Agency Vendor Portal

The complete platform to recruit and manage diverse suppliers.

Developed by demand from clients and the industry, PPS partnered with CVM Solutions to develop a vendor portal specifically for the advertising agency. PPS uses its experience in managing the software implementation projects for its clients and enhancing the software solutions of the service providers by customizing the registration, search and reporting for the agency environment.

PPS understands the creative services vendor and offers a web-based solutions- that streamlines the search process for agency staff. Capturing vendor demographics information and diversityclassification, the Agency Vendor Portal is the repository for vendors that service the advertising, communications, marketing and media industries.

What makes the Agency Vendor Portal unique from its competitors is the category specific questions contained in the vendor profile. PPS collected the questions that internal staff ask vendor in the industry to determine their capabilities and brings that information to you through the vendor portal.

Agencies can have their vendor data loaded and flagged for their teams. This data will be protected and viewed only by your agency staff. You also have the capability of branding your sourcing portal. This is just another added feature of the agency vendor portal.

Vendors register their capabilities at no charge and agencies can subscribe to the portal for a minimal monthly service fee. Other adhoc services are also available, including:

  • Outreach Capabilities – Easy supplier communication and compliance monitoring
  • Archiving – Permanent access to supplier information
