Automated order confirmations from every supplier thanks to Retarus WebConnect for Suppliers

A reliable flow of information throughout the ordering process is critical for planning certainty in purchasing. However, this requires an automated order process for suppliers for whom EDI is not a cost-effective option.

There are often substantial challenges involved in integrating B and C suppliers when you want to digitalize your order processes. Insufficient technology, low order volumes, or a lack of economical and approved solutions are typical scenarios for these types of providers. This often means that you never receive an order confirmation, or at most, only a basic “We hereby confirm” email shows up in your inbox. The manual capture of replies such as these inevitably cost time and money in operational purchasing.

The WebConnect Portal
This is where Retarus WebConnect for Suppliers can offer fast and easy help. Suppliers simply receive your EDI order as an email containing an interactive element. This element allows them to directly access the WebConnect portal, making it possible for them to confirm, decline, or process their orders directly from the email without having to log into a portal as they typically would with WebEDI. This ensures a high acceptance rate by users and up to 75% more order confirmations from B and C suppliers. You automatically receive the reply in EDI format, which means no costs to manually enter documents in the system.

Fast & Easy
The WebConnect portal also displays barcodes for each individual purchase order item, so the supplier can simply scan the data directly off the screen for faster and easier capture. In addition, WebConnect for Suppliers allows to attach PDF files or order data in the desired EDI format if the supplier prefers automated processing using EDI.

Automated monitoring allows you to quickly and easily see which orders are past due, making cumbersome manual tracking unnecessary. This includes an automatic daily report in the form of an email, which allows you to send a supplier a payment reminder with a single click of a mouse. When you look at the big picture, all this leads to greater planning security within your own supply chain for a significantly reduced workload in operative purchasing.

Article attributes
Article attributes enable suppliers to convey additional information about individual items directly in the order confirmation, for instance sell-by dates, version numbers or batch numbers. Customers are able to define these attributes in advance, and make them optional or mandatory. It’s also possible to add other attributes of the date, text, number or time types. The function can also be fully deactivated.
