2. Vendors can view and download attachments in the Vendor Portal
Choose from recommended matches to speed up the onboarding process when inviting vendors in bulk
Upon importing a list of vendors to invite to Felix, advanced logic will search to see if they already exist in Felix Marketplace and give you the option of extending the invite to a suggested match. Not only does this avoid duplication of administration effort by vendors, they have also previously gone through the onboarding process and therefore are ready to respond quicker.
Invite vendors to Felix and be recommended with vendor matches that already exist in Felix Marketplace.
Email enhancements makes for clearer communication
Emails sent as part of the approvals workflow have been revamped to include information that allows for clearer communication to the receiver. Enhancements include RFQ names added to the subject line and in the email, and the addition of a hyperlink to the document needing to be reviewed. If an approval request is declined, a comment box directly in the body of the email allows for reasoning to be provided.
Enhancements to approval workflow emails allow for better understanding of the task at hand
