Latest version of SupplierPortal - enhanced usability and further analytical capability

Questionnaire_Analysis_-_May_15The latest SupplierPortal release enhances the user experience and provides yet more analytical capability

Why the new version?

The latest release of SupplierPortal, as with all of our software development, is based on listening carefully to our client’s needs and drawing on our wide experience of the market.

This release adds more analytical capability and further enhances the user experience throughout the whole solution, without compromising our focus on simplicity and usability.

What has been added?

• Review and validate your Supplier’s information using the new audit function. Suppliers can be assigned to different auditors e.g. internal or third party, for audit against multiple bespoke audit templates.

• Monitor any potential Supplier non-compliance through the expired documents area. This helps to identify any risks that may be associated with expiring or expired Supplier information.

• Evaluate your Supplier’s performance simply using the downloadable PDF reports that include any flagged responses.

• Manage your Supplier relationships by recording the details of the internal Account manager, the key Supplier contact and any relationship notes. These fields can be easily searched in the supplier tab.
