Selection of the Country of Origin (COO) is now presented in the Request for Quote (RFQ) templates for the user to complete. Supplier users can select multiple COOs from the LevaData application user interface.
Suppliers can also provide input via a dropdown list of values in Excel which can be uploaded, thereby reducing the chances of typos and errors.
Regardless of which method one chooses to use, COO is important, and suppliers should want to input this data for their parts. In the LevaData Platform, COO is now a required input field for suppliers on all RFX templates, and it serves to inform critical data in the Cost Optimizer to properly calculate Supply Risk.
