The best practice method in operative purchasing relies on EDI (“e-purchasing”) for the transmission of orders between procurement manager and supplier. In addition to that, WebEDI systems are used in particular for “smaller” suppliers.
The process includes, besides the order, the order confirmation, the delivery note and the processing of the invoices. For this purpose, e-integration offers you a complete and “ready to use” processing system.
You can gain additional benefits by using software to automate all purchasing processes in combination with EDI: more transparency, better forecasts, and faster processing of all outgoing orders. Get more information about an cloud solution for purchasing on esker.com!
In practice, the integration of small and medium-sized businesses (SMB) in particular often proves to be difficult. The reasons for the suppliers are in the area of initial costs, the necessary EDI know-how or organisational restrictions.
e-integration solves this problem with the supplier portal “edi4every1”. As the purchasing company, you set up the data exchange with the e-center of e-integration once via your existing EDI interface. All of your suppliers then only need a computer with an Internet browser as well as Internet access, to log on to your supplier portal and to electronically process orders all the way to invoicing.
»e-integration’s procurement portal streamlines the administrative processing in our purchasing department and reduces the process costs. Our suppliers obtain their orders via the Internet, together with accompanying technical documents for the quick processing of the order and feedback for us as an order confirmation, delivery note and invoice in the EDIFACT format. We as well as the suppliers improve working together.«
