VGP wins first major SAP award
Turnhout, 30 November 2021 | As Van Genechten Packaging (VGP) aims to support their customers in ever better ways, winning this particular SAP award means the company reaches standard-setting levels of efficiency and service.
In full: it’s the 'BEST DIRECT SPEND DEMAND COLLABORATION SUPPLIER AWARD 2021'. VGP wins major design awards on a regular basis, but this is its first big supply chain industry prize: a recognition of its innovative, holistic approach to being a packaging supplier. All through the Ariba network by SAP.
High volume data-driven magic
Designing and delivering packaging is one thing, but supplying on demand, and staying ahead of the curve? Close collaboration between supplier and customer makes all the difference. That is exactly what SAP Ariba Supply Chain Collaboration is designed for. The key? Exchange of data, analysis, and automation at ever increasing speed. Van Genechten Packaging makes high volume data-driven magic happen this way.
Through SAP’s Ariba network VGP exchanges high volumes of data in a common ‘language’. This helps avoiding mistakes and miscommunication, automates standard processes and reduces the need for time-consuming follow-ups: the teams at both sides can focus on more urgent and important matters this way.
Automated data analysis at VGP’s side results in instant feedback and improvement plans. Real-time access to supply chain numbers enables the packaging teams to respond to changes more intelligently. And managing a customer’s inventory helps to spot trends and opportunities, and improve forecasting.
New VGP customers already on the Ariba network who want to exchange EDI-messages enjoy drastically increased implementation speed now. And VGP is more than happy to show the way to companies not on the Ariba network yet.
Trust and transparency
This type of close cooperation is part of the increasingly transparent and open relationship between customer and supplier. Exchanging supply chain data is a matter of trust too. VGP is proud to be able to work with major companies and brands in this way.
