question of fidelity for example) and so, offer on the platform a new feature for creating specific contracts between sellers and buyers.
