What is SCSN?
The Smart Connected Supplier Network (SCSN) is the digital platform for the manufacturing industry that digitises the entire order process in a market-standard way. In the SCSN network, we can exchange price notifications, orders, order confirmations, delivery notes and invoices.
By using the SCSN market standard, we can connect different IT systems with a single connection.
As a result, you as a customer no longer have to make separate and expensive 1-to-1 connections, but rather a single connection with SCSN is sufficient to do digital business with your customers and suppliers.
What benefits does SCSN offer you?
Besides the traditional EDI benefits, the SCSN offers you even more digital convenience; with just one connection you can communicate easily and securely digitally with not only MCB, but with the entire supply chain.
The SCSN is not only a communication standard, it is also a network that is set up in accordance with the four-corner model. All service providers are interconnected. This means that every manufacturing company, regardless of which service provider the manufacturing company is affiliated with, can communicate with all other manufacturing companies within the SCSN network. Joining the network is comparable to taking out a subscription with a mobile telephone provider. You choose a provider that suits you best and can then reach everyone, regardless of which provider your contact uses.
When you are a member of the SCSN, you not only benefit from the following EDI benefits:
• You incur fewer costs because you further optimise the purchasing process
• Scalability by optimising the order-to-cash process
• Reducing errors and failure costs through the digital way of communicating
• Less dependence on your contact person by always having insight into our current product prices
• The possibility to calculate and order in your system 24/7
• Increased productivity
But also these SCSN benefits:
• Digital communication with the entire supply chain
• Traceability of materials in the near future
• IT system is directly linked to the systems of your supplier and customers
• One connection for the entire manufacturing industry
• One fixed rate
A unique network
One single data standard for the entire supply chain previously did not exist. With the arrival of the SCSN, the chains of companies in the manufacturing industry will for the first time become even more efficient and effective by means of one standard for the entire chain. The purpose of this network is to make the entire manufacturing industry in the EU more competitive in this way.
