Paperless goods receipt: the automatic link between goods receipt and quality processes

Matching themes: ASN, goods receipt

Automated, digital, paperless and efficient: The SupplyOn solution Paperless Goods Receipt simplifies goods receipt and seamlessly connects with your quality processes
Automated, digital, paperless and efficient: The SupplyOn solution Paperless Goods Receipt expedites goods receipt, especially for safety-critical materials, and seamlessly connects with your quality processes

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

The ASN is getting smart: Save 60 percent time when creating shipping documents

Matching themes: artificial intelligence, ASN

AI-enhanced packaging proposals boost ASN quality, drastically reduce ASN creation time, and increase efficiencies on both sides of the supply chain
AI-enhanced packaging proposals boost ASN quality, drastically reduce ASN creation time, and increase efficiencies on both sides of the supply chain

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

Technical Review enables companies to easily conduct feasibility studies with their suppliers. It creates a digital transition from sourcing to APQP project management

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

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

Matching themes: e-invoicing, 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
