Winners Announced for Source through Supply Chain Innovative Products Awards


SIGInnova announces winners for innovative products forum taking place at SIG Global Executive Summit

The selected products demonstrate exceptionally innovative thinking and top quality performance by the companies that provide them.

SIGInnova, in conjunction with its partner Sourcing Industry Group (SIG), has named the winning products to be presented during the SIGInnova Product Forum taking place at the SIG Global Executive Summit October 15-18, 2018 in Rancho Mirage, CA. With a mission of helping F500 procurement executives create the future of procurement, SIGInnova works with SIG’s member companies to identify areas where technology and solution gaps exist and then meet those needs with innovative, emerging products. For products selected for implementation, SIGInnova facilitates buyer-provider teamwork to reduce risks and expenses, and potentially improve performance.

Joining the four innovative products in SIGInnova’s initial cohort last March, the following (in alphabetical order) were selected for their creativity and positive impact on source through supply chain during SIGInnova’s emerging innovative products evaluation process:

ConnXus; Business connections are often hard to make due to data inconsistencies, RFP complexities, conference costs and lack of centralized business information. ConnXus empowers global procurement by changing the way buyers and suppliers connect. The ConnXus platform allows global diverse and non-diverse suppliers to create and maintain secure profiles in one place, streamlining the sourcing process. myConnXion makes supplier management and risk simple, through mobility.

Mareana can make gaining insight from previously inaccessible data a repeatable part of your business process and culture, customized to your exact needs. Mareana’s products help you discover, structure and analyze data, in any format, diving into the abyss to surface insight for you faster. The proprietary technology platform enables anyone in your company to search all of your data, even inside of images such as design documents. Once located and extracted Mareana helps you solve the toughest data challenges and apply multiple predictive models to determine your best option.

SirionLabs is transforming contracting engagement between enterprises by bringing the parties closer together across the full lifecycle of the contract – from authoring to performance to closure. Sirion’s award-winning platform’s advanced capabilities enables enterprises to effectively manage all key aspects of strategic supplier engagements – contract, performance, financial, relationship and risk management – on a single platform, driving tangible cost savings of 10% of average contract value (ACV) while reducing the cost of governance by 45%.

Each company will present the features of their product to an audience of procurement executives who have expressed interest in working with earlier stage products, assisting companies in product refinements and potentially being adopters of products that are of significant interest to them.

“We’re thrilled to add ConnXus, Mareana and SirionLabs to SIGInnova’s growing family of innovative products that have the potential to significantly upgrade the performance of Source through Supply Chain, accelerating improvements and the pace of change. The selected products demonstrate exceptionally innovative thinking and top quality performance by the companies that provide them,” said Barry Wiegler, SIGInnova’s Founder and CEO. Added Dawn Tiura, SIG President and CEO, “We look forward to helping SIG members benefit from these products and assisting the providers in reaching their potential in a more cost-efficient and swift manner.”
