GEP RFx module goes beyond the workflow basics. It uses a project management timeline feature to aid in managing more complicated workflows by segmenting (and delegating) tasks and stages. An interesting twist is how it uses approval tied to steps and not an overall RFx. This is a clever approach to bring other stakeholders such as internal subject matter experts (SMEs), legal, etc. into the process at a granular decision-making level without requiring their involvement more broadly. The toolset also has an elegant means of tracking supplier progress and event completion levels, helping buyers stay on top of their events and showing where they should be paying attention to areas that require their involvement.
