Who We Are

A long-standing business relationship stemming back from early 2000s when working to reduce company expenditures using RFT and RFQ processes. I stumbled across the brain behind this highly sophisticated and advanced platform – Peter Hall – and have watched and admired his progression even further ever since. 

I believe there is no better time than now to make significant changes in the Supply Chain Management simply because of the increasing demands and complexities being placed on everyone involved throughout the lifetime of any purchased product. 

The range of products offered in the 4links SMARTplatform streamlines all of it into one efficient system. 

Downstream Suppliers Benefits

This platform is designed not only for the buyers and contract managers, but also for their suppliers to benefit from too. 

They are able to opt-in at a range of levels with the apps relevant to their business requirements, from the free basic Marketplace SRM through to a comprehensive suite of their own – and all synchronise through a secure platform to minimise against any duplication of effort when working with a range of corporations.

Suppliers can detail their capabilities, identify and be prompted into the compliances they are required to maintain at the relevant times, and improve their business operations in the process.
