Allocation Network Signet
Allocation is a best of breed solution provider for strategic purchasing and supplier quality management.

We are founder-managed and have been operating for over 20 years. The entire procurement process beyond contract awarding of a product lifecycle is centralized & organized using our Supplier Management, Sourcing, Auctions and Collaboration modules. The users of our systems are typically from companies with a turnover above € 100 million.

The ASTRAS modules:

Supplier Management

With ASTRAS Supplier Management, all supplier data are available to you at any time and are always up-to-date. The suppliers maintain their data independently, the process participants from purchasing enrich this data with internal information.

Sourcing

ASTRAS Sourcing is regarded as the best international solution for electronic enquiry processes. In the best case ASTRAS interlocks with your ERP systems to enable a continuous document flow from the demand to the order.

Auctions

With ASTRAS Auctions you can conduct your own auctions or let our experts look after you within the scope of our full-service offer. Our auction team supports you throughout the entire process.

Collaboration

ASTRAS Collaboration ensures that both internal activities in your purchasing organisation and external communication with your suppliers are systematic, regulated and transparent.

Why Allocation?

For many years, companies have focused on supporting operational indirect purchasing due to the large number of suppliers and orders. However, they neglect the implementation of e-solutions for supplier selection, awarding and supplier quality management in strategic direct procurement. This is much more complex and has the far greater impact on the results of a manufacturing company. And this is exactly our world.
