As with most of my work with Co-Exprise, our design process revolved around rapid iterations on a high-fidelity prototype, tested internally with our market-marking team as well as with customer beta-testers. The prototype was also used for live demos by our marketing team.
Custom Layout Tools
Each row of the form can contain up to three form elements, allowing for high data-density technical forms for manufacturing parts. Components can be re-ordered by drag-and-drop, and layout tools appear above the element on hover.
For checkbox and radio-button style questions, contextual questions can be added to show up depending on the supplier’s response.
Weighting & Scoring
Weighting & scoring controls allow the system to provide high-level grading for supplier responses. This control can be enabled or disabled for each section. Buyers can manually enter scores for non-quantitive fields.
Calculated fields generate rolled-up values from other fields, with a full range of mathematical capabilities. This allows for powerful multi-year and “net present value” calculations.
