The old way
Managing trading relationships is costly
Buyers and sellers use many tools to do their jobs, but most of those tools are internally developed systems and they’re often not collaborative.
Lack of Security
There is no way to know where the information shared via email and Excel between trading partners ultimately ends up, or who sees it.
Every buying organization has different data requirements, formats, and systems, which causes the quality and completeness of the data as a whole to suffer.
Sharing information between trading partners is error-prone, creating unnecessary back-and-forth communications and an overall administrative burden.
The New way
Supplier collaboration, made simple
Sourcing, without all of the legwork
Powerful search capabilities help you uncover new suppliers. Filter by product categories, locations, revenue, and more.
Discover new and trending products, and quickly get the conversation started with suppliers.
Contacts, locations, and more
Always have the most up to date contact and location data available for every supplier.
Connect with existing and potential suppliers to learn more about their business or products
Initiate a connection request if you’re interested in learning more about a supplier’s products or if you’d like to set them up as a supplier to your organization.
Once a connection is established, you can message with the supplier, share requests for information, and view additional information about the company and their products.
