Suppliers receive an e-mail notification when new/updated ratings for their company is available. E-mails will be sent separately for each buying company offering ratings, to all Performance Monitor users of the corresponding suppliers, who are assigned as customer responsible for this customer.
Suppliers can also receive e-mails including special alerts, if the new data contains at least one "traffic light" of a certain color (e.g. "red"). The traffic light color for activating the special alert e-mail depends on the definition defined from each buying company.
In addition, suppliers may receive reminder e-mails, if no user from the supplier has viewed the ratings for a certain time. The time interval and the amount of reminders can be determined by the customer.
