Supplier Suggestion Change Request – Nexteer Users

← Supplier Learning Center

SUPPLIER SUGGESTION CHANGE REQUEST APPLICATION

The supplier is responsible for submitting suggestions/change requests within Intelex for their location. Once they have submitted the suggestion/change request an email will go out to the selected AQE/SQE for review. The buyer will also be notified that a suggestion/change request has been submitted but they will only have view capability.
