The large amounts of information flowing between suppliers, delivery teams and contract and procurement specialists, means that contracting, and managing your vendors and suppliers can quickly grow in complexity. Unfortunately, organizations can no longer rely on traditional tools, like email, file sharing apps, or legacy extranets, to manage this complexity. Control over important files is lost, important updates and tasks become buried in inboxes, and data security can quickly be compromised.
Huddle overcomes these challenges, making it simple to maintain control, manage access to key documents, ease the contracting process, improve ramp times, and build stronger partner relationships.
"EDF Energy uses Huddle to manage new vendor bids and to keep existing partners connected to important project files."
