Errors in what look like simple calculations can be very embarrassing, if not dangerously expensive. Percentages that don't add up to 100, anyone?
Calculating total weighted scores for a deeply nested, hierarchically structured RFP in a spreadsheet is notoriously error prone. Spreadsheets are two dimensional, and formulas for dealing with nested subsections are very brittle. With multiple weighting and scoring sets the risk of error is even greater.
SupplierSelect takes care of the arithmetic for you:
- Comparative scoring metrics generated on the fly, by section, question, weighted or unweighted
- Drill down charts in-built
- Export scores in pivot table friendly format for offline spreadsheet analysis
