Improved Vendor Management in the StudioNow Platform

We’re pleased to announce the release of our newest feature in the StudioNow Platform, Vendor Management. The release of Vendor Management introduces a major component into StudioNow that will more readily assist producers in the selection of Vendors for projects. The ability to more quickly find and narrow the field to select the right vendor candidates is expected to be a dramatic efficiency gain. In the near future, this feature will also serve up even more detailed vendor-provided information and continue to help users manage their vendor relationships.

Let's take a look at how this feature works.

Improved Vendor Management in the StudioNow Platform

We’re pleased to announce the release of our newest feature in the StudioNow Platform, Vendor Management. The release of Vendor Management introduces a major component into StudioNow that will more readily assist producers in the selection of Vendors for projects. The ability to more quickly find and narrow the field to select the right vendor candidates is expected to be a dramatic efficiency gain. In the near future, this feature will also serve up even more detailed vendor-provided information and continue to help users manage their vendor relationships.

Let's take a look at how this feature works.

 

You can now browse your vendors in two different ways.

The first way that you can access Vendor Management is through the stacked three-icon “hamburger” menu. This opens a standalone view that allows you to browse vendors independently of a specific project. 

The second way Vendor Management can be accessed is through the new 'Browse Vendors' button at the bottom of any RFP. Note that this will open Vendor Management in a modal window. 
 

You can now easily 'browse and add' vendors.

If you click the 'Browse Vendors" button on the RFP, you'll see all of the Vendor Management functionality from the standalone feature with the addition of a 'Add Vendor' button next to each vendor. This will add selected vendors to an RFP, and each of them will receive their invites when the RFP is sent. 

Note that when a new vendor is invited to the platform and a project, they will be automatically added to the owning company's list of vendors. 

 
 
 

You can now filter your list so you can quickly find relevant vendors.

You now have the ability to narrow down relevant vendors by company name, location, team member name, and core services. This filter gives you greater ability to select relevant vendor candidates for your specific projects.

“Core services” is a new field that represents the five broad competencies of vendors that are supported by StudioNow. These fields are production, post-production, animation, creative, and photography. 

Stay tuned for more Vendor Management functionality in the near future and as always, we welcome your feedback.
