Via the web-based system eDocs, the exchange of purchasing documents (e.g. inquiries, purchase orders, contracts) is now paperless. Purchasing transactions can be completed in much less time and are more economical. Access to documents is guaranteed by systems technology and is clearly documented. eDocs ensures legally compliant processing of commercial business transactions, which is equivalent to the conventional exchange of business documents. All purchasing documents and transactions sent via eDocs are to be considered as legally binding declarations of intent for you and for Daimler, without a signature.
Registering for eDocs
Before you can access eDocs, a signed master agreement is required. You can download the agreement document via the Daimler Supplier Portal and thereby initiate your registration for eDocs. The steps are described below.
Step two: send the agreement
Send the scanned document to email@example.com with the subject "eDocs registration" and the name of your eDocs administrator. You should already have access to the Daimler Supplier Portal (User ID). The administrator is responsible for the continued user administration within your company. You can use the following sample email as a template:
Sample email for eDocs registration
Subject: eDocs Registration for supplier number XXXXXXXX
Attached is the signed master agreement for supplier number xxxxxxxx.

Step three: approval for eDocs use
The data you enter will be checked and approved. If necessary, an application may have to be amended. As an applicant, you will receive a confirmation email for the use of eDocs and your specified administrator will receive the administration rights for eDocs within your company.
Additional eDocs users
Additional users can also use eDocs. To do this, either the user must apply for the app or the administrator can assign it. See "Request app".
An additional or new eDocs Administrator can be registered by the current eDocs Admin. Alternatively, you can fill out the document and send it to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
