  • Forms builder. Fast and flexible forms builder designed with supplier processes in mind. Include intuitive and efficient interaction points for supplier and internal staff in your end-to-end processes.

  • Organizational model Standardized model which allows you to easily represent your businesses organisation matrix to be used in developing workflows, making it easy to deploy globally and provide segregation and localization at the same time.

“Data doesn’t generally excite people – it’s very foundational. But the opportunities that come from supplier data consolidation and enhancement of data can have a healthy impact on the bottom line”

Tasks and Automation

Drive efficiency in supplier workflows with intelligent automation while ensuring human input when needed.

Why HICX?

HICX is a no code supplier platform.  Every brand has unique requirements and no-code enables non-technical staff to customise the solution without the need to wait in line for scarce IT resources.  It also enables us to deliver very large-scale supplier data projects in unheard-of timeframes.

Forms, approvals workflows, alerts, 3rd party ‘punchouts,’ integrations and even the data model can be configured to your company’s specific requirements by those that know the processes – the business users – and in a fraction of the time it would take the IT department or your systems integrator to code a generic MDM solution.

HICX is only for supplier data.  We’re a domain-expert master data management provider focused on delivering real value to business users in Procurement, Supply Chain, Finance and beyond.  We don’t provide a generic Master Data Management tool to satisfy narrow IT requirements for a simple master record, but a complete solution to address the business processes that rely on supplier data.

We’ve enabled some of the world’s largest and most complex businesses to take control of their supplier data.

HICX works with the largest brands in the world, supporting hundreds of thousands of suppliers per client.  The platform is designed to handle very large data loads in minutes, essential in real-world projects where waiting for hours or even days is just not practical.

While every organisation’s supplier data model is unique, there are requirements that are common to all.  Based on the experience of implementing hundreds of major projects, we have a canonical data model that massively simplifies the mapping process, leading to more efficient projects with much shorter time-to-value.
