Supplyframe DirectSource: Vendor Analysis (Part 2) — Deep dives on NPI, DirectSource; SWOT; Supplyframe competitors

Supplyframe competitors

Supplyframe is a very interesting provider that positions itself as a full-suite supply chain and source-to-pay solution in the high-tech electronics industry. It is one of the few providers to provide both buy-side and sell-side solutions — and do so in a way that allows it to mine, and provide, relative intelligence to each side. Plus, it is able to build a proprietary RiskRank on this data that provides more accurate risk insights to the electronic components in its database than any other risk provider on the planet (provided you know what the RiskRank means and how to use it).

Supplyframe solution

Supplyframe is a provider that resists easy classification. It overlaps several areas in the traditional source-to-pay process, yet it is also a large "niche" player that positions itself as a full-suite supply chain and S2P solution for the high-tech electronics industry.

This is because Supplyframe serves not only manufacturers but also suppliers and their distributors. By doing so, it knows which companies have desired inventory, where it is and when to serve it up to buyers in need — creating a unique supply chain solution and an industry-focused direct materials sourcing solution. Plus, it's a design solution.
