Dick's Sporting Goods has gone live with the ecVision supply chain collaboration platform to help improve its business agility and overcome the challenges of global sourcing.

In the first phase of the project, Dick's is utilising ecVision's factory compliance best practice module which provides a platform to document, manage and monitor data from multiple sources including internal compliance teams and third-party monitors.

With around 400 suppliers around the world, the sporting goods retailer is also hoping to maintain or even develop new levels of operational efficiencies.

The cloud-based ecVision Suite spans the entire product lifecycle from conception to delivery, and provides a single document repository for suppliers to access the host of contractual agreements and annual certifications required to support sourcing operations.
