Supplier Collaboration

o9’s powerful EKG patented technology is expanding to tackle our clients’ sustainability needs.

Trusted by leaders across industry verticals

Leverage supplier collaboration to increase primary data collection, understand multi-tier supply networks, increase accuracy of environmental data and achieve supply chain transparency

No single party has all the required data points covering business processes and supply chains end-to-end. To close this gap, our solution enables the exchange of sustainability data and collaboration via supplier and business networks

Key benefits of supplier collaboration

Engage in collaborative planning with your upstream and downstream supply chain partners to systematically collect data in an automated / semi-automated way, share knowledge and improve efficiency

  • Acquire materials and process primary data to enhance reliability
  • Easily collect sustainability data from suppliers in collaboration with colleagues from different departments, locations and subsidiaries, instead of having to manually collect and consolidate it
  • Overcome issues of siloed environmental data that is disconnected from core enterprise planning and execution systems.
  • Maximize transparency throughout the supply chain for leaders, employees, and other stakeholders

Key capabilities

Sustainable supply chain transformation cannot be achieved by individual companies acting alone—collective action is needed to drive systemic change.

This implies the need for far greater levels of collaboration, data sharing, co-investment and co-innovation among supply chain participants. Leverage our supplier collaboration capabilities for information sharing and collaborative planning to improve visibility and alignment across your entire supply network.
