Many companies take on global trade and logistics services on behalf of their customers and partners or other internal divisions. To enable them to calculate prices and bill these services more easily, AEB has expanded its ASSIST4 logistics suite with ASSIST4 Billing, which supports the entire billing process, from automated price and cost calculation to invoicing and internal cost allocation.
Companies taking on customs or shipment processing for internal or external customers often turn to large, complex spreadsheets for calculating prices. And yet price calculation, with its tendency toward fixed rules, lends itself so well to automation. AEB’s ASSIST4 Billing provides companies with software that calculates prices transparently and automatically. ASSIST4 Billing does this by retrieving all the necessary information from the operational systems through a standard Web service interface and calculating the prices based on defined price components with price scales and rules.
“With ASSIST4 Billing, we are expanding AEB’s suite by an essential service component. All types of services along the entire supply chain can be flexibly evaluated, checked, and billed,” said Markus Meissner, Managing Director of AEB. “ASSIST4 Billing simplifies invoice management in all business and contract constellations and can be used very efficiently for profit centre management, for example.”
AEB’s ASSIST4 Billing is now available and can be used as an on-premises or cloud solution. ASSIST4 Billing expands the ASSIST4 suite, which provides comprehensive support for supply chain processes, including procurement, production and distribution logistics, warehousing, transport and customs management, export controls and supply chain visibility.
