Thales creates secure aerospace supply chain


Thales has announced the launch of IVEN, a digital marketplace for the sale of spare parts for the aerospace and defence sectors, including fasteners, electrical, electronic and mechanical components, and manufactured materials. The system is intended to make purchasing processes faster, less expensive and simpler, with traceability for parts – and with Thales’ security technologies ensuring integrity and confidentiality of data and communications.

IVEN acts as a third party that connects customers and certified suppliers via a single interface. The system captures, indexes and compares the best offers on the market to provide immediate access to relevant decision criteria such as price, availability, and compliance with specific industry requirements. The process is claimed to offer buyers greater transparency and agility in their purchasing processes.

The IVEN online marketplace is now live and open to sellers. The service will be available to customers from January 2020.
