With the introduction of our new Directory product, we’re proud to announce we’re working with the High Value Manufacturing Catapult (HVMC) to deliver a public database for Made Smarter Innovation | Digital Supply Chain Hub that tracks the full UK manufacturing supply chain harnessing our Real-Time Industrial Classifications (RTICs).

Building a free UK Supply Chain Directory

Our RTIC data has allowed our partners to gain a reliable view of the UK’s emerging economies, something we haven’t been able to do with traditional SIC codes alone. Generating over 350 RTICS in the past few years, our platform users and clients have been able to harness this data to map growing sectors and verticals, analyse geographic trends and use the insight to make informed decisions about our economy.

Working with some of the UK’s top institutions and governing bodies, we’ve been able to take this process one step further and allow our partners direct access to our data and technology.

In a project with HVMC and Digital Catapult, as part of the Made Smarter Innovation | Digital Supply Chain Hub, we’re proud to announce we’ve been working on a UK Supply Chain Directory that will be free for the public and manufacturing industry to use. This live database of companies and industries, tracks the full UK manufacturing supply chain using our combination of website crawling, machine learning and access to 3rd party data.
