  • Anytime, anywhere support with industry-leading service level agreements and availability.

“Innovative, high-growth companies like SGM and NextEV recognize the need for a single, global platform to meet their next generation supply chain needs,” said Steve Asam, CTO, Covisint.  “We are proud to expand our global platform to enable the first and only Automotive Exchange to be hosted in China.”

Established in June 1997, SAIC General Motors (SGM) is a joint venture between SAICMOTOR and General Motors, and is the largest automotive OEM in China.  Today, SGM is a multi-brand company with more than twenty product lines, including the world-renowned Buick, Chevrolet, and Cadillac brands, covering the luxury, compact, sedan, MPV, and SUV segments, as well as hybrid and electric vehicles.  They expect over 5,000 suppliers to be connected to the platform in the near future.

Covisint was recognized as supplier of the year by SAIC GM in 2016 and was the sole IT supplier to receive this award.

NextEV is the newest Chinese electric vehicle OEM headquartered in San Jose and has over 2,000 employees across 12 countries.  NextEV released the NIO brand, as well as model EP9 as the first ultra-pure electric vehicle in China on November 21, 2016.
