Supplier Performance

You can now explicitly link Events to Suppliers in the Qualio platform to simplify workflows and have robust, automated reporting and analytics, including for supplier performance monitoring and critical procurement decisions.

Event templates will now have a configurable field named “Suppliers.” If the field is marked as “visible,” the events under that template will include the supplier lookup as part of their Event Properties area

Event owners can then link one or more suppliers with an issue of that type. Once linked, supplier tags are clickable, allowing users to navigate from the event to the supplier’s profile.
