Jointly being creative: the Design Thinking workshop develops a completely new solution approach from the customer’s perspective

“How do we generate enthusiasm among our customers?” This is the key question on Sabine Moudilou’s mind. As Manager Supplier Quality at SupplyOn, she is currently looking into the potential for a new audit management solution. For her, this is about more than optimally meeting customer needs. More than covering as many market requirements as possible in a new solution. It is about the “Wow” factor. I.e. something that users themselves may not even have thought of — but that noticeably improves their daily workflow in one fell swoop. Read more

Event summary of three automotive conferences in May 2022: insights into solving pressing industry challenges

Due to the pandemic, numerous important conferences had to be postponed over the last two years – this meant that SupplyOn was represented as an exhibitor at three important automotive conferences in the first half of May.

Inbound transports: Boost transparency and efficiency with fully automated transport notification

Matching themes: Inbound Supply Chain, transport management

Fully automated transport notification helps to create the visibility needed to avoid costly production downtimes
Fully automated transport notification helps to create the visibility needed to avoid costly production downtimes

The sharp rise in energy prices has a direct impact on transport costs. Especially now, it is extremely important to exploit all available savings potential. Bundling of transports, high utilization of loading capacities and timely transport notifications are important levers to keep the price explosion under control. In addition, reduced inventories demand secure, monitored transport handling to prevent delays from leading to costly production losses.

This means logistics managers need not only immediate, i.e. real-time, information about delays during transport. Moreover, they need quick answers to questions such as: “Which materials are affected by the delay?” Or: “What was damaged during transport?” Read more
