“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
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. A common theme running through all three events was the current challenges facing the industry, above all the dramatic supply bottlenecks and the question of how to make supply chains resilient, as well as the climate crisis and the issue of how to achieve sustainable and CO2-neutral production in the future.

Just like last time, we had several surprises for our audience. For the first time, we had a speaker on board from the customer side who presented ZF Friedrichshafen‘s digitalization strategy for feasibility studies in the sourcing process. Secondly, in two video clips, we revealed a potential expansion of the existing service portfolio on which our product managers are currently consulting. But first things first.

The Supply Chain Due Diligence Act, commonly referred to as the Supply Chain Act for short, puts companies under pressure to act: from January 1, 2023, all companies in Germany with more than 3,000 employees will be co-responsible for ensuring that human rights are respected in their supply chain. Worldwide, 100 million people are affected by modern slavery, almost 80 percent of whom are children. The law aims to give these people a better future and contains a catalog of eleven internationally recognized human rights conventions. Read more

On April 28, we welcomed keen young girls to SupplyOn as a first-time participant of Girls’ Day 2022. Girls’ Day is a nationwide campaign in Germany in which schoolgirls from the 5th grade onwards have the opportunity to get a first-hand experience of interesting professions in mathematics, information technology, natural sciences and technology (MINT).
Along with many other organizations and companies, we at SupplyOn opened our doors to give girls an insight into the versatile occupational field of IT and to spark their enthusiasm for it. The response was overwhelming: within a very short time, all the places were booked up. Read more
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
Efficient, intelligent control of loading and unloading processes offers great potential for savings.
