Intuitive use, intelligent interactions, clear dashboards and effective navigation: Material Design makes software user-friendly

Design is subject to constant change and causes controversial discussions. It is generally a debatable topic, as there are abundant opinions about it. As we all know, we all have different tastes.

SupplyOn, too, has taken up this challenge and embarked on a new era: introducing Material Design in the development of new business services requires all stakeholders to rethink, demands new strategies and, above all, clear communication. Read more

Usability and product design at SupplyOn – it is all about our users

Matching themes: Product Design, UI, Usability, UX

Just like a house, a software must be constantly brought up to date over the years. Amidst all the technical innovations, it is important not to lose sight of the user in this process.
Be it a new function, an extension or a completely new solution: It is always important to keep the user in mind and the usability of the software in mind.

This year we are celebrating a fantastic anniversary: 20 years of SupplyOn. That also means 20 years of experience in supply chain and 20 years of technology. What’s more, there are still a large number of employees who have been with us right from the start. A success story to be proud of.

During all this time, SupplyOn has continuously extended, enhanced and updated its platform. It’s like a house: at some point you simply have to replace the windows or renew the roof. Otherwise things might get a bit uncomfortable. Read more
