Supplier Diversity is a business strategy that encourages the use of diverse suppliers in the procurement of goods and services for any business or organization. Supplier Diversity emphasizes the creation of a diverse supply chain that ensures the inclusion of diverse groups in the procurement plans for government, not-for-profits, and private industry. Statistics show that companies who embrace diversity are more profitable than companies who don’t.

Our History in Diversity

Started in 2011, supplier.io has rapidly become a prominent provider of supplier diversity solutions to leading corporations. We currently support customers in automotive, healthcare, insurance, retail, manufacturing, education, and banking. The team has a long history in driving innovative solutions in supplier diversity. We believe that companies deserve solutions that are effective and provide measurable value and results.

supplier.io acquired CVM Solutions in March 2019. CVM was originally founded in 2002 after two minority entrepreneurs, one with a supplier data company and the other with technology solutions, realized that both data and technology were needed to build a successful Supplier Diversity program. As a result, the two companies merged, and this began the vision for CVM to provide end-to-end solutions to the Supplier Diversity market.

After being under two corporate parents from 2011 to 2018, CVM got back to its roots in 2019 through an acquisition by supplier.io, a leader and innovator in the supplier diversity data and technology space.

With this  transaction, we have become stronger,  focused solely on the supplier diversity industry. Our programs provide solutions that enhance productivity, give greater insight into spending patterns and communicate the economic impact of their supply chain purchasing.

supplier.io is now better than ever.  Building on our combination of strategic planning and leveraging superior analytics, we continue to produce industry-leading solutions that support every stage of a supplier diversity program. From providing high-quality data enrichment to strategically managing entire corporate Supplier Diversity programs, we continue to innovate.
