Demand Driven SupplyChain Sessions

We organized a seminar together with TradeCloud at our joint customer Heering. The subject of this seminar was sharing information with suppliers.

In traditional companies, the order goes via a purchaser (whether or not by fax) to the supplier. TradeCloud offers companies the opportunity to share their needs with suppliers via a portal. As a result, a large number of non-value-adding (order) processes are made redundant.

More and more of our customers are securing supplier knowledge in our Merkato software. As a result, they make work preparation redundant not only for themselves, but also for their suppliers.

During the seminar we showed how the knowledge of Heering’s switch cabinet supplier is linked to the quotation generator of Heering. This allows the switch cabinet supplier (via TradeCloud) to see in real time how many of its parts are in the pipeline and he can base its decisions on this. The result is even shorter delivery times and even less unnecessary paperwork.
