Supplier documentation plays an essential role in procurement and delivery processes, especially in mechanical and plant engineering. The requirements resulting from legal and contractual provisions are constantly increasing, making technical documentation more and more comprehensive. Therefore, the manufacturer or plant constructor is responsible for maintaining an overview of the completeness and validity of the complete documentation.
The solution: Digital, cross-company document control
By using process-driven cloud-based supplier documentation such as Fabasoft Approve, all parties involved along the supply chain can be actively integrated in the documentation process: Thereby, all documents are stored centrally and securely in the cloud, authorised users can access them at any time and thus always maintain an overview. Automated review and approval processes in combination with cross-company coordination, finalisation and delivery of the complete technical documentation provide significant efficiency gains. Transparency, traceability and the highest security standards are further benefits of a cloud-based, complete documentation and an essential part of a professional market presence.
The whitepaper "Cloud-based supplier documentation" provides detailed information on the benefits of digital, process-driven supplier documentation and includes criteria for selecting the suitable software. In addition, a best practice application from the plant engineering sector proves that digital cross-company document control significantly accelerates project execution.
