How OCG Software’s supplier management platform underpins Yondr’s global expansion
Yondr’s journey to managing a global supply chain
year-on-year growth in the size of the supply chain
improvement in overall supplier compliance within 1 year
accurate data points captured and maintained per supplier
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.
Yondr introduced OCG Software’s supplier management platform as the trusted master record of all their suppliers.
Through the platform, Yondr’s teams can quickly and securely find, select, engage and monitor suppliers from their rapidly evolving supply chain, in full confidence of compliance and performance.
With OCG Software’s supplier management platform in place, Yondr continues to launch complex projects in new markets, knowing their local teams are only working with the very best suppliers.
Launched in 2020, 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.
“OCG Software is a critical partner for Yondr Group.
Without their 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!”
