Imagine Customer & Suppliers on the Same Page

The P1ston Platform

OEMs have spent billions on ERPs and old school supplier portals, but take away spreadsheets and email, and their supply chains still break.

P1ston’s SaaS platform makes supply chain collaboration easy. Information is visible and accurate. Communications are streamlined. Operations are scalable and more efficient. Ultimately, lag goes down and decision quality goes up.

  • Communicate faster
  • Streamline sourcing efforts
  • Stay informed and in control
  • Lower costs
  • Enjoy fewer headaches

Supplier Benefits

One Platform, Many Customers. A single login allows access to all your participating customers. Say goodbye to clumsy proprietary portals

Automation & Integration. P1ston simplifies and accelerates supplier-customer workflows, including email-based access to the platform. Also, the platform integrates to customer ERPs, giving customer and supplies real-time visibility.

Information Sharing. To serve customers well, suppliers receive (RFQs, engineering drawings, solid models, data sheets) and send (material test report, deviation request, cert of conformance, etc.) electronic documents. Also, suppliers and customers frequently message each other. This all gets done via reply-all email chaos. P1ston offers file sharing and messaging in a single, shared, collaboration platform, on a line-item by line-item basis.
