Supplier Collaboration

A solution that actually lets you collaborate with your suppliers.

Set up your suppliers (and yourself) for successful collaboration

Traditional supplier collaboration approaches tend to collect lots of data but not do anything with it. That leaves organizations and their suppliers at arm’s length from each other – which doesn’t deliver much value, even though suppliers are critical to business and operational performance results.

Bring your suppliers into the chain

Kinaxis Supplier Collaboration enables your organization to engage effectively with suppliers and manage issues proactively. It gives suppliers a view into the state of your value chain. As a result, they can understand effect of changes early instead of scrambling at the last minute to find answers when the impact finally reaches them. Plus, you can orchestrate all your supplier collaborations using a single platform that accommodates your unique business processes, terms and conditions.
