Our Initiative

The mission of ConnXus is to be the go-to connector between corporate buyers and suppliers. We make it simple and easy for them to do business with one another. ConnXus supplier management software solutions simplify the complexities of global supply chains and allow buyers to achieve their goals of responsible and sustainable sourcing.

Our Story

Like all innovations, ConnXus was born out of frustration.

As the founder and managing partner of consulting firm Accel Advisors and former chief procurement officer, Rod Robinson worked with Fortune 1000 companies to improve or create supplier diversity programs. Time and again, he heard from corporations how challenging it can be to identify new, quality, diverse suppliers. Likewise, he heard from small business owners and diverse suppliers how difficult it can be to share their qualifications or develop relationships with purchasing officers at large companies.

Like his clients, Rod found himself frustrated with incomplete databases, fragmented resources and expensive software. So he set out to create a more complete, convenient and cost-effective solution to meet the needs of both buyers and suppliers.

In 2010, ConnXus was born. We are a Certified SBE.

What Our Clients are Saying

The Account Managers have done a great job at setting goals and providing the materials needed to successfully onboard and transition suppliers to the tool.

The team was very helpful in conducting online trainings for our suppliers and to continue to offer it if the suppliers are in need of assistance. The previously recorded training and Dell Quick Start Guide for ConnXus are very helpful and I share them with every supplier.

The impact that Brown Forman is striving to make in our supplier diversity program is to really impact the communities in which we live, serve and work. We believe we can do that by increasing spend with minority suppliers. For us to get traction, we needed to roll out our supplier diversity program to all of our employees. ConnXus, being on a desktop and mobile, allows our employees to easily look in the database to find minority suppliers.
