Tasks

  • Scan the inbox of a given email address for vendor/customer responses to previously sent automated emails

The OpsVeda Operational Intelligence system matches customer demand to supply (On hand inventory as well as anticipated deliveries from vendors). The soft allocation is done based on the configured criteria including the requested delivery date and customer priority. There will be cases where the system detects that the customer orders cannot be serviced on time because the stock will not arrive early enough from the vendor. On such occasions, the Bot Send Email Requests for Early Inbound or Additional Time for “Confirmed Late” Orders in OpsVeda sends email requests to the vendor requesting that the stock be delivered earlier or to the customer requesting for additional lead time. This Bot scans the replies to such emails for further follow-up action. Based on vendor/customer responses to early/late delivery requests on a purchase or sales order, the bot intelligently validates the vendor/customer responses and updates the purchase/sales order inside SAP.
