With rocket success in China, Japan, Europe and North America, Tradeshift has now opened its doors here in Australia.

Why? Because being boxed in is a thing of the past and you deserve to realise the true value of your investments.

Procurement and Supply Chain systems haven’t fundamentally changed since the mid-90’s and neither has their accompanying stories of ‘success’. Apart from a better UI, what else is truly different? The answer… unfortunately very little!! These environments continue to bring with them high maintenance bills, little benefits and broken promises. Did you get all your suppliers on-boarded? Is collaboration as easy as they said? Are crazy high fees holding you back? Truth be told, buyers and suppliers alike are being ripped off and we at Tradeshift won’t stand for it. A different vision brings with it a better approach and a promise that we can yield you stronger results than any other.

Our pledge to you:

  • We walk the talk – we guarantee supplier on-boarding rates and have the success stories to prove it.
  • We do business differently – one example is a whole new way suppliers upload catalogs and collaborate with you (a true network that’s free and easy and they love it!).
  • We don’t box you in – our platform is completely open and ready for your personal touch.
  • We offer more than a nice UI – we’ve built tomorrow’s platform today with the added bonus of easy-to-use functionality.

You will achieve greater results – Tradeshift will give you a far bigger return than any other solution on the market.

The time to change is now. Move beyond legacy and shake things up! The future is on your doorstep today.
