OOCL Logistics Launches Purchase Order Distribution

OOCL Logistics Launches Purchase Order Distribution

As part of a series of innovative product launches, OOCL Logistics has demonstrated its leadership in information technology and innovative solutions with the launch of Purchase Order Distribution.

“This unique product helps customers improve efficiency and offers total visibility in all communication between all parties involved in the purchase order,” said Allan Wong, CEO of OOCL Logistics. “We are pleased to offer our customers a leading advantage, in that the product supports suppliers, manufacturers, and other parties such as trading partners and logistics service providers.

Purchase Order Distribution helps customers minimise their costs for most purchase order management work, from order creation, dispatch, distribution tracking, and housekeeping to data reports. It can also reduce administration overhead in managing order distribution and vendor responses.

With OOCL Logistics’ Purchase Order Distribution customers can:

-- Dispatch order and requirement specifications to your supply chain partners
-- Enable purchase order parties to enquire and respond to the purchase order
-- Control access to order information for different partners
-- Track purchase order response
-- All purchase orders can be managed, regardless of whether the related shipments are managed by OOCL Logistics or not.

No software installation is required – vendors can use VendorPodium, OOCL Logistics’ online vendor connectivity system, to enquire about and download their purchase orders.

Mr Allan Wong explained that the product is very user-friendly. “VendorPodium allows vendors to receive, accept and discuss their purchase order with buyers. At the same time, buyers can capture and dispatch purchase orders and track vendor acceptance and communication. With Purchase Order Distribution, all these advantages are available in one place,” he said.

All purchase order information is kept online for customer downloads and enquiries for easy access any time anywhere.

PO Distribution is a PODIUM® product.
