Maintaining a secure master vendor list

  • 1.  Maintaining a secure master vendor list

    Posted 05-16-2018 10:51 AM
    Looking to improve process and workflow around our master vendor list including any changes to vendor info, adding new vendors, changing wire/ACH instructions, updating wire/ACH instructions, etc. Can anyone describe what controls they have implemented? Does this include any third party add on software that integrates with SL? Thanks!

    ​We installed and are in the process of implemented Fastpath Audit Trail to track changes.

    I have developed a program called a trigger that records changes to the vendor table that my clients find important.  There is also a program called something like FastTrack that is similar, but is geared toward all tables in SL.

    We have a similar product called, Audit Manager which tracks changes similar to Fastpath's product. We have also customized the Vendor Maintenance screen so that only specific groups in Finance are able to enter and view the payment information.

    ​Thank you so much everyone for you input. It's so helpful to get a sense of any third party products that "plug" into SL and their capabilities. What I'm really looking for though is more a work flow for changes to vendor information, not necessarily just an audit trail. Do the products mentioned have that capability? Thanks!
