>> orders and order confirmation - direct and in time
By placing an order in the ERP-System the supplier will be informed and receives the details via the "supplier portal". The supplier will be informed of the new order, by placing an order in ERP-System. The supplier get the details like the header or the positions from the supplier portal. All central functions like article, quantity or delivery date will be displayed. It is also possible to get the order via a manual export function.
The supplier creates the order confirmation and announces the availability of the shipment and the delivery date. Changes of the original order (from the order confirmation) with a defined workflow can be displayed.
Event monitor or how to avoid non-value-adding activities in purchase
“Any human activity that absorbs resources but creates no value...” will be defined as non-value-adding activity (Wallace J. Hopp). Via an eveent monitor
The event monitor defines which routine activity - e.g. the manual shipment from an order, a reminder for an order confirmation or a warning for shipment delay - will be handled within the supplier portal automatically. The suppliers, purchasers or logistics expert will be informed automatically and will be requested to proceed to the next step.
Further important data like the delivery progress can be directly adjusted within the supplier portal.
Estimated time of departure and the estimated time of arrival can be adjusted as well. In this way the customer is able to display the status of the delivery anytime. This is also very important for the “Dock & Yard Management”.
The order and the handling of the order confirmation includes the connection of external logistic service providers. Transportation orders will be booked and confirmed.
