London, UK (PRWEB) October 18, 2012
HICX Solutions Ltd. has spent many years of research and development to create state-of-the-art workflows, supplier data models, search algorithms, web interfaces, and processes that meet the needs of the most demanding and complex organizations. To fulfill our corporate mission, and advance the cause of supplier management, HICX Solutions announces the formal launch of its new blog - Supplierpedia.com.
In a recent study commissioned by Google with Millward Brown, it was found that 80% high growth companies across Western Europe reported improved collaboration and knowledge sharing using social media tools. With 60% of businesses globally having a company blog today, HICX Solutions sees the tremendous explosion of social media as an opportunity to further benefit the wider community of professionals in supply chain, finance and procurement through a blog committed to supplier management.
“If you look at the ‘in blogs’ out there, serving procurement and sourcing today, they tend to address supplier issues within different niche initiatives, such as diversity, performance, or risk. However, most fail to put the full supplier lifecycle challenges and solutions into the wider enterprise discussion. Our new blog, Supplierpedia.com is our latest endeavor to utilize our differentiated knowledge, products and services in supplier management”, notes Constantine Limberakis, Director of Marketing.
Supplierpedia.com will feature meaningful postings from several members of HICX’s team, ranging from implementation specialists to HICX’s own BPO project leaders. There will also be regular guest contributions from HICX clients, partners, and industry specialists to provide additional perspectives on the topics at hand.
“Experience shows us that effective supplier management requires cross-functional insight and collaboration across a number of individuals, whether it be the Chief Risk Officer, the Chief Procurement Officer, Accounts Payable, the VP of Supply Chain, or other”, says Roger Layette, HICX’s Director of Sales for North America. “With such a diverse set of objectives and corresponding pains, ranging from supplier enrollment to regulatory compliance and risk mitigation, these stakeholders are continually seeking further insight and practical knowledge as it may apply across the enterprise. Our blog offers an ideal way for us to help this community.”
“Though over 42 million blogs exist today, ranging in topics and update frequency, I am confident that Supplierpedia.com will be impactful for our industry”, noted Doug Markle, EVP of Global Sales and Marketing. “This represents yet another channel for us to share our ‘in-the-trench’ experience, from supplier management initiatives across the globe, while providing a forum for experts and practitioners to share, learn, and find efficiencies within this rapidly-changing supplier management environment. This is not an attempt to promote our company, so much as it is an attempt to improve global supplier management.”
