With a quote request it is of course about the desired products and / or services. To support this, these questions can be formed in 3 different information streams:
Products and services that are part of your quotation request can be defined here. The supplier must specify a price per product.
It may be that extensive information must be supplied by the supplier. This can be requested from the supplier by means of required documents. The supplier is then asked to provide documents.
You can setup up surveys that the supplies must complete. VendorLink then calculates a score and suppliers can easily be compared. Surveys are explained in Lesson 4.
All of the above can be part of the RFx together.
The products that you specify here are the products and/or services that must actually be purchased and for which the supplier must state a price. The following fields can be defined:
|Description of product or service||Describe the product and/or service so that it is clear to the supplier what must be delivered. Possibly with product ID's.|
|Extended specification||An additional explanation or specification can be included here. If necessary. For example, refer to document that you have uploaded.|
|Unit||Unit on which the supplier must enter the price.|
|Quantity||The quantity that will be taken. Together with the unit, this determines the total of the quotation request.|
Each RFx can contain multiple products/services
Tip: if there are extensive specifications, you can upload it with a document in the detail screen and refer to it in the product description.
When the invited suppliers must provide documentation, this can be done in the RFx via required documents. You can also provide a template that suppliers can download, fill in and upload.
