Getting Through it Together
Proactively reach out to suppliers who might be at medium term risk if the crisis continues for more than 3-6 months and take steps to support them through this crisis.
Ask additional questions*
Use the functionality of your platform to ask your very own specific questions around COVID to a list of suppliers in the community. Review their answers alongside their original pre-qualification questionaire.
Mini COVID-19 PQQ
Quickly understand how prepared and responsive your suppliers and contractors are during these unprecedented times. We can send a short questionnaire to your suppliers and help to determine how disrupted they will be.
Understanding the risk
Identify and analyse sources of supply chain risk and maintain appropriate policies relating to shortages or other supply chain disruptions that are likely to occur during the crisis.
We have a dedicated team of Data Scientists on hand to help analyse questionnaire answers. You can use this insight to help understand who, where and when your supply chain is likely to be impacted.
Source and Supply
Identify additional sources of supply
As some suppliers will be more affected than others, it is important that you have identified additional sources of supply that can be leveraged quickly if your existing supply base is unable to deliver. Proactively qualifying suppliers is a positive step you can take to mitigate against disruption.
