Efficient ordering process via online portal
The integrated product search function with predefined search options allows for finding the required spare parts including all product details quickly and easily. In addition, personalized product searches can be created, enabling manufacturers to save and manage specified search criteria at all times. This contributes to an optimized information procurement and to time and cost savings. For a more efficient information exchange during the ordering process, the E-Portal offers a memo function. All members of staff involved in ordering spare parts can have access to the E-Portal if required. Even operators who work closely with the machinery can create a memo, listing spare parts needed for maintenance or repairs. Accessing the earmarked data the spare parts ordering department obtains the required parts directly via the online platform. This enhances internal communication, reduces the effort to identify spare parts and avoids incorrect orders.
“Increasing competition in the market raises daily cost and time pressure on manufacturers,” said Katja Bartsch, Product Management Bosch Packaging Services. “The E-Portal helps manufacturers to optimize their spare parts planning and reduces planned downtime of the packaging machines during production and maintenance. It also eliminates time-consuming searches for spare parts and improves the ordering process.”
Tailor made for perfectionists
Additional functionalities enable manufacturers to shape the ordering process even more customized. For example, the Open Catalog Interface (OCI) transfers the E-Portal information into the company’s own purchasing catalog systems. This allows manufacturers to process orders in their own system. Furthermore, the Corporate Portal function enables manufacturers to create centralized orders for different facilities.
