BOSTON, MA, February 16, 2021
eShare, a global external collaboration software company, today announced it has been selected by SDI for incorporation into its Supplier Catalog Management service to lower the cost and improve the quality of its supplier data collection process.
SDI, a market leader in Digital Supply Chain Solutions, had expanded its services to include over 6,000 suppliers, necessitating a higher level of automation around the collection of product descriptions for inclusion in eProcurement catalogs. SDI’s existing SFTP-based approach to file collection, and all other file transfer solutions it considered, did not provide the ease-of-use that the suppliers demanded.
eShare was able to provide SDI with two vital components for its Supplier Catalog Management service. First, eShare allowed SDI present a simple, SDI-branded web portal for suppliers to upload files containing product descriptions, while eliminating the need to pre-provision supplier accounts. Second, eShare allowed SDI to leverage its user’s familiarity with Microsoft Office 365, with uploaded files stored in SharePoint Online.
“We are delighted to contribute to SDI’s innovative supply chain solution and share their commitment to delivering a great user experience to their suppliers”, says Nick Stamos, eShare co-founder and CEO. “eDelivery and eCollection of documents is a fast-growing part of our business as business transformation projects begin to focus on file-based workflows that involve suppliers and partners.”
“eShare simplified and improved the quality of our data collection process.”, says Ron Fijalkowski, SDI’s SVP, Digital Supply Chain. “It’s modern and simple UX allowed us to quickly implement and secure our partnerships with our suppliers and continue to innovate our Digital Supply Chain Solutions”.
