Cologne, Germany. September 2018 – Accuracy, speed and quality at optimised costs – these are the top priorities for parts manufacturers, traders and workshops. This particularly applies to the efficient processing of spare part orders along the entire supply chain. This is why the further development of the order-to-invoice solution is among the highlights which TecAlliance is presenting in Frankfurt: from electronic part availability enquiries through placing orders to invoicing – all of these processes can be carried out smoothly and efficiently using the Order Manager solution. This solution, which facilitates the professional management of the entire order-to-invoice process, is aimed at parts manufacturers, dealers and workshops. Within their company, customers benefit from having the order, invoicing and returns processes bundled into a single system. Each partner requires just one connection to the B2B platform, meaning that they can communicate with all their business partners – irrespective of the format requirements and the technical connection – with no problem at all.
With its comprehensive range of functions and practice-oriented architecture, Order Manager is the multi-functional tool that provides optimum support to the entire order-to-invoice process. A central user interface now provides access to all the TecAlliance process modules for the supply chain. These include order processing (Order), electronic invoicing (e-Invoicing), warranty and returns processing (Returns) as well as access to article information (Collaborative Managed Data). The most important benefits of the integrated solution are the cost savings and the acceleration and simplification of processes due to automation and digitisation.
The individual modules can either be used separately or as a complete solution as required. They interlock like cogwheels to feed information to each another. Integration in ERP systems is also possible. Order Manager is an online solution which is complemented by a mobile app to make finding the product even easier. If desired, the app can put scanned-in articles directly in the shopping basket.
Spare parts dealers save time and costs thanks to coordinated communication channels and standardised formats and models for supply structures. Order Manager allows them to keep an overview at any time of all the relevant article information, such as prices and availability. They can synchronise it with the merchandise management system via a direct ERP connection. Order Manager provides a central solution for processing orders, claims and returns. It makes it easy to correctly address and send notification of claims. All target groups benefit from improved efficiency, shorter reaction times and more satisfied customers.
