Tool Support & Automation

The supply chain management platform SPOT brings all involved parties together in one place and provides the basis for efficient purchase order management. The SPOT Purchase Order Management module provides an overview of your suppliers’ production progress and expected cargo readiness dates to help you optimize transport utilization and efficiently consolidate shipments. Workflow-based automation ensures that your purchase orders are processed smoothly and according to schedule. Get informed whenever complications arise by system-driven reminders and alerts that can be customized to your needs and procurement processes.

Supplier & System Integration

Integrate suppliers and other parties quickly and easily and grant them access to SPOT with just a few clicks. All parties can access real-time information via their preferred internet browser without the need to install external software.

In addition, we offer a range of standardized data exchange services, from traditional EDI to RESTful APIs, to fully integrate all processes and parties along your supply chain. If you prefer to set up an EDI connection using your own in-house expertise, we can provide all the information your developers need.
