An Overview of the Newest Features and Improvements in the Latest Build of Supplier Discovery


On December 11, 2012, a major upgrade to the Supplier Discovery application became available. This upgrade brings a number of exciting features related to OEM discovery searches, and is immediately available to all Supplier Discovery users.

Process Fit Information Now Available For All Top 10 Suppliers in Discovery Searches

With this update, process fit information is now available for all top 10 suppliers in OEM discovery search results, rather than just the top supplier. This change will now allow you to quickly understand how the scores for each of the suppliers were calculated, along with the ability to see whether a specific supplier has the exact process you requested or a similar process.

After running a discovery search, click within the box surrounding the supplier name to view the process fit information for that specific supplier.
