Supply chain company Suuchi GRID has partnered with alternative bank Bankamoda in order to provide supplier finances to Suuchi GRID’s vendors and suppliers in Latin America, the companies announced Tuesday (Sept. 20).

According to the release, GRID is the “modern standard” for supply chain operations built for apparel, cosmetics, footwear, manufacturing and other industries. Suuchi said it combines PLM, ERP and a global sourcing network, featuring project management and procurement functionality.

Bankamoda, meanwhile, is an alternative bank focused on flexible financial solutions for the Latin American market, offering services like invoice and purchase order financing products for supply chain needs.

The partnership will allow vendors to get Bankamoda financing through the front end of the GRID, with the user interface integrating with Bankamoda in the back end.

That will give GRID customers and vendors the benefit of the GRID’s tools to compare and evaluate costs for various payment terms, according to the release. The companies noted that this comes as there’s been much demand for Latin American production.
