Large, complex supplier networks make it harder to rapidly respond to unexpected events. IBM and IBM Business Partners help you reduce the time, cost and risk associated with qualifying, validating and managing your suppliers. A secure, permissioned and shared view of information built on blockchain can help you assess and onboard new suppliers up to 70% faster and avoid disputes. IBM’s global business network and supplier collaboration solutions make it easier to collaborate digitally to resolve disruptions, drive efficiencies and increase supplier satisfaction for critical order-to-cash and procure-to-pay transactions. Embedded AI capabilities such as anomaly detection, cycle time prediction and next-best action recommendations enable you to respond to supplier issues quickly — even in times of crisis.
