What is SNC?SNC (Supply Network Collaboration) is a web based application used to collaborate with our direct material suppliers. The website is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. In many cases, the data is updated real time allowing our suppliers to see and react to changes in our orders quickly and efficiently.SNC enables our supplier to access our orders, create acknowledgements and ASNs (Advanced Shipping Notification) and provides additional information such as ERS (Evaluated Receipts Settlements) settlements, goods receipt dates and purchase order history.SNC allows for collaboration between Danfoss Power Solutions and our suppliers with the use of Order acknowledgements and advance shipping notifications.Who uses SNC?SNC was created to fill the need to communicate orders and forecast information to our direct material supply base for those suppliers who do not have EDI capability.

ERS or evaluated receipt settlement is a process that allows Danfoss Power Solutions to make payments to direct material suppliers without relying on the supplier’s invoice.Through the ERS process, Danfoss Power Solutions is able to self-generate invoices using internal business records including purchase order price, goods receipt transaction quantity, payment terms and the invoice date (supplier’s ASN date). Payment is made based on a two-way match (purchase order-receiving transaction) rather than a three-way match (purchase order-invoice-receiving transaction) traditionally used by Accounts Payable Departments.Who will be paid via ERS?ERS will be the standard process used to pay direct material suppliers and a supplier requirement in the United States and where permitted by law. Suppliers will be transitioned to EDI or SNC and ERS in a two-step approach.ERS on-boardingPrior to transitioning to ERS, Danfoss Power Solutions Financial Shared Service Center personnel will contact each supplier and schedule a meeting to walk through the ERS process and answer questions. An additional meeting(s) will be scheduled a few days after the transition to review the process in production and answer questions.ERS supportFor training requests, please contact ps.suppliernet(at)danfoss.comFor questions related to ERS training, the ERS process, or an ERS payment, please contact ps.ers(at)danfoss.com
Accurate pricing and goods receipt transactions are the key to the success of this process.Before beginning ERS, suppliers and their Danfoss Power Solutions Buyer are expected to do a price comparison to ensure price accuracy.Verify price and unitsSuppliers are expected to verify the price, unit of measure, payment terms and currency on a SNC Due List requirement line before shipping against that line. Suppliers must call their Danfoss Power Solutions Buyer if they do not agree with one or more of the four payment related items above.When will the invoice be created?With this change to electronic communication, suppliers will be required to provide an Advance Shipping Notification (ASN) for every shipment. Danfoss Power Solutions Receiving will compare the quantity of physical goods delivered to the quantity shipped provided on the supplier’s ASN(s). If these quantities match, the goods will be received into Danfoss Power Solutions business system. If not, a Danfoss Power Solutions Buyer will contact the supplier to resolve the discrepancy before the receiving transaction takes place. Once the goods receipt transaction takes place, the ERS invoice is created.The price and quality checks above will ensure accurate invoices and timely payments.ASN numberThe supplier’s ASN number is of key importance for Receiving and Remittance purposes. We recommend that supplier’s use their invoice number or pack slip number as their ASN number. This will aid you during the cash application process.Once a supplier is transitioned to ERS, they should not send paper invoices to Danfoss Power Solutions for direct material shipments. If special charges are necessary, please contact your Danfoss Power Solutions Buyer. If the special charges are approved, a separate Purchase Order will be issued. Suppliers will continue to invoice Danfoss Power Solutions for these types of charges.
InvoicesThe amount of the invoice is calculated using the quantity received by Danfoss Power Solutions Receiving multiplied by the unit price on the purchase order (quantity X unit price = amount paid).The ERS invoicing job runs nightly. The ERS invoice date will be equivalent to the supplier’s ASN date. Invoices are generated at the purchase order, item detail level.The invoice due date is calculated using the invoice date (supplier’s ASN date) and the negotiated payment terms.Once generated, ERS invoices are visible within the SNC tool. Suppliers may view an invoice’s status and drill into an invoice to review invoice details.Payment remittance advicesThe Supplier’s ASN and Danfoss’ Power Solutions order number will be referenced on the payment remittance advice. An invoice number will also be referenced on the remittance. This invoice number is a Danfoss Power Solutions internally generated ERS invoice number. It will not be relevant to the supplier receiving payment.
