Slingshot Adds Support for Pre-Approved Travel Requests

Support for pre-approved Travel Requests has been added to Slingshot’s Travel Expense Management facility.  The Travel Request document includes the purpose of the trip, the approximate dates and a list of anticipated expenses.  The Travel Request is automatically routed to one or more approvers (assigned automatically).  The requestor receives eMail notification when the request is approved or, if approval is denied.  Requestors can view their Travel Requests by status in Slingshot’s Employee Portal (available 24x7).

The approved Travel Request document can be used for subsequent approval of one or more expense reports.  The user selects from a list of their open travel requests when entering an expense report.  The expense report is instantly approved provided its actual value is less than the balance on the Travel Request.  If the Expense Report exceeds this balance, it is automatically routed for approval.

Slingshot Advances RFx Processing

A number of significant RFx processing enhancements have been added to Slingshot’s Strategic Sourcing application.  Slingshot automates the process of creating, distributing, scoring and awarding RFx initiatives (e.g. Request for Proposal, Request for Quotation or Request for Information).  An RFx initiative can include a survey, a set of items to price and a set of required business terms.  Suppliers are invited to participate by Email.  A link in the Email takes the supplier to a series of forms on which the response is completed.  Each response is automatically “scored” based on both price and survey responses.  Responses are awarded by pulling them into a Contract or a Purchase Order. 

The following features have been added to the above capabilities:
