NXP Europe offers an unbeatable range of products and services for the individual, small business, agency or corporation. With over 200 years of experience between them, the senior management team has a wealth of knowledge and expertise.
NXP had been using Claritum’s supplier network capabilities to bid and win work, receive and process orders. However, due to the increasing demand from a number of clients, NXP’s management needed to automate in bound order processing via Claritum to deliver efficiencies but also to differentiate their offering and win more business.
Claritum’s supplier network to bid and win work
NXP’s technical team reviewed internal business requirements to understand the scope of the integration project. They then took an in depth look at Claritum’s web services API. Another team also assessed the business case for integrating Claritum into the NXP workflow.
The volume and profile of orders was such that the benefits of automation were clear. The technical team had scoped the project to be a small number of days, which clearly demonstrated a return on investment would be achieved in a short time frame.
Additionally, the resultant increase in service levels and margin improvements, gave NXP’s management the business justification required to approve the project.
NXP’s technical completed the project in good time with support from Claritum.
NXP are now receiving and processing a growing volume and value of orders via the Claritum platform, with minimal manual intervention. Orders received are typically in production within 10 minutes of receipt. Once orders are ready to be shipped, NXP can automatically confirm goods dispatched and received by their clients.
With the increasing volume of orders, came pressure on the ability to invoice efficiently and accurately. NXP’s finance team use Claritum to ‘flip’ a PO into an invoice in just a few minutes – eliminating re-keying and errors. This approach helps NXP to ensure timely and accurate billing with knock-on improvement in cashflow.
