Sourcemap is a state-of-the-art technology platform providing unprecedents visiblity into supply chains. Companies use custom Sourcemap surveys to trace products to the raw material origin, collect risk data, sustainability metrics, and other KPI's from suppliers and sub-suppliers, and visualize this information in an intuitive mapping interface. At the core of Sourcemap technology is a graph database that uses data from supplier networks to generate end-to-end models of global supply chains. These supply chain maps combine company-specfic indicators on sustainability, compliance, performance, and risk with data submitted from suppliers and sub-suppliers. Data is analyzed and displayed using intuititve visualization dashboards, and can be exported at any time to ERP/PLM platforms and to other software via API. Sourcemap also provides the only free and open supply chain mapping platform for consumer-facing transparency.
