Tradecloud offers multiple modules for automating your purchase processes.
Typically users start with Purchase Orders and then extend processes.
eProcurement: send purchase orders automatically
As a buyer, you can share purchase orders directly and automatically from the ERP system through Tradecloud to your suppliers. Suppliers can then confirm the orders by number, price and delivery time. Changes are directly adapted to the ERP system. Suppliers are kept informed of what’s still open. Everybody looks at the same information.
Have access to scheduled deliveries from suppliers including track & trace information. Realize a better (JIT/Lean/QRM) planning for the production and/or warehouse. Announce and schedule deliveries by suppliers. Get insight into expected deliveries, including packing slips, freight letters and specifications.
Central Item Management
Central article catalog
Buyers and vendors both have access to the same article information. Prices, delivery times and any CAD specifications are available in real time for all parties involved. A central overview of all item master data causes fewer errors. Suppliers have access to their own data and can customize them.
Ensure suppliers have access to future material needs. Provide suppliers with more information so that they can also better organize their own process. Share material requirement for the next 12 months. Get insight into inventory at different locations.
