Understanding your vendor network is crucial for efficient operations and risk management. Vendor locations matter because they impact transportation costs, lead times, and regional regulations. If your vendors are in unstable regions, you might face disruptions during natural disasters or conflicts. Balancing concentration ensures resilience, allowing you to pivot in difficult times. Having precise vendor details streamlines communication and coordination. A well-mapped supply chain ensures smoother operations.
Location Awareness provides a dashboard of actionable insights around vendor locations.
The purpose of Location Awareness is to help you answer all of the following supply chain questions:
- How many vendors do you have, and what are their available locations?
- Where do your vendors operate and what is your country concentration?

- Which vendors are you missing location details for?
Location Awareness allows you to drill into details about your vendors across your global supply chain. You can see their spend alongside their locations and site types. You can see live weather at their sites which may impact your supply. You can see the details of their locations and how to contact them if you suspect issues may arise or you want to reach out to discuss sourcing options.
