#1 Procurement Expertise for Automotive Manufacturers
Procurement software know-how for the automotive industry
The automotive industry has the most advanced procurement practices in the business world. Our software solution keeps pace with these advances, making us the leading partner for the industry.
Shorter development cycles, closer technology partnerships with suppliers, high supply chain quality requirements, and ongoing monitoring of critical suppliers are all challenges that our automotive customers face every day. Optimizing the sustainability of supplier audits is a mandatory part of supplier development. The analysis of cost components from different suppliers using detailed split of costs cannot be overlooked in today’s automotive sector.
What Sets Us Apart?
Our software solutions for the automotive industry cover all aspects of transactional and strategic procurement. Our proven modules were developed in cooperation with market leaders and have been helping OEMs and their suppliers optimize their processes for 15 years.
Category and region-dependent supplier qualification and approval is a core issue in supplier management. Unique material group-specific supplier development workflows help to ensure that the development and quality departments are involved in the process from the beginning. The workflows also guarantee that boycott lists are checked automatically and that critical financial data is taken into account.
In the area of eSourcing we offer support that goes beyond the classic process concepts RFI – RFQ – eAuction. With additional functions such as Linear Performance Pricing (LPP) and raw-material benchmarking, we use detailed data from cost-break-downs from the RFQ for statistical purposes. This makes it easy to, for example, ensure ongoing controlling of raw material trends in the final product.
Supply Chain Management (SCM)
Supply Chain Management is key in ensuring delivery that meets demand. In contrast to pure EDI service providers who work on the basis of received documents, we provide complex logic in the ERP system. To secure their supply and ensure transparency, many customers use a combination of delivery schedules, dispatch notifications with label printing, and VMI.
We also have specialized know-how when it comes to integrating logistics service providers, packaging management, and manufacturer’s part numbers. With our long-term supplier declarations, we automate customs clearance. Our Document Approval Exchange Module also simplifies and streamlines the time-consuming and non-value adding process of exchanging documents with suppliers. The module makes it easy to exchange all types of documents, such as drawings, process instructions, standards or REACH documents.
Quality management in the automotive industry serves as THE standard for all other industries. Like EDIFACT in the logistics sector, we were one of the first companies worldwide to set QDX standards and produce a standardized quality portal in close cooperation with leading global automotive suppliers that also included the exchange of quality information.
