“Our goal is to have the diversity of our workforce and our supply base mirror the communities that we serve. One way we do that is through Independence’s supplier diversity program, which has been in place for over 30 years.

By using apexportal, we were able to identify an additional $1 million in recurring diverse spend. Now, apexportal helps us confirm diversity status as suppliers are onboarded and alerts us to any change in the business.

apexportal is a great enhancement to our supplier diversity program. This is a platform that works for us.”
