As it pertains to our goal of assisting customers in discovering at least $1 Billion in previously unidentified spend with small and diverse suppliers in there current supply base, we are confirming that our products and services have helped clients identify $600 million in 2018.  We are proud of our current pace, and look to increase this number over the coming years.

More About the Goal

For our commitment, we aim to utilize the supplier.io Data Enrichment service to help customers find at least $1 billion in lost spend with small and diverse suppliers in current supply bases

How does this benefit the industry?: We believe that many, if not all supply chains are currently purchasing from small and/or diverse suppliers. Our objective is to identify all qualified small and/or diverse businesses not currently recognized, to help supply chain programs better understand their current supplier diversity and small business standing. This, in turn, can help a corporation develop an effective supply chain strategy for their circumstance.
