For step 3, you’ll need to import a Bill of Materials into the Trade Service Live platform from your estimating system or fabrication software.

From there you can manage your items to prepare for sending purchase orders. This video will show you how to Import your BOM. How to access the procurement capabilities of Supplier Xchange: Supplier Xchange for procurement is a feature of TRA-SER, included with most Trimble estimating softwares.
