In principle, the user can rely on the selection criteria specified in a predefined list of criteria their vendor(s) should meet. The user can remove the criteria which they find unimportant, add others which they believe are missing from the stock list or simply, create other lists to suit their specific selection contexts. When the lists have been compiled and the criteria weighted, the user can now create a candidate vendor list and assess the specific vendors against the criteria specified earlier. The results generated in the app enable the user to compare the scores achieved by vendors and guide them to make well-informed decisions in the sourcing process.
With its flexible criteria management component, the application may very well be adopted for any multi-criteria selection context, for example, when searching for some property, hiring a new co-worker, or when buying a more complex piece of equipment.
