PORTALINK

C-SUITE

the automation engine

The Portalink™C-Suite methodology has conquered the ‘Seven Cs’, which are critical for successful order automation.

Unique, non-invasive Portalink™C-Suite technology automatically captures orders from customers without any changes to the software systems at either end.

CAPTURES non-EDI purchase orders

Portalink™C-Suite has developed a methodology that automatically converts the text in any purchase order template into electronic data with unprecedented accuracy (not OCR dependent).

CONVERTS to electronic data

The data in a customer's software system is often incomplete or out-of-sync. Portalink™C-Suite automatically checks codes, prices, units of measure, freight rates etc, to identify any discrepancies or variations.

CHECKS for errors

Portalink™C-Suite helps the operator (CSR) to apply quick fixes to any discrepancies with Automation Intelligence that learns over time. This enables orders to be exported in an EDI-compatible state, in the fastest possible time, free of costly errors.

CLEANSES fit for export

Portalink™C-Suite sends EDI compliant files directly to the recipient's (ERP) database or via an established EDI gateway, increasing the ROI on existing EDI hardware and software.

CREATES compatible EDI file

Portalink™C-Suite automatically captures email communications and web portals can be extended to customers, sales reps, and vendors to keep all stakeholders in the loop with automated alerts and messages.

COMMUNICATES with customers & reps

A multitude of dynamic KPIs can be easily tracked in real-time with customisable BI Dashboards visible to all authorised users.

AUTOMATION

Portalink automates the long-tail of non-EDI trading partners. Portalink has no impact on transactions that are already being processed via a pre-existing EDI-VAN.

Solving the problem that starts where EDI ends.

 

Portalink™C-Suite

What makes us different.

Portalink automates more.

We understand how complex the order entry process can be within dynamic business environments. Portalink is achieving unparalleled levels of automation success because:

Every organisation is different. We listen to our customers to understand all of the challenges. Portalink has regularly exceeded the expectations of organisations with highly complex data and challenging workflow processes.

 

Portalink can automate any document type. Portalink can even: automatically login to customer web portals; download purchase orders; convert and export electronic files to database; upload ASN’s and invoices - eliminating the time consuming manual dependencies.

 

Portalink has extensive functional capabilities to automate the most complex data validation such as: pricing (incl, volume price breaks); UOM, quote reconciliation; multiple DC; inventory allocations; freight calculations; and much more. Despite this, we still tailor every implementation to meet the specific needs of each of our clients

 

The Portalink team will work closely with you for the duration of the project, to minimise the effort and time required to implement the system and to optimise the benefits of automation

 

Portalink can convert ALL of your customers to an automated state with unprecedented accuracy. Unlike other systems, the mapping of each customer’s order template is done by Portalink quickly and cost effectively. Each new customer can be on-boarded for as little as the cost of a cup of coffee!

 

Business Intelligence Reports keep the management team in touch with order processing activities, processing times and order related information.

Choosing the right automation system is a critical decision

Purchase orders are the lifeblood of any organisation, and it is natural to be skeptical about whether or not a system can deliver all that is promised without putting the organisation at risk.

 

That is why we offer a Proof-of-Concept Trial. We believe that you need to try before you buy to ensure that our system will tick all the necessary boxes and achieve the best possible transaction automation outcomes.

"The ability to run a proof-of-concept trial with Portalink was a hugely beneficial step to convince our users in our decision making process.  Not only did we confirm our belief that Portalink was the right system for our specific business needs, but we also discovered some important customisation opportunities which Portalink happily accommodated.  The Portalink team has been very quick and reactive, and is accompanying us in a continuous improvement spirit".
