How do the suppliers see the Handi Service?

The suppliers can use a supplier portal, which includes the following:

  • Catalogue maintenance functions
  • Order viewing
  • Invoicing facility (excl. private persons)
  • Invoice phase monitoring
  • Interaction with the customer, including price and availability queries

Suppliers also have technical opportunities for integrating with the service as described below:

  • a PunchOut interface to the supplier’s online store
  • delivering an order message to the supplier’s sales system, delivering an order by email to an address mutually agreed upon.

User support for the Handi Service

The accounting unit notifies Palkeet of any new suppliers. Palkeet is responsible for the supplier register maintenance operations and the Handi service. Palkeet is responsible for the user support provided to suppliers.

Supplier registration for the Handi Service

Palkeet invites suppliers to register for the Handi Service supplier portal, at the request of the accounting units. The supplier must provide the customer agency’s contact person with an email address to which Palkeet then sends the login link for the supplier portal. After receiving the registration link, the new supplier must enter the requested information on their company and users. The Services Centre activates and approves the supplier as a portal user. The login link in the portal invite will remain valid for 96 hours. If the link has expired, Palkeet can send a new link by request.

Suppliers already registered for the portal can log in directly via the link.

Log in to the supplier portal.

Product catalogues

TSuppliers can submit online product catalogues in the Handi Service:

  • by supplying an Excel product catalogue template to the customer agency,
  • by means of an external product catalogue, i.e. PunchOut interface, or
  • by maintaining the product catalogue in the supplier portal.

The construction of a new PunchOut/interface is started by setting up a launching meeting with the Services Centre, supplier, and the accounting unit.

Monitoring and support of the invoice automation

Palkeet is responsible for the automation related to government invoice processing, and the related monitoring. If an invoice is not automatically allocated to an order or contract, the Services Centre will find out why. If the invoice contains errors or insufficient information, Palkeet contacts the supplier directly to correct the errors.

Invoice requirements:

  • To facilitate invoice automation, invoices must always contain the government order number or the contract number.
