Supply chain summit drives collaboration, innovation and global perspective

MSPs often neglect their suppliers. At Guidant Global, we do things differently. We partner, we collaborate, we nurture. And one of the ways we demonstrate our commitment to our strategic staffing partners is by hosting our annual US Supplier Summit.

A high quality staffing supply chain is absolutely vital to any successful managed workforce solution. Quite simply, we only work with the very best and most authentic staffing partners in order to secure the quality of talent our clients rely on. In recognition of this, we host an annual US Supplier Summit, bringing together our top 50 suppliers to network with their peers, meet with Guidant Global’s leaders, celebrate our successes, and drive innovation across our hugely diverse supply chain. Every year this event just gets better and better.”

Beth Armesto, Practice Director, Supplier Relationship Management

To echo Beth’s words, we’ve had fantastic feedback from our 2019 red carpet event and would like to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone that attended and contributed to making it a success.

One of the most exciting topics in our action packed agenda was a preview of VISION, our new supplier performance analytics portal.

Shannon Marchant (Consulting, Analytics & Outsourcing) and Andy Olsen (SRM) of Guidant Global previewed this new interactive decision support system which aggregates supplier data across multiple quarters, for all of Guidant Global MSP programs and brands.

The VISION demo was met with overwhelming excitement and buzz from our Summit attendees. With this tool behind us, we’re looking forward to enhancing our supplier partnerships to drive even greater insight and results in 2019. Next step will be in-depth focus groups and testing with a small number of supply partners followed by our highly anticipated launch of the platform later this year. Watch this space!

But that’s not all, VISION was just one of the hot topics covered. We also had keynote sessions from Guidant Global President, Brian Salkowski and were joined by our Global Supply Chain Director, Ben Weston for a discussion on our global approach to supply chain management.
