How to Orchestrate an Automated Supply Chain

Last quarter, we released Anvyl Tasks on our platform to help you drive more accountability within your supply chain. Today, we are giving you the conductor’s seat with the ability to set your Anvyl Tasks to autopilot with Anvyl Automations. This latest release takes the manual work out of managing your supply chain and provides you a faster way to track, follow-up, and ensure accountability throughout the order lifecycle.

As an industry-first, Anvyl Automations lets you automatically create and assign tasks to your colleagues, vendors, and suppliers based on customizable rules that you set up in the Anvyl Automations panel. We combine your expertise with our technology to drive a more agile supply chain. With rule-based triggers for action-oriented tasks, we are revolutionizing how your supply chain operates through a digital experience. The solution will allow you to make your supply chain smarter with automated rules for approvals and critical action items on your orders.

Supercharge Your Tasks with Anvyl Automations

Automations are particularly useful for repetitive processes that require you to collaborate with others in your supply chain. Below are a few examples of the Anvyl Automations that are saving supply chain managers thousands of hours every year.

As a reminder, Anvyl Tasks allows you to create and assign a task for yourself, your collaborators, and/or your suppliers. If a task is created with Anvyl Automations, the platform will distinguish between this and tasks that were manually created, as shown below:
