Supplier management today is comprised of several complex tasks, where augmenting, or validating, against external information is often required for even the seemingly most basic process. As such, flexibility is needed for any enterprise seeking efficiency within their supplier management initiatives. However, too often organizations get bogged down in their information collection and data validation efforts, since they have no effective or scalable way for managing these processes internally.
As part of this latest announcement, HICX Solutions’ Chief Technology Officer, Hassan Ismail, stated, “In our experience, we have witnessed the continued need to solve point issues, as current systems prove unable to adapt to the ever-changing supplier management needs. From the onset, we’ve ensured our platform was designed in a manner that enabled quick adoption of new processes, or needs. We are very excited about providing our customers with these cost-effective solutions that allow them to ensure tax compliance, stay abreast of potential supplier risks, and enhance their supplier profiles from third party sources.”
