Reading time ( words)

Flex, a leading sketch-to-scale solutions company, has announced a strategic partnership with Vantage Point Analytics, a SaaS based security solutions company that provides mobile threat intelligence to secure supply chains and products—anywhere at any time.

Supply chain fraud is costing companies revenue and, until now, there has been limited visibility into supply chain fraud. VPA provides supply chain fraud visibility, end-to-end and in real-time, enabling companies to proactively monitor their supply chain.

"Verify," VPA's flagship security solution, is an industry leading, cloud-based security offering that enables companies, along with their distributors, channel partners, end customers, service centers, and any other authorized entity or personnel in their supply chain, to authenticate a product anywhere—at any time. Verify also provides track and trace of any consumer or enterprise product across the entire supply chain. Additionally, the SaaS application immediately identifies and escalates supply chain fraud in real time, and proprietary state-of-the-art analytics deliver intelligent insights around supply chain governance that is critical to a brand owner.

Gus Shahin, CIO at Flex, stated, "Vantage Point Analytics provides a critical, real-time fraud detection solution, delivering actionable security intelligence across the entire supply chain."

"The ability to identify and analyze supply chain fraud instantly through a mobile application will help companies manage their businesses more efficiently and effectively," said Paul Ortiz, CEO at Vantage Point Analytics. "Our vision is to provide every brand owner with full visibility into their supply chain, and the power to eliminate fraud wherever it manifests itself."
