It’s clear now that increased connectivity between buyers and suppliers, and the flexibility this enables, would have helped enterprises sail more smoothly through the pandemic. As outbreaks forced closures that disrupted supply chains worldwide, the ability to pivot quickly, access much-needed cash flow, and collaborate in real-time became critical.
In this panel, John Carles, Tradeshift’s SVP of Product, and Subrata Govil, Senior Director of Product Strategy, Tradeshift, discuss the value of being part of a network and why connectivity is just the starting point for building agile supply chains that deliver real value to buyers and sellers. Jason Busch, Founder of Azul Partners and SpendMatters, hosts.
“Supply availability across the board, from metals to resins to any type of finished part at any price, is in question right now. We live in very interesting times as trading partners.”

“What global companies realized is that their standard manual processes broke down when people couldn’t be at work, when they couldn’t physically access the factories and offices.”
-- John Carles, SVP, Product, Tradeshift
“One of the goals of a digitized platform is to enable deep trust in the buyer/seller relationship. Then we can build upon that base information through our transactional data to enhance and better inform buyers and sellers across the supply chain funnel.”

Product Strategy, Tradeshift
