Supplier Schedule Release information is replicated from your QAD Enterprise Applications ( MFG/PRO ) environment to the eKanBan Web Portal where portal security ensures suppliers view and transact against their eKanBan cards only. The PICS eKanBan system supports both non-EDI and EDI capable suppliers.
Suppliers use the portal to view eKanBan cards, view Supplier Schedule Release information, transact against active eKanBan cards and print eKanBan cards. eKanBan Cards are validated/acknowledged by the supplier when they print the cards from the portal. Suppliers then enter or scan their eKanBan cards into the portal at time of shipment, which automatically updates eKanBan card status to shipped.
The following transactions are supported via the portal and updated in real time to your QAD Enterprise Applications ( MFG/PRO ) database with appropriate transaction history records created and card status updated:
View "Empty" cards and "Validate" them.
View "Validated" cards and "Ship" them.
Print Supplier Schedules via the Web.
ASN's - When a Supplier ships eKanBan automatically creates a PO Shipper in QAD Enterprise Applications ( MFG/PRO ).
