Product + Supply Chain

Let’s go on a journey…from efficiency to reinvention

In a globalized, connected world, your supply chain is the core strategic issue. You have stakeholders all along the value chain and you need to stay one step ahead of the game – anticipating their expectations, protecting your reputation and your license to operate.  Manufacturers are under increasing global regulatory and customer demands to produce products that are less toxic and perform better environmentally. Legislation emanating from the European Union, such as RoHS and REACH, and the United States conflict minerals requirements are proliferating to other geographies at a rapid pace. Conducting business in complex supply chains in a socially responsible way has also come into sharp focus.

We know there’s a lot at stake for your business.

We are passionate about efficiency gains that cost effectively embed product environmental performance into your day-to-day business activities and about leveraging gradual operational improvement in your supply chain. We’re even more passionate about reinventing and revolutionizing your entire business process. In a resource constrained world, you need to create more value from fewer resources. Radical innovation helps you achieve new results with your products, supply chain or your whole business model.

We’ve won numerous awards for helping global businesses to engage with suppliers, understand their data and manage their supply chains. We want to keep inventing. Let’s build something new together.
