    What is the single creditor model?

    The single creditor model enables you to have just one creditor for orders from various providers on Unite, namely Unite Financial Services GmbH, or UFS for short. This means you can work with many different providers while keeping your business processes lean and efficient. You can procure a wide range of products without overburdening your accounts department since you receive standardised invoices from UFS on behalf of your various providers. What’s more, you still remain in direct touch with your individual providers.

    The single creditor model is available to all buyers whose ERP/e-procurement system is linked to Unite via an API interface. This means that buyers using ERP/e-procurement systems such as SAP Ariba, BeNeering or Opus Capita can use the single creditor model and only need to maintain one creditor for their purchases on Unite.

    If you do not know whether your company uses an ERP system for procurement, please speak with your purchasing manager. Unite currently works with these e-procurement partners, with more to follow.
