All-in-One Supply Collaboration Platform

We believe in the efficiency of integrated processes. Therefore, we have – unlike other providers – never developed simply just IT tools, but always developed this as a part of a larger whole. As pioneers of electronic procurement, we chose the right path many years ago and cultivated the processes of modern, commodity-specific shopping with that of operational procurement – all in a single solution.

Our All-in-One Supply Collaboration Platform, based on four pillars, covers all major areas of purchasing:

Strategic Purchasing

Design and Rollout of Lead Buyer Concept

In addition to the selection of suppliers and supplier development, modern category strategy consists of many additional criteria, such as bundling strategies, logistical involvement, and evaluation criteria for the supplier ratings. POOL4TOOL ensures the global implementation of these strategies and connects and involves the local buyer and project buyers with the Engineering, Logistics and Quality Management departments.

Operative Process Optimization

Operative Process Optimization using WebEDI/EDI

A streamlined supply chain with optimized logistics processes, such as advanced shipping notification, including label printing or VMI is only possible with the electronic exchange of data. Over 60% of our customers are optimizing their logistics processes with our solutions. To ensure that transactions with high volumes of data and differing formats don’t hinder business processes, we integrate suppliers, logistics service provider and clients using WebEDI or EDI.
