January 2016 Release

In the January 2016 release, Keelvar has added capabilities to make the event creation process more efficient, introduced document sharing and added an RFI Analysis section.

Here are the details.

Event Supporting Documents 

It is now possible to attach documents to your event. You can upload your documents from the 'Overview' page, and add a comment/description per file.

When bidders open the event, the 'Overview' page on their side will display the documents available for download.

RFI Question Attachments

Attachments can now be added to an RFI question. This allows users to reference one or more files as part of a question.

Improved Event Upload

Importing your event data is now more efficient. Once your CSV file is uploaded, select a column that serves as the unique identifier, and Sourcing Optimizer will map all the other columns with one click.

You can review the mappings and use the 'View Attribute' option for an attribute to change its type, visibility or whether it's a mandatory or optional column.

Time Duration Settings

Settings durations have been made easier to configure in minutes, hours, days and weeks. More sensible defaults have been set for RFQ and Auction events.

RFI Report And File Download

The new RFI Analysis section, under 'Analyze', provides a consolidated Excel download of all RFI responses. All file uploads as part of the responses can be download in a separate zip file.
