Supplier Management

Managing risk through accurate information

We offer a portfolio of supplier management solutions that support your approach to managing risk and your need for accurate information across functions, geographies, and sectors.

Our solutions recognise the increasing need to share supplier information beyond procurement teams to support other organisational stakeholders:

  • Finance – reducing administration and resourcing costs.
  • Health & Safety – identification of standards and supplier compliance.
  • CSR / Carbon Reduction - comprehensive approach to Corporate Social Responsibility, Carbon reduction and sustainability issues in the supply chain.

Creating collaborative supply chain communities

Our business is built around collaborative supply chain communities; starting with your organisation and your suppliers and extending to other buyers and suppliers within your industry. Our portfolio of Achilles solutions operates in these online communities to reduce cost, risk, and inefficiency in your supply chain.


Reducing Costs and Risk

Driving efficiencies, cost savings and risk reductions

Using online qualification, validated 3rd party data feeds, and our team of accredited auditors, we assess suppliers' capabilities and ensure compliance with legislative and corporate standards.

Our solutions drive efficiencies, cost savings and risk reduction across your organisation's procurement activities through:

  • A streamlined approach to identify, evaluate, and monitor suppliers – using an industry-defined risk model.
  • Access to accurate and up-to-date information on supplier standards and compliance.
  • Accurate and reliable visibility of risk across your supply base for all your stakeholders.
  • Efficient collection, analysis and sharing of supplier information through our centralised community model.
  • Reduced exposure to supplier non-compliance or failure.
