CloudTrade offers suppliers the ability to move away from paper, fax and re-keying from emails and instead receive validated orders direct in their sales order application ready for processing – within seconds of their customer sending it. This can be done, with zero technical or process change in the sender’s environment raising the order.
As a buyer, you create your order in the way you always have done. Though instead of printing or faxing your order, your simply send via email to the address managed by CloudTrade on your, or your supplier’s behalf. CloudTrade maps the data (no OCR!) directly from the PDF (or any other application generated document), validates it and makes it available to your supplier’s sales order system for processing.
No manual data entry is required, and paper and fax are removed from the process. And because of the validation and mapping that CloudTrade performs before data is entered on to the supplier’s systems, there are fewer errors and orders can be dispatched and invoiced without rectification or delay.
