TSC Learning Center: Sneak Peak and Coming Soon

The TSC Learning Center helps users become comfortable with the framework of KPI's before they are required to submit a survey response requested by a retailer or manufacturer using TSC KPI's. 

The picture above is a sneak peak into this exclusive tool only offered by TSC.

Coming soon to TSC Learning Center:
  • Deep dive into TSC tools, how to use them, and their benefits: Users will understand the science behind Category Sustainability Profile and KPIs, as well as how to use TSC tools to assess supply chain performance and the business benefits of the resulting data analysis
  • PSN training for suppliers and others responding to surveys, as well as those sending out the surveys: Users will understand how the SAP Product Stewardship Network operates, how suppliers can register and respond to surveys requested by their customers, and how the results are displayed and interpreted on both the buyer and supplier sides
