Designed by Experience for Suppliers of:
Instrumentation and Valves
As project size increases, document workload increases, and margins drop. Give the clerical work to DocBoss, so you can focus on the things that make a difference.
Pumps & Compressors
Make sure your customers return key documents on time. Give project managers access to the dashboard for snapshots of every project in real time.
Tanks and Vessels
Track the responsible party for each document. Monitor internal turnaround to hit promised due dates. Generate MRB and mud book the day the equipment ships.
We also work with many other suppliers who have tagged equipment.
They see a combination of the issues above – generally depending on whether they have many (smaller) pieces of tagged equipment (actuators, HVAC), or fewer large pieces of equipment (MCC). Here are a few of the equipment lines being supplied by DocBoss customers.
- Motor Control Centers
- Variable Frequency Drives
- Buildings & Shelters
- Air Handling Units HVAC
- Electrical Bulks
- Analytical equipment.

What are Vendor Document Requirements?
Purchasers often define the type of documents that vendors must supply as part of the supply contract. The Vendor Document Requirements (or VDR) is the list of those document types. Each line typically includes a document code, description, and delivery timeline (e.g. 10 days after order), The VDR will also identify which codes should appear in document compilations like manufacturing record books, shipping dossiers and the like.
Note that while we use the term Vendor Document Requirements (VDR), this list goes by many names. Supplier Document Requirements (SDR), Seller Data and Drawing Requirements (SDDR), Vendor Data and Document Requirements (VDDR). Supplier Document Requirement List (SDRL), etc…
