Machinery & Equipment

Most comprehensive solution
for Machinery & Equipment

Our customers hold leading positions within the Machinery & Equipment industry. Most of them faced common challenges before launching their digital transformation initiatives: the difficulty of managing a volatile order book and constant changes in the supplier base. 

New suppliers  

Industry research demonstrates a considerable supplier churn rate. This turnover is often increasing due to recent supply chain disruptions as well as new sourcing strategies, such as dual sourcing or re-shoring. As a result, Machinery & Equipment manufacturers have to onboard 35% of net new suppliers each year. 


Unconfirmed orders

The manufacturing bill of materials (MBOM) can be very complex. Hence, when a third of the orders remain unconfirmed or have line-level exceptions, this consequently can result in high costs for direct materials, increased inventory levels, unplanned production downtime, increased lead times, and overall time to market.


Supplier OTIF

In order to build complex machinery with thousands of parts on time, this industry needs 95 to 100% compliance with on-time-in-full performance from suppliers. In today's reality, disruptions that begin with tier-2 or tier-3 suppliers have typically lowered performance. Increasing inventory to offset this is a costly and risky alternative.

Our approach

Most selected apps in Machinery & Equipment

Supply Chain Apps that can meet any business priority without complicated "suite" deployments 

With our composability promise we provide API-driven process integration between apps and external systems. These give you the flexibility to pursue your specific digital transformation priorities.  We support you to consolidate your end-to-end supply chain processes, whether it starts with procurement, forecasts, inventory, manufacturing, logistics, maintenance & quality, or invoicing. It is all available for you on one single collaborative business network, like Tradeshift and project44.

Because we incorporated the complexity in our application and integration data model, your teams only have to navigate the intuitive user interface to manage their role in the supply chain. That means more real-time data, smarter performance indicators, better AI, and an increasingly resilient supply chain ecosystem.


Forecast Collaboration

The Forecast Collaboration App allows collaboration between buyers and suppliers on developments in time-phased demand. With this app, both parties have access to the same demand & supply data, can set up a contract-based procurement process, and will be guided by the workflow to efficiently move through changes in the supply plan and the associated capacity from the supplier.


Order Collaboration

The Order Collaboration App optimizes collaboration around purchase order processes between buyers and sellers. The full integration with the supplier's ERP system enables smooth data exchange, enables end-to-end monitoring, creates real-time transparency, and can be used to take corrective actions on exceptions that occur at the order line level to ensure timely and efficient (re)planning.


Shipment Collaboration

With the Shipment Collaboration App, suppliers can easily build shipments from open Order Lines or Schedules and announce these to buyers as well as to a logistic service provider. These Advance Shipment Notifications (ASNs) are your most effective control of actual supply performance. Advanced features are also available, such as "pack-and-stack", and data enrichment with serial numbers and certificates.


Electronic Document Management

The Electronic Document Management App is a supporting add-on to the transactional Quyntess SCM apps. The app simplifies and secures communication and collaboration with external partners by storing all important documents, including their version control in one place. This makes it easier to track, manage, and share all types of documents with extra security and access control.


Product Data Management

The Product Data Management app synchronizes and updates item master data between your ERP system and the suppliers in a controlled manner. The app ensures that there are fewer issues with replacement items, and specification updates including certificates and other documents. This will lead to less dead stock, or incorrectly ordered parts, and enables the controlled management of associated documents.
