--  Dashboard -- a new add-on module that provides graphical trends of
    aggregate supplier performance and simplifies the process for monitoring
    key performance indicators (KPI).
    
--  Supply Team Dimension -- an enhancement to the core data model that
    allows rapid monitoring and analysis of team or department-specific
    information to proactively manage a key subset of suppliers.
