Which suppliers should use the Supplier Portal?

  • Suppliers with low to medium number of order lines per month with ASSA ABLOY should choose the Supplier Portal. Typically suppliers with less than 100 purchase order lines per month should use this solution.
  • Suppliers that do not have an ERP, limited e-commerce experience or with limited IT resources or skills should choose the Supplier Portal.

Process Flow:

The below diagram outlines the purchase order to invoice process flow.

  • PO = Purchase Order.
  • ACK = Purchase order acknowledgment or confirmation.
  • ASN = Advanced shipping notice, dispatch information or shipping notice.
  • INV = Invoice.

Not all documents are mandatory. For example if you agree with ASSA ABLOY to only received the purchase order and send the order acknowledgement then the Supplier Portal can be setup to only require those two steps.
