PIM Supplier Profile

It is an essential best practice to update your organization's profile regularly, so your Buyers can stay aware of any changes within your company. Buyers constantly assess their Suppliers when doing business, which means other competitors are always present in the market, therefore, keeping your profile up to date and attractive helps your organization stand out from other Suppliers in the market when Buyers are looking for specific capabilities. 


In order to edit your organization's profile, you must have the Application Administrator role in PIM. Any user of your organization subscribed to PIM, can view your organization's profile. 


None of the fields in your profile are required, however, the more completed fields, the higher your completeness score. Your completeness score reflects how much information you provided in your profile. Your Supplier Profile score can make you highly attractive to Buyers of the Exostar community. Buyers may use this profile to assess which suppliers to do business with, or which Supplier to assess further as prospective partners. As a helpful hint, keep your profile as up to date as possible and review it quarterly.
