A collaboration chain is a turnkey product that is put together by several companies selling their goods as a part of one product. In this way, it is easier for a supplier to find a customer and for the latter to find a turnkey solution for his challenging task.
Imagine a company that needs а high-tech solution, say an autonomous lighting system. To implement this project the company needs to purchase various materials and products for the project: lighting equipment, cables, current transformers, lithium-ion batteries, temperature sensors, an automated system for tracking the energy use, etc. This means that first of all, you need to find suppliers of all these products, analyze the offers, choose the best value for money offers, and then install all the equipment. All these processes can be simplified by making use of the collaboration chain: a turnkey offer put together by various suppliers. By the way, a turnkey lighting installation project (for agricultural companies) was the pilot in this new initiative. The collaboration chain was first presented in spring 2021 at the Innoprom Exhibition during the Big Industrial Week in Uzbekistan.
