Despite all the buzz over catchwords like Industry 4.0, automation and digital transformation, when it comes to invoicing, we still live in a mainly analogue, non-electronic, non-automated world. Even today, at the close of 2019, the majority of invoices is sent in paper or unstructured formats. Formats that cannot (or hardly) be processed electronically.

Airbus harmonized its global procurement processes with a innovative, highly comprehensive initiative featuring AirSupply, earning a well-deserved nomination for the German Logistics Award

The construction of an aircraft is preceded by a highly complex, sophisticated procurement process. Almost every aircraft at Airbus is unique – and consists of around one million individual parts. Managing this is a challenge in itself. It becomes even more complex when, as at Airbus, almost a dozen locations in Europe and Canada coordinate operational purchasing. In order to act more efficiently, Airbus has developed a four-pillar model in which AirSupply from SupplyOn plays a key role.
