This is how the supplier integration into the inbound process chain works:
Orders to the supplier/s are automatically placed in OrderPortal via an interface.
The supplier can see all orders destined for him presented clearly in the portal. He has various possibilities to search for references or status values.
When an order (or part of it) is ready to be shipped, the supplier creates the corresponding shipping units (e.g. pallets) in OrderPortal.
Then the supplier packs the articles (order items) in the created package units by using drag & drop, taking into account the quantity available. Thus, a precise hierarchy is created showing which item and what quantity of it is packed in which package.
The SSCC label can be created directly in OrderPortal.
Thanks to its flexibility, the layout including the logo and other specific characteristics such as the order number or item number can be customized according to your needs.
Transports can be assigned to a forwarder automatically within all transport-relevant data (if they are not assigned by the supplier).
It is also possible to transfer them in real time to our WebPublishing portal for tendering or direct assignment.
Simplifying goods receipt:
Once the order has been completed by the supplier, automized interfaces of the OrderPortal provide all required data to the purchaser‘s goods receipt system or WMS. After scanning the SSCC label during goods receipt in inbound delivery, all information for further treatment of the ordered goods are available.
Statistics and analyzes:
OrderPortal offers a wide range of statistics and analyses for internal and external purposes.
Data can be analyzed interactively and flexibly using the Cube module.
In addition, predefined Dashboards offer a quick overview. Their aim is to represent all relevant data in a transparent and self-explanatory way.
Smart use of modern web technologies
The OrderPortal is based on modern web and database technologies and will be implemented as an LP2 extension.
