New feature: Supplier Discovery

EPIM JQS now accomodates users to search, identify, and invite/request companies to register in the service from the service itself. Once a company has been found, a user with permission to invite should only specify recipient (mandatory), and then has the option to provide a custom message to the recipient(s).

The following tabs are available under Supplier Search and/or company pages:

Similar Suppliers
On a supplier's Home Page, there is now a tab called "Similar Suppliers" which contains any similar suppliers (algorithmic assessment). Similarity is currently an assessment of traits such as, but not limited to, company offerings (products and/or services), approximate comparison of size, employee numbers, and financial metric(s).

Potential Suppliers (Operator feature)
This tab contains companies which have been identified as potential suppliers to be invitied to, and registered in, the service. Companies are identified through one or several validated third party integrations.

Invited Suppliers (Operator feature)
Once a potential supplier has been invited by a user, this company is listed under this tab. Once or if an invited company has been registered in the service, its status will change from "invited" to "active".

New feature: Newsfeed 2.0

All companies in EPIM JQS have access to parsed newsfeed items from a current defined index of 40+ defined sources (supplemented by Google Programmable Search Engine, formerly known as Google Custom Search and Google Co-op).
The current version of the newsfeed feature relies on "exact match" of a company's name and/or legal entity name. Sources are highlighted in the user interface accompanied by a timestamp for each item.
