THE CHALLENGE
 

Managing a Rapidly Expanding Supply Chain

 

Yondr introduced our supplier management platform as the trusted master record of all their suppliers.​

 

As record holders for the fastest development of a hyperscale data centre, it’s no surprise that speed is core to Yondr’s business strategy.

However, rapid global expansion comes with huge risks. Yondr needed a simple and cost-effective way to manage a rapidly expanding supply chain across new and unfamiliar markets.​

About Yondr


Yondr is a developer, owner-operator and service provider of hyperscale data centres.

Yondr aims to meet businesses’ growing demand for data centre capacity and technical real estate with its scalable, high-performance data centre services.

THE SOLUTION
 

Manage a Rapidly Expanding Supply Chain

 

With Canopy, Yondr’s teams can quickly and securely find, select, engage and monitor suppliers from their rapidly evolving supply chain. All in full confidence of compliance and performance.

Yondr continues to launch complex projects in new markets, knowing their local teams are only working with the very best suppliers.

Yondr now onboard all suppliers through Canopy giving them total confidence that all compliance standards have been achieved.​

Canopy integrates with Yondr's ERP system, ensuring it is maintained with the latest supplier information. Vendors are automatically put on hold in the event of a non-compliance incident.

With a trusted record of the supply chain at their fingertips, Yondr's buyers are now able to tap into the latest site-specific assessments, diversity and sustainability information. And that empowers the best possible supplier selection decisions.

Canopy by OCG Software is a critical partner for Yondr Group. Without the platform, we wouldn’t have a clear view of supplier compliance across our supply chain, which means we wouldn’t be able to grow as quickly. It’s that simple!”
