Do you still have small suppliers and customers that are sending you emails, fax and paper documents? Wouldn’t it be great if all your interactions with business partners were electronic? But how can you move to an electronic model when so many of your suppliers and customers lack the expertise, budget or resources to support EDI or XML?
Web forms may be the answer to your problems. Your business partners may not be able to use EDI or XML, but they do know how to use the web. We’ll offer them a simple web “forms” application where they can view or create electronic purchase orders, ship notices and invoices.
We can create forms to support any business process. New product introductions, demand forecasting, cash management, trade finance and securities settlement instructions are just a few of the examples of business processes we’ve modeled. If the process is managed by paper forms today, we can make it electronic.
There is no EDI software to license or install. All that is required is an Internet connection and a browser. And we’ll make the web forms look just like the paper equivalents so there is no training required to use the service. They’re completely intuitive. And that’s why we call them Intelligent Web Forms.
- Visual dashboards
Your suppliers and customers can view and manage the status of transactions at a glance. The intuitive and customizable interface is easy to navigate and makes it easy to exchange electronic purchase orders, invoices, and ship notices with you. As the buyer, you have access to an Analytics Dashboard, providing you with a visual summary of all your transactions.
- Pre-populated forms and data validation
Pre-populated forms increase the speed and accuracy of document turnaround while built-in template capabilities save users re-keying time and minimize data entry errors. With built-in data validation, the accuracy of information is increased further.
- Acknowledgements and notifications
Functional acknowledgments can be automatically sent when a form is opened for viewing. Users of a new document can be notified with arrival alerts via e-mail or text message to increase business process efficiency and workflow.
- Fast and easy set-up
Onboarding hundreds of customers to your B2B program is fast and easy. We can even build forms to your unique specifications, so that suppliers send exactly the data fields your ERP applications are expecting. If the process is managed by paper forms today, we can make it electronic.
