Felix gives you the ability to view the progress of each vendor's response to your RFQ in real-time. Before the quoting period closes, you can send a reminder to all vendors that have not yet submitted their pricing.
To track a vendor's quoting progress:
The Status column tracks if a vendor has Quoted the service, Viewed the request, and saved a quote but not yet submitted it if they are Unavailable to quote this service, or Pending if they have not yet provided a quote response.
The Progress column will show if a vendor has Opened and viewed the package, if they have Downloaded the documents attached to the package, or if they have Started Quoting.
