A New Blockchain Based Solution for a Faster Way to Qualify, Onboard and Manage Suppliers


In these uncertain times, new supply chain realities are forcing business to urgently reassess their supply base. No businesses can afford to have inefficient supplier qualification and on-boarding processes, but any increase in due diligence risk is unacceptable. To address these unprecedented challenges, IBM and Chainyard have created Trust Your Supplier (TYS), a blockchain-enabled solution to speed the process for buyers, suppliers and external validators. Join this panel discussion to hear from IBM’s Chief Procurement Officer and other executives from from Dun & Bradstreet (D&B), EcoVadis and RapidRatings on how TYS uniquely enables efficient supplier on-boarding and other benefits.
