Find the Right Community for You





Achilles is applying its successful supplier management services solutions - proven across many industry sectors and major companies - to help Pharmaceutical & Healthcare companies build their own ‘collaborative purchasing communities’ and realise the potential of their supply chain to deliver a sustainable competitive advantage - and importantly to provide protection from supply chain risk by building ‘collective immunity’ from negative supply chain events.

In order to do this Achilles takes the burden of managing your company’s detailed supplier information within a web-based community providing key information on suppliers. A range of search and filter tools allow visibility across your enterprise for buyers to review supplier details including:

  • Capabilities

  • Financial Stability

  • Geographic Scope

  • Pre-Qualified Categories

  • Regulatory Requirements
  • Quality

  • Contact Details

  • Segmentation

  • Health & Safety

  • Corporate Social Responsibility - Sustainability

Supported by data validation and maintenance processes and on-site audits, supplier information is more complete, more accurate, easier for buyers and supplier to use and provides robust due-diligence on the Pharmaceutical & Healthcare Industry supply chain.

Achilles has a proven record over 20 years of helping global organisations improve compliance against constantly evolving complex multi-jurisdictional regulation. Our solutions help to identify and manage supply and reputational risk by improving visibility through tiered supply chains. We reduce the data collection and collation burden from stretched procurement teams, allowing them to invest time and resources in areas that better deliver improved business value.

Achilles will help facilitate an approach built on experience and knowledge from other major industry sectors applied to the benefit of the Pharmaceutical & Healthcare Industry to supplier qualification questionnaires and on-site due diligence audits. This efficient model has significant benefits for the supplier community by ensuring the burden of pre-qualification and audits is undertaken only once for the buyer community. This common approach can also benefit the whole sector by improving standards throughout the supply chain and delivers real and continual improvement in areas such as Regulatory Compliance, Corporate Social Responsibility, and Sustainability.
