26 Business Processes Offline Analysis
Provides capabilities for offline analysis by allowing offline event analysis and upload capabilities Usability & Performance Enhancements Provides several usability and performance enhancements to the analysis and awarding of events. More bids can be viewed on the analysis pages and the award and analysis pages have been separated to allow for separation of duties New Next Line & Previous Line Options in event Creation & Analyzing Events Components Segregation of Duties Split Bid Analysis introduces the ability to group bid factors separately to support the segregation of duties within an organization and can be enabled during Event Collaboration and Analysis Collaboration For example, organizations may want one bid factor group to contain item information that business users can review and another financial users bid factor group that can review price, supplier’s credit score, and shipping costs. Segregation of duties with the configurable bid factor groups prevents technical users from having access to financial data and vice versa, and it ensures that technical components are evaluated before cost components. Routing to collaborators can be either parallel or sequential

27 Business Processes Usability & Performance Enhancements – View more bids and Analysis page separated from Award page

28 Business Processes Collaborator Comments During Analysis
