Reduce sourcing time and effort by quickly finding similar suppliers.
The Supplier Discovery module gathers supplier capability data from numerous public and proprietary sources and maps them to your specific industry and regions. The result is the ability to quickly identify potential suppliers to augment existing capacity or replace lost capabilities.
Prospective suppliers can be identified by specific parts they produce, manufacturing processes and capabilities, quality criteria, location, and so on. This module puts global sourcing information at your fingertips, dramatically reducing emergency sourcing cycles.
