Connor Unveils Fully Managed Solution to Mitigate Supplier and Partner Risk During COVID-19

The global impact of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is worsening by the day. Life, as we all know it has been flipped upside down, and businesses across sectors are being challenged like never before.

Crisis-induced pressures have made it difficult to ensure business resiliency among supplier and partner networks, with traditional methods to ensure compliance not adapting well to our new circumstances. In times like these, business interactions with customers, partners, and suppliers alike should be handled with empathy. And today’s typical approach to corporate communications falls short—which can sour supplier and partner relations quickly.

“Companies need to quickly understand the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on their supply chain and partners as part of their business resiliency planning to adapt to the challenges we face today,” said Viresh Chana, CEO of Connor. “The tools and resources available to partner and vendor management teams to communicate with their business partners, whether through assessments or surveys are often cold and impersonal.” 

Further complicating matters, the systems that companies are using to send emails and communication to their business partners are manually intensive and lack the comprehensive tracking and analytics capabilities to really understand how to optimize your outreach efforts.

To help address some of these challenges magnified by the COVID-19 pandemic, today Connor is launching a new offering to ConnorX, our industry-leading platform, that empowers vendors to easily engage with and track suppliers and partners to ensure seamless business resiliency.
