I’m responsible for online marketing at SupplyOn and I thus care, among other things, for the further development of this blog.

Bosch provides suppliers with a comprehensive view of their invoice status, independent of the invoicing channel

Matching themes: eInvoicing, Purchase to Pay

With the Finance Portal, Bosch suppliers can see the status of all their invoices, no matter which channel they used to issue them
With the Finance Portal, Bosch suppliers can see the status of all their invoices, no matter which channel they used to issue them

The Bosch Group receives its suppliers’ invoices through many different channels, from paper to eInvoicing. Until recently, however, suppliers could obtain an overview of the processing status only for electronically sent invoices. As a result, in addition to balance confirmations or reminders, general inquiries about payment dates or the status of an invoice began to accumulate. For this reason, Bosch, together with SupplyOn, developed a Finance Portal that provides suppliers with a comprehensive view of the processing status regardless of the invoice channel. A request channel in the Finance Portal, which is integrated with other Bosch tools, further reduces internal administrative work and increases the service level. Read more

Airbus harmonizes its global procurement processes with AirSupply

Matching themes: Aerospace, AirSupply, procurement

Airbus harmonized its global procurement processes with a very innovative, highly comprehensive initiative featuring AirSupply - and well-deserved earned a nomination for the German Logistics Award 2019
Airbus harmonized its global procurement processes with a innovative, highly comprehensive initiative featuring AirSupply, earning a well-deserved nomination for the German Logistics Award

The construction of an aircraft is preceded by a highly complex, sophisticated procurement process. Almost every aircraft at Airbus is unique – and consists of around one million individual parts. Managing this is a challenge in itself. It becomes even more complex when, as at Airbus, almost a dozen locations in Europe and Canada coordinate operational purchasing.

In order to act more efficiently, Airbus has developed a four-pillar model in which AirSupply from SupplyOn plays a key role. For the impressive results of this digital transformation, Airbus was selected as one of three finalists of the German Logistics Award 2019. Read more

Cool music comes out of the speakers. And yet concentrated silence reigns. Many colleagues sit around the large conference table – working student next to manager, product developer next to consultant next to support staff. Everyone is engrossed in their screens, clicking and typing. In between a chat, some jokes or nibbling at sweets. But never do they lose sight of their goal: Finding a bug. Read more
