Arigo customers now have the ability to access web-based content including the Panjiva subscription-based platform of 1.5 million companies engaged in global trade, via the Arigo Desktop. The Arigo Desktop is a one-stop, intuitive desktop and mobile portal providing access to all of the tools and content needed to power companies managing private label and global trade. Access to the Panjiva Platform through the Arigo Desktop opens a gateway to on-demand visibility into factory level data, easy access to vendor scorecards and trending Supplier Risk Dashboards.
Recent escalation in global trade regulations has driven companies to make continuous, educated decisions regarding their trading partners. Panjiva provides supplier health metrics and offers detailed credit reports, helping retailers, brand owners, and wholesalers find new suppliers and reveal risks and opportunities with existing vendors. Arigo’s strategic relationship with Panjiva demonstrates Arigo’s commitment to its customers to deliver value with increased visibility into overseas operations; analytics to fuel better business decisions; and improved collaboration with multiple trading partners throughout the supply chain.
“Our customers have strong programs in place to assure the highest quality of products are being manufactured overseas. We see our strategic relationship with Panjiva as providing access to valuable information to help simplify the complexities of private label global trade. The Panjiva Platform as featured content delivered through the Arigo Desktop, truly enhances the Arigo user experience when used alongside the feature-rich Arigo STM platform. We are pleased to announce a strategic relationship with a company that shares the same passion and dedication to deliver game-changing tools to its users,” said Donny Askin, CEO of Arigo.
