How does Siemens improve supplier relationships and support its current and future suppliers?
Speaker: Doug Schoch, Vice President, Siemens Financial Services, Inc.
Supply Chain Finance (SCF) is an important part of Siemens’ initiative to improve working capital and manage supply chain risk. Doug Schoch is responsible for the implementation and growth of the Siemens Supply Chain Finance program in North America. He will present the program and discuss the direction of this industry as a whole.
The SCFprogram makes use of a technology platform that links Siemens and its suppliers and sub-contractors to cost-effective financing. This program has been growing at a healthy rate over the past five years and is continuing to expand into different markets. The nature of supply chain, especially for a global powerhouse such as Siemens, is extremely complex. The international aspects present many challenges when bridging different cultures and countries. How does Siemens work to overcome those challenges and where is most of the growth taking place?
