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…

How is this relevant to DocBoss?

DocBoss enables you to load your VDR directly into the system rather than manually typing it. Not only does it save you time, it reduces the chance of typos and errors usually involved with manual inputting of data. DocBoss also updates your document register as documents are added, merged and eliminated.

And the previously-mentioned manufacturing record books? DocBoss helps you customize and create them with a few clicks of your mouse at the end of projects.

Rather than explaining it, it might be easier to show you….if you have an old VDR or other project documents you are able to share with us, we can set up a free online demo using your old project data to show you how DocBoss handles and processes it.

If you’re interested to set up a free, customized demo with your own data, drop us a line and let us know.
