Accelerate supplier onboarding and lifecycle management with the FHR® and Trust Your Supplier in collaboration with Chainyard and IBM

Build supplier collaboration with blockchain.


RapidRatings has partnered with IBM’s Trust Your Supplier (TYS) network to replace historically manual supplier onboarding processes with simplicity. With the help of our Financial Health Rating as a financial viability verifier, buyers have immediate access to real-time supplier data.

As the standard for financial health transparency between business partners, the FHR score and reporting provide a common framework to identify and discuss issues that can impact supplier quality and delivery performance.






The TYS Network, built on blockchain, fosters mutually beneficial supplier management and collaboration at a fraction of the cost. Each supplier has their own digital identity passport, with the ability to share it with any permissioned buyer.

Benefits to buyers and suppliers on the TYS Network include:

Buyers Suppliers
  • Scale flow of verified information to procurement and supply chain teams for faster onboarding and monitoring

  • Streamline access to FHRs for accelerated workflows

  • Eliminate redundant information submissions and processes

  • Leverage the industry standard for demonstrating financial health to grow your business
