Effective supply chain collaboration reduces cost, inventory, and service requirements, while improving quality, speed, and customer happiness.
Whether you have a few, dozens, or hundreds of partners—you have a platform that keeps your entire supply chain team on the same page with ease and security.
With Arena, you get flexible options for formal and informal collaboration.
Collaborate during formal review processes
Give your design partners, contract manufacturers, and suppliers secure cloud access to the product information they need. Trusted partners can participate in your change and quality processes as approvers, initiators, implementers, or any other role they provide to your business. Arena’s access policies let you enable collaboration quickly and maintain it easily for tens or hundreds of partners. Join over 1,300 customers and 1,500 suppliers using Arena around the world every day.
With Arena Scribe, your internal teams and external suppliers can share information and discuss product design and quality issues during the in-between spaces of formal processes. Like other social sharing applications, team members begin Scribe collaboration discussions on the product record and invite others to participate. Through a chat interface, distributed teams can exchange ideas and alerts keep hot topics visible.
Share product information without licensing limitations
Arena Exchange is for frequent, ad hoc collaboration with your extended supply chain. Using Exchange, simply invite your partners to collaborate around any given design or build package. They can then view, comment, or download the latest product information including bills of materials (BOMs), documents, and manufacturers’ and suppliers’ information (AML/AVL). Your partners can also invite their partners to review the same product design or build package to ensure everyone is on the same page.
With no licenses to purchase and unlimited sharing, Exchange removes all barriers and allows collaboration, whether you have Arena or not.
