How to establish accountability within your supply chain

Written by Anvyl

on May 21, 2020

In a supply chain, accountability matters. When there are multiple tasks, back and forth requests, and follow-ups required on a never-ending to-do list, it’s often difficult to remember everything. Many times, your success is reliant on other parties to take action. There can very often be one-off tasks with non-standard due dates, documents you are waiting on in order to move forward, or last-minute changes that take high priority in your day-to-day. For example, to ensure a supplier relationship isn’t jeopardized, you have to stay on top of your finance team to pay invoices on time.

At Anvyl, we are making it easier for you to build a system that promotes accountability throughout your entire supply chain. That is why, today, we’re excited to announce our latest collaboration feature on Production Hub: Tasks. The task management solution is available to all plans, and allows you to easily create, assign, comment on, and provide a due date for any given task. Below are just a few examples of tasks you may want to create on Anvyl.

Task list

In addition to ensuring more reliable collaboration and accountability for your supply chain, everyone now has full visibility into what projects will be completed and can discuss on-platform for more details if they wish to do so.

Messages within a task

Streamlined, referenceable, and organized

Tasks on Production Hub are organized at the purchase order level. Rather than having a notebook of unorganized tasks that are in random order, Anvyl helps you organize everything on-platform and associate a given task to a purchase order. This ensures you have full visibility into what needs to be done, when it needs to be completed, and who should be held accountable for executing it.

Unlimited collaborators, from any domain

We know your role is cross-functional. Your daily routine isn’t routine. You’re working with dozens of internal and external collaborators all the time. Unlike other task management software that restricts you to a limited team size or only allows collaborators from the same organization to access your task list, Anvyl lets you invite and assign tasks to as many collaborators as you wish, regardless of whether the person is internal to your organization.

Always on, accessible anywhere

As most teams have experienced some aspect of working from home by now, any notes that were left on your desk may not be accessible from your living room. If something gets missed or forgotten, you’ll be blamed. Some of the risks include last-minute rush fees or missed revenue opportunities. The time is now to upgrade to a cloud-based system.

 

Available today, Tasks on Production Hub lets you align your entire team on action items, keep colleagues and vendors accountable, and stay on top of everything that needs to be done. Contact us today to build a healthier supply chain.
