In Their Own Words: Sourcemap

Supply chain mapping is the process of engaging with suppliers to provide continuous assurance on the extended supplier network, from raw material to finished good. At the core of Sourcemap is a complex network database combining data from enterprise databases, supplier surveys and third party data feeds to automatically generate end-to-end models of the global supply chain. These models combine company-specific metrics and performance indicators on sustainability, compliance, performance and risk. A groundbreaking visualization engine renders these metrics and supply chains in real time and allow for in-memory search, filtering, analysis and reports. Companies use Sourcemap to track their inventory and supply chain cost in real time, to collect data on the upstream (raw material) sourcing supply chain down to the n-Tier, and to plan future supply chain network optimization quickly and intuitively. Data can be manually uploaded, synchronized from enterprise databases, and combined with information from suppliers, auditors, and external risk and market intelligence providers. The resulting correlations power near-real-time decision support, monitoring and event management tools for supply chain managers. The platform also allows data to be exported in real time to ERP/PLM platforms and to public-facing platforms such as on brand web pages and Open Sourcemap (, for customers to gain unprecedented visibility into the chain of custody behind products.
