The aircraft supplier RUAG Aerostructures switched its ordering process to AirSupply. Simultaneously, the company extended it to include digital processes for forecasting and goods receipt. This allows RUAG Aerostructures to submit orders faster in bulk processing and to collaborate more efficiently with its suppliers on delivery dates and quantities. Read more
Traceability, transport optimization, goods receipt and inventory automation are top priorities for most logistics managers. Particularly in sectors where safety is crucial, such as aerospace, the rail industry or plant engineering, high legal requirements apply to the testing and documentation of the materials used. For this purpose, suppliers must hand over various documents, test protocols or certificates along with the material delivery. This documentation is usually either enclosed with the delivered parts in hard copy or sent to the buyer via e-mail.
Challenge: scattered and missing information
It is precisely these differing communication channels that pose major challenges for goods receipt. Read more
Imagine an intelligent solution for creating shipping documents that learns in the course of a few weeks which packaging rules are effective for which customer and which parts. It then applies them automatically when creating the ASN (Advance Shipping Notification) and thus relieves you of around half of your work. Even complex ASNs, whose creation often takes more than a quarter of an hour, can be created in less than 5 minutes in the future. Read more
The customized production of a commercial vehicle manufacturer resulted in many individual orders from suppliers that are difficult to plan. By using SupplyOn, the company was not only digitizing its collaboration with its suppliers, but also optimizing it: In addition to individual orders more plannable delivery forecasts were introduced. This was the starting signal for a completely digital end-to-end process—from purchasing to invoicing. Read more
Leonardo, a major aerospace, defence and security company, wanted to harmonize and improve the digital collaboration with its suppliers throughout the group. By implementing AirSupply, Leonardo benefits group-wide from efficient electronic processes that increase transparency, traceability and responsiveness throughout its supply chain and improve inventory control.

Continental and ZF Friedrichshafen’s customers include numerous automotive manufacturers (so-called OEM). In this industry, the demands on logistics, feasibility, quality, quantities and compliance are particularly high. Both companies therefore need absolutely reliable partners.
Until recently, however, they were faced with a challenge: How can they check with both known and, in particular, new suppliers to see whether they can produce newly developed parts in the required quality and quantity, deliver them on time and on the right terms and conditions? Read more
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
The production of electric vehicles must be based on smart manufacturing. This is a holistic, new business model which takes user needs into account. Therefore, it must also innovate, change and improve the entire supply chain system.

Technology company ZF provides its customers worldwide with components for just-in-sequence production. Material bottlenecks due to supply delays quickly lead to major production problems. For critical overseas transport that is prone to delays, ZF has teamed up with SupplyOn to implement a system that continuously monitors the transport status at the material level and in real-time. It provides advance notice of delays, thus ensuring stable production processes. Read more
