Comprehensive, accessible supplier ratings

It has never been easier to create and manage supplier approvals and ratings. With TIPQA™, you can create a supplier scorecard that is accessible throughout your organization. With our system, delivery, nonconformance and corrective action results are all blended together to provide a comprehensive supplier rating.

Supplier approvals can be sent to the ERP system at the part, commodity or supplier level (if the ERP system supports this level of differentiation). In addition, supplier approval can be managed at the business unit or master business unit level to support supplier cost reduction and consolidation initiatives.

TIPQA™ has a rich feature set that ensures effective supplier rating and approval management.
