to develop streamlined supplier data system for the construction industry
Achilles Information, the global leader and partner of choice for supply chain risk and performance management, today announces a partnership with Causeway Technologies, the largest specialist software provider to the UK construction market.
As of today, customers in the construction industry who are registered with both Achilles and Causeway, will now be able to access over 45 data points including supplier details, commodity codes, insurances, audits and certifications, using the Causeway solution to access Achilles data.
A single point of access to standardised information results in a more holistic view of the supplier; this improved insight and live data ensures there is more consistent information at key points of the supplier relationship. Whether onboarding or managing RFPs, suppliers and buyers can manage information from one standardised source, rather than accessing multiple systems with different types of information.
Doug Aris, Head of Construction at Achilles, commented: “The partnership between Achilles and Causeway represents another step forward in evolving and embedding better risk management, higher standards and more efficient procurement processes in the construction industry.
“From standardised pre-qualification question sets to procure to pay (P2P) processes, we’re collaborating across the construction industry to create cost effective, end to end processes that promote high standards and reduce the admin burden for suppliers. Together with market leading partners such as Causeway, Achilles is leading the way in developing a Common Assessment Standard that is efficient and accessible for everyone.”
Rebecca Sperti, VP, Trade, Causeway Technologies commented: “At Causeway, we understand that now, more than ever, boosting construction productivity is key to supporting the UK’s wider economic recovery. Partnering with Achilles will allow our customers to streamline their procurement processes, allowing them to work more efficiently and enabling them to fully embrace the benefits of data sharing through the Common Assessment Standard.”
