Use Case Summary
A digital, automated repository of product enhancements and changes – single version of the truth – enables constituents on the business to have a common and timely view. Procurement is thus tied into the typical Change Order process (ECNs) and specification management in a way that enables optimal efficiency both in terms of cost and of speed.
