With an exclusively electronic process, there is of course the issue of security. To ensure this, there are a few things to keep in mind.
To ensure that the data is secure and not accessible to third parties, the data transfer should not take place via the public Internet. For this, companies and also suppliers are recommended to use a secured and encrypted VPN connection.
With conventional procurement, the problem is often that data or information is lost. This problem hardly ever occurs with e-procurement, thus ensuring permissible transmission.
To avoid conflicts and to be sure that both parties (buyer and seller) comply with their obligations, a legally compliant digital signature should be created.
