On Anvyl, Part-Supplier links can be created for any part or supplier. The act of linking your parts and suppliers can be incredibly valuable down the line as you look to make optimizations to your supply chain lead times, drive down costs, and strengthen your supplier relationships. Learn how to create Part-Supplier Links.
Part-Supplier links include the following details:
- Supplier Part #
- Units per master case
- Master cases per pallet
- Minimum order quantity (MOQ)
- Production lead times (days)
- Last 3 production lead time (days)
- Last 3 quantities ordered
- Last 3 prices
- Ability to clone any of the last 3 orders containing the part and supplier
The benefits of creating Part-Supplier links
When creating Part-Supplier links on the platform, other workflows are faster and automated.
Specify Packing Details by Supplier
It’s no surprise that each supplier will do things a little differently. If you purchase a part that has alternate supplier part numbers, different units per case, or modified cases per pallet based on the supplier, a Part-Supplier Link allows you to keep the integrity of the part in your Parts Library, while linking it to unique supplier information.
Create Purchase Orders Faster
When creating a new purchase order, a Part-Supplier Link on Anvyl will automatically populate the linked supplier information and the price based on the quantity entered. This helps you save time, as you don’t need to look up the supplier information each time you place an order.
View Actual Prices and Lead Times by Supplier
After closing out orders that have Part-Supplier Links, you will be able to view actual lead times and prices for this part by each supplier you’ve previously ordered from. These data points are calculated automatically and appear in your Part-Supplier link. Optionally, you can even clone the past order when looking up this information.
