The Voice of the Supplier

  • Go-Live in September 2019
  • Tailored processes to actual business needs from various customers

  • Over 30.000 processed invoices since go-live (as of Jan 2021)
  • Significant reduction in disputed invoices and payment times

Testimonial: “The transparency it provides […] is amazing.”

 

I log in to SupplyOn 4 to 6 times a day. The transparency it provides in terms of PO changes as well as around the status of shipments, receipts and invoices is amazing.

Previously, especially for invoicing, we were sitting in the last car of a train looking back at the invoices sent, not knowing what is ahead in terms of payment. With SupplyOn, we can look ahead and see all details on requested quantities and prices.

This allows us to issue our invoices accordingly, avoiding errors leading to invoice disputes before the invoices are submitted thus ensuring on-time payment.

In short: It’s a win-win situation for both, customer and supplier.

 

Suppliers using other modes (web interface, CSV upload, connect mode) reap the benefits of efficient and transparent payment processes, too. Hear what GKN Aerospace, Bennett Safetywear and SAFT Batteries say:
