With WebConnect for Suppliers, Retarus has developed an entirely new service which overcomes the pitfalls of conventional WebEDI solutions by taking a completely new approach. WebConnect for Suppliers facilitates wide-ranging automation of a company’s communication with class C suppliers, taking their challenges into consideration, offering an excellent solution, and providing a real alternative.
The latest release adds a host of exciting, crucial new functions to the service. Smaller class C suppliers are now able to use WebConnect for Suppliers to effortlessly generate shipping notifications (aka delivery notifications) and subsequently transfer them automatically in a structured format to a customer’s ERP system. It’s never been easier to provide advance notice of forthcoming shipments. For the ordering party, the process is just as uncomplicated as receiving a shipping notification from a class A supplier hooked up directly via EDI.
New shortcuts in WebConnect for Suppliers
Numerous shortcuts ensure that users of WebConnect for Suppliers can generate shipping notifications as efficiently and quickly as possible. If a supplier confirms several different delivery dates, for instance, the system generates separate shipping notifications for each date at the click of a button.
Of course, it’s also possible to edit the automatically generated delivery notifications prior to sending them. By way of a dedicated view, the supplier always maintains an overview over missing items, or articles for which the delivery has not yet been announced. The appearance in the display is the same as the familiar paper documents, helping users find their way around the documents immediately and effortlessly.
The system enables suppliers lacking their own EDI infrastructure to issue clearly structured, reliable shipping notifications – intuitively, quickly and containing exactly the information their customers require. The best way to experience how WebConnect for Suppliers now simplifies communication even further is to try out the new functions directly in our demo together with your suppliers.
