The movement of goods from one place to another, and the subsequent payment, relies on a constant flow of information between organisations and departments. For example, your customer sends you an order, and you then send them an order acknowledgement.... they send you a proof of delivery, and you send them an invoice. This is why, traditionally, a huge amount of time and resource is spent simply taking the information received from your customer or supplier and inputting into your ERP system.
Currently, this information might be sitting on someone's desk, within a fax. Or in an email with an attached pdf on someone's computer. Or, even in an excel spreadsheet. Finding, extracting, and inputting that information into your ERP is a manual process. And it’s this manual process that is ultimately holding up the supply chain process for those organisations who have not yet automated their data entry.
The processing of Advanced Shipment Notices, Proof of Delivery, Goods Receipt Notes, Transport Orders, Inventory Movements, Information on Delivery and Logistics Claims.
Because our platform is based on checking information against your specific customers’ information, order errors or GRN inconsistencies are immediately flagged up for your review. Your teams become more proactive and your ERP data more accurate – leading to improved customer satisfaction. Once you have all your supply chain information in one place, in a consistent format, you can do so much more with it. Which is why, automating data entry is only step 1.
