Vendor Portal

Streamline vendor management

Onboard and collaborate with vendors in one central hub

Companies today are more extended than ever — and employees often work day in and day out with a broad range of contractors, vendors and suppliers. But when you work outside of traditional corporate boundaries, it's easy for content to become fragmented and even lost across different personal hard drives, file shares and email attachments. That's where Box comes in. With Box, you get a solution where teams can easily and securely collaborate with vendors in one central, online hub. Contracts, design specs, inventory docs  and other key files are easily accessible from any device so you can power your business seamlessly in the cloud. 

Streamline vendor collaboration

Get the most out of your vendor relationships with seamless collaboration on Box. Use Box Relay to automate repeatable workflows like vendor onboarding and offboarding. 

Boost productivity

Give employees and vendors access to the information they need, when they need it, so they don't have to waste time searching for the right file.  

Lock in your security

Use granular permission controls and advanced security and compliance features to protect your content. Leverage Box Governance to classify sensitive files and ensure all vendor content is properly retained. 

“The security aspect is a major consideration for us, but also for our partners and suppliers. We use the cloud service to create one place to go. You get access to all the information you need, including invoices.”

— Fritz Wetschnig, CISO, Flex
