In particular in the case of complex supply chains, it is vital for your requirements planning department to be informed of upcoming goods consignments promptly and extensively. That is because unscheduled goods receipts or deliveries that cannot be handled or can only be processed with considerable effort due to false labels, barcodes or packaging cost valuable time and money.
With the electronic Advanced Shipping Notification (ASN) in SupplyOn, you know exactly what your supplier will deliver where, when and in what quantity. The advantage of the electronic process is obvious: When your supplier creates an Advanced Shipping Notification, it already contains information from the original order or the delivery instruction. That means your supplier only has to add a few more details relating to the packaging, volume and transportation. Well before the goods are received, your dispatchers therefore receive all the information they need to make the necessary preparations for receiving the goods.
|Prompt notice of imminent deliveries ensures more reliable planning and supply of goods.|
|Deviations can be identified in advance and responded to in good time.|
|Your supplier can create labels and barcodes at the touch of a button and attach them to the consignments. You optimize the goods receipt process because the barcodes can simply be scanned, eliminating the need for manual inputs.|
|The automated process helps avoid mistakes: Your supplier uses consistent data at all times in all its consignments.|
|Your supplier can use downstream processes, such as posting of quantities in transit, goods receipt confirmations and invoicing processes. Optimized processes mean your supplier has complete transparency on its deliveries and can reduce costs long term.|
You can use SupplyOn to map the Advanced Shipping Notification process with suppliers who have an EDI system, as well as suppliers who use the Web frontend of SupplyOn – i.e. regardless of their size or the order volume.
