SupplyLine

Fully optimize & automate your supply chain with SupplyLine

SupplyLine is a web-based SCM and supplier portal that enables you to provide requirements to your suppliers and to track current and future deliveries.

SupplyLine

SupplyLine is a web-based portal with five primary goals:

  • Communicates your PO’s, long-term agreements, and forecast demand to your suppliers
  • Get stock levels and production plans from your suppliers
  • Use your supplier’s plans to update commits/promise dates
  • Find gaps between your plans, your purchasing, and what your suppliers are working on
  • Streamlines your receiving and stabilizes your inventory with advanced shipment notifications (ASNs)

SupplyLine Features

Communicates POs & Requirements

SupplyLine receives your POs, amendments, and releases from your ERP software on a regularly-scheduled basis. It normalizes this data and makes it available for your suppliers to retrieve via the internet or by using the DemandLine Network so that they can directly update their ERP software. Doing so reduces your workload, shortens the time it takes for your requirements to get to your suppliers, and ensures that your requirements arrive accurately.

Notifies of Shipments

When your suppliers ship parts to you, they can create an ASN in SupplyLine. SupplyLine provides labels for your supplier to include as barcodes on the boxes they send to you. These barcodes can be scanned by your receiving department to automatically receive shipments, eliminating data entry. SupplyLine can also help control your inventory levels by rejecting supplier shipments if the supplier is trying to ship items to you too early.

Receives Supplier Commits

Suppliers enter or send their stock levels and scheduled production to SupplyLine. That information is then used to update your ERP software so that you can see when your suppliers expect to deliver.

Provides Always Available Data

Robot Morning hosts SupplyLine for you, reducing your maintenance costs and ensuring that your data is always available to your suppliers.

The Basics of SupplyLine

SupplyLine acts as both an SCM tool and supplier portal, giving both you and your suppliers a single source of truth you share. You can both look at the same screen together to see how your requirements and their plans align with each other.

We designed SupplyLine to be easy to navigate and understand, with a main view that combines all of the relevant information about an item into a single screen. This allows SupplyLine to be fast, with information loading in milliseconds.

Data Channels

SupplyLine uses AXON to make your data available via Common Data Channels. Your suppliers who are using DemandLine also use those Data Channels to exchange data with you.

When you receive data from a supplier, AXON normalizes it so that the data is consistent no matter what systems the supplier is using. This makes it possible for SupplyLine to handle every supplier’s data using a standard set of logic that’s correct for your ERP.

Purchase Order and Amendment data represents new purchase orders or amendments to existing purchase orders.

Schedule data is the set of demand coming from your customers or going to your suppliers.

Operational Data is the set of stock, WIP, and planned work orders sent to your customers or coming from your suppliers.
Shipment Notification is the set of data that contains shipments that are in transit to your customer or are in transit from your suppliers.
