In 2017, Schmitz Cargobull implemented the shopping software ASTRAS as an “on-premise” solution with Allocation Network.

In an extensive selection process, the requirements were determined by Schmitz Cargobull and several market participants were examined in a tender. The software solution had to be convincing in four selected core areas: strategy, processes, it and costs.

In detail, the software solution should offer the following added value:

  1. Reduction of manual and administrative processing costs
  2. Reduction of process costs
  3. Creating open spaces for strategic tasks
  4. Secure and protocolable data exchange and standardized process processing
  5. Integration of existing IT systems

In the final elimination process, Allocation Network has prevailed against other competitors with the following points:

  1. Seamless integration into the existing SAP system
  2. Future viability of the software
  3. High user-friendliness
  4. High solution competence of the provider

The worldwide go-Live was done four months after the original kickoff. Since then, potential suppliers have been able to apply via the homepage of Schmitz Cargobull as a supplier and have since received inquiries in digital form.

One key component for the rapid introduction of ASTRAS was the open communication with the suppliers. A joint commitment to the future strategic cooperation and the importance of the supplier platform for Schmitz Cargobull allowed a rapid on-boarding of the suppliers during the project phase.

Schmitz Cargobull is thinking about letting the supplier maintain quality data in the future. This would move the data from a obligation to a seek and would therefore be permanently visible to both partners. ASTRAS already offers this possibility with the module collaboration.
