Yazaki Europe Ltd. chooses SupplyOn as its strategic partner for Supplier Management

Yazaki Europe Ltd., the European subsidiary of Japanese company Yazaki, has opted for SupplyOn as its strategic partner for supplier management optimization. The company plans to introduce SupplyOn’s solutions to nine sites across Europe and to integrate around 120 suppliers.  The company is currently introducing the SupplyOn Project Management solution. It enables the planning of development projects in a structured manner using the standardized APQP (Advanced Product Quality Planning ) method while facilitating the integration of suppliers, and allows these projects to be processed transparently. Additionally, Yazaki will use SupplyOn to exchange forecast delivery schedules, delivery and transport data, and bills with its suppliers. “Our business strategy is to concentrate on our core competences. This is why we chose SupplyOn as our strategic partner for supplier management”, explains Salim Siddigi, Chief Information Officer at Yazaki Europe Ltd. “It makes sense to use an established partner when it comes to standard processes. In addition, SupplyOn comprehensively covers all relevant processes with suppliers. The key advantage for us is that we benefit from the immediate availability of solutions and it saves us from having to carry out a time-consuming, high-risk IT project.”
