Mitsubishi sought to improve supplier relationships on a global basis and to offer an easy-to-use solution to interact with them. In August 2004, Mitsubishi selected Covisint’s platform to help improve sharing of information and collaborative business processes with its global suppliers. Covisint enabled Mitsubishi to provide its suppliers with immediate access to information and applications to obtain more collaborative working relationships
It was Mitsubishi’s goal to provide the supply base with every opportunity to advance performance and understanding of supplier-related requirements of its own company and its affi liates worldwide. Using a common framework and interface, Covisint’s platform globally integrated cross-functional online applications, which provided suppliers with one, single point-of-access and contact. The multi-phase agreement began with the deployment of the solution in Japan to approximately 1,200 Mitsubishi suppliers. Covisint worked with Mitsubishi to recruit the suppliers using their deployment team to access the Mitsubishi supplier portal in any one of seven languages, including Japanese.
