New Feature: Group Automation

by Bertrand Duteil on 04/04/2017

As one of the last steps in the ecratum Automation story, we released group automation yesterday.

With this, you can now define requirements you have for your suppliers per group.

ecratum will then make sure that all your suppliers in that group will get the same tasks (avoiding duplicates of course).

The new ecratum: tasks and notifications

by Laura Heisch on 21/12/2015

As you already know there will be a new ecratum packed full of new features. One of the new features will be about tasks and notifications.

  • Users are only shown tasks actually assigned to them
  • Assignment of tasks is now individually and/or automatically manageable, e.g. „Only Mrs. Smith and Mr. Miller are to review all uploaded ISO-certificates“
  • Assigned tasks can be passed on to colleagues
  • Automated tasks can be reassigned to colleagues temporarily (e.g. holiday leave)

New Feature: Supplier and customer contacts overview

by Laura Heisch on 05/11/2015

At ecratum we listen. Following feedback from our users we have optimized the contact overview for both: clients and suppliers.

The benefit for both parties is now you can see at a quick glance who is the right contact person to answer all of your questions and queries.

We have marked the responsible contacts for the quality and purchasing department as well as the account person responsible with new icons.

New feature: Dashboard notifications

by Laura Heisch on 23/09/2015

For you, functioning data exchange and continuous communication with your suppliers is critical to maintain successful supplier relationships. That's why we have vastly improved the notification feature on the dashboard.
ecratum will keep you informed about all changes in your supplier base on a continuous basis. From now on, you will be much better informed about  new  suppliers, status changes or new comments.
Notifications are now grouped by category of notification.
Only persons responsible for a supplier such as purchasing or quality will get notfications.
If no responsible person is assigned to a supplier, the account responsible will get the respective notifications. Thus, no important information can get lost.

How does this work in ecratum:

New feature: "Approved" status when uploading documents

by Reema Singhal on 02/07/2015

Generally, you as a company ask your suppliers to send you documents and certificates online. However, often it might happen that the suppliers send you documents by e-mail or via offline methods like, by mail or by fax. You already know that you can upload the document on ecratum on behalf of your supplier. Now, we have improved this feature even more for you.
