In particular in the case of complex supply chains, it is vital for your requirements planning department to be informed of upcoming goods consignments promptly and extensively. That is because unscheduled goods receipts or deliveries that cannot be handled or can only be processed with considerable effort due to false labels, barcodes or packaging cost valuable time and money.
With the electronic Advanced Shipping Notification (ASN) in SupplyOn, you know exactly what your supplier will deliver where, when and in what quantity. The advantage of the electronic process is obvious: When your supplier creates an Advanced Shipping Notification, it already contains information from the original order or the delivery instruction. That means your supplier only has to add a few more details relating to the packaging, volume and transportation. Well before the goods are received, your dispatchers therefore receive all the information they need to make the necessary preparations for receiving the goods.
You can use SupplyOn to map the Advanced Shipping Notification process with suppliers who have an EDI system, as well as suppliers who use the Web frontend of SupplyOn – i.e. regardless of their size or the order volume.
