You can invite this company by e-mail. This means that the subcontractor will receive an automatically generated invitation to register in ProductXchange. Once the subcontractor has registered in our system, they will be able to open the data deliverables and start adding data to the project.
Click on Invite Company:
Fill in the company's e-mail and select the product filters you wish to assign. Click Next:
You can also set deadlines the same way as if the company was registered in ProductXchange. Click Next:
Click Send when finished:
The subcontractor will then be invited to register in coBuilderDeliver and once they register, they can view your data requirements and start delivering the requested information to the project.
