PeopleSoft Raises the Bar with Supplier Rating System
New Solution Will Enable Companies to Evaluate and
Leverage Suppliers for Strategic Advantage

PeopleSoft, Inc. (Nasdaq: PSFT) today announced its Supplier Rating System, a new module in the company’s award-winning Supplier Relationship Management (SRM) solution. The new solution delivers unprecedented analytical capabilities that enable organisations to evaluate, monitor and control supplier performance across the enterprise.

“A supplier rating system will greatly assist companies in executing an SRM strategy,” said Carl Lehmann, Vice President of the META Group. “Supplier scorecards and analytics provide the basis for sound sourcing decisions – both in selecting a supplier for a specific contract or in identifying areas where supplier rationalisation or expansion would benefit the company as a whole.”

PeopleSoft’s Supplier Rating System will enable customers to create a consistent, repeatable methodology for business managers and executives to manage and measure supplier performance. Organisations will be able to capture data from across the enterprise and choose from more than eighty key performance indicators to set parameters, weight criteria and create supplier scorecards to measure performance in areas such as product quality, invoice accuracy, delivery reliability and price.

“With this solution we’re providing customers with the ability to drive consistency in supplier measurement and performance, giving the business a real view of what their supplier relationships are delivering,” said Theo Aroney, Asia Pacific Product Marketing Director of Supply Chain. “With this tool in place organisations can only improve their supplier accountability and performance.”

The PeopleSoft Supplier Rating System will be available in fourth quarter, 2002.
