Request for Quotation (RFQ): An RFQ is a solicitation to potential suppliers to submit a proposal for specific products or services. It includes information such as quantities, delivery dates, and technical requirements, based on which suppliers prepare their offers.



Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP): APQP is a structured process for product and process development in the automotive industry. The goal is to ensure quality and meet customer requirements. The process consists of five phases: planning, product development, process development, product and process validation, and production launch and continuous improvement.


Complaint management

Complaint management involves handling customer complaints or claims regarding the quality of products or services. The objective is to promptly and effectively address complaints, increase customer satisfaction, and identify and rectify systematic causes of errors.



The Audit Module is a specialized tool for performing and managing audits according to the most common automotive standards (VDA, ISA, MAQMSR), which are widely used in the automotive industry. This software enables companies to efficiently check compliance requirements and ensure the quality of processes and products. It offers features such as checklist management, automatic reporting and real-time monitoring to streamline the audit process.


Registration & Self-Disclosure

Registration & Self-Disclosure refers to the initial stage of a supplier onboarding process. Inforum facilitates the onboarding of new suppliers. After registration, the self-disclosure process takes place. This involves a more detailed questionnaire that the supplier needs to complete. The questions can cover various aspects of the company, such as financial stability, quality assurance processes, environmental and social standards, technological capabilities, references, and more.


Certificate management

Certificate management in the supply chain context deals with the verification and management of supplier certificates. These documents are often critical for assessing supplier quality and reliability. Efficient management of these certificates enables continuous monitoring and can have an impact on supplier evaluation. By systematically monitoring certificates, companies can ensure that suppliers meet required standards, which minimizes risk and improves overall supply chain quality.


Supplier Cockpit

The Supplier Cockpit is a tool for visualizing and monitoring the performance of suppliers in real-time. It can include various key performance indicators such as delivery reliability, quality of delivered products, response time to inquiries, and more. It provides a centralized platform for supplier management, enabling the identification of trends, problem areas, and the initiation of targeted improvement measures.


Supplier evaluation

Supplier evaluation is a process in which the performance of suppliers is assessed based on various criteria such as quality, delivery reliability, price, and communication. This process aims to select suppliers, improve performance, and reduce risks in the supply chain.
