SupplyOn offers early-warning system in the ordering process:

Individually configurable alert functions ensure maximum transparency for buyers and suppliers

SupplyOn, the leading platform for cross-company cooperation in the manufacturing industry, is ensuring that ordering and delivery processes run more smoothly with a new early-warning system. Customizable reminder functions enable problems in the supply chain to be identified in good time and avoided. Transparency in the supply chain is sharply improved for buyers and suppliers. As a result, misunderstandings in communication and bottlenecks in the supply chain are minimized.

In future, buyers can be reminded that suppliers have not yet sent purchase order confirmations. The electronic purchase order confirmation shows the buyer whether a supplier is actually able to deliver the ordered goods in time. If the supplier is not able to supply by the desired date, he can confirm the date as deviating from the delivery schedule. If no confirmation is made, a message is automatically sent to both parties.

Reminders of pending or already overdue deliveries are possible. Depending on the individual setting, they are sent shortly before the pending delivery or if the delivery is late. This is particularly useful when working with suppliers with whom orders are only placed sporadically.

With the aid of the individually configurable alert functions, buyers are better able to assess their actual supply situation and avoid bottlenecks. Presentation of the data in a common system that can be accessed by buyers and suppliers offers ideal transparency to both parties. That enables prompt detection of problems and efficient working. In this way, SupplyOn offers sustained support in cross-company cooperation in the manufacturing industry.
