e-Sourcing since 1998
Allocation Network GmbH was founded in 1998 by today’s managing partners Andreas Prohaska, Bernhard Soltmann and Andreas Vollmann.
Already in the first year, the first version of the software was used to picture purchasing and negotiating processes of companies.
E-Auctions since 2000
In the year 2000, we carried out the first auctions in the automotive supply industry with ASTRAS and thus extended the functionality of our software with dynamic negotiating aspects.
Supplier Management since 2003
2003, we have rolled out integrated supplier management systems for the first 2 customers. During this time, the foundation stone for today’s portal was laid, an integrated supplier management and sourcing system, which is now available to our customers on the basis of the most modern web technologies in Release 6. x.
Collaboration since 2013
The year 2013 stood in the sign of standardized communication work-flows. Through the introduction of the modules collaboration, our customers are able to model communication processes in the area of supplier development, quality management and internal release processes.
