An innovative supply chain ethics, integrity and compliance risk management solution

Organisations can be caught off-guard when the bad behaviour of their suppliers brings negative attention and customer backlash. The trial by media can often lead to significant reputational damage. The question that you need to ask is how to get the supply chain transparency that you need to truly understand the integrity risk that suppliers represent?

  • Supplier Integrity® is a dedicated risk-management system that allows you to assess potential suppliers for compliance, integrity and reputational risks, so you know when to walk away – and when to run
  • The onboarding process provides a comprehensive audit trail of steps taken to identify, assess and remediate any concerns, giving you the comfort of proof of process and a defensible position if anything goes wrong
  • Designed to automate compliance and integrity risk assessments of suppliers while easily integrating with your existing tools and processes

Automate risk assessments

Assessing and managing supplier risk can be complex and resource intensive. With Supplier Integrity®, both compliance and procurement professionals work with one consolidated view of supplier risk data, enabling them to make better-informed decisions.

Integrate with your systems

Supplier Integrity® integrates with vendor-management and resource-planning systems to provide governance and formally manage ethics, integrity and compliance risk-review processes, and provide the real-time status of each supplier risk assessment throughout the onboarding process.

Identify risks that are relevant to you

Unlike the ‘check-the-box’ compliance approach, Supplier Integrity® calculates a specific risk score for each potential supplier by assessing the information about that supplier against the unique integrity risks that are relevant to your business and industry and the relationship with the supplier. 

Protect your business

Leverage our proprietary risk-assessment methodology to protect your business from ethics, integrity and compliance risks.

Bring transparency

When a risk appropriate level of assessment is conducted during supplier onboarding, potential risks are identified and become known. This transparency allows you to proactively monitor suppliers and take necessary action in the face of disruptions.

Improve team efficiency

Not all suppliers require the same level of scrutiny. Supplier Integrity® takes a risk-based approach to the onboarding assessment process so that stakeholders are not wasting time on unnecessary assessment tasks.

Traditional procurement processes do not consider ethics, integrity and compliance risks in the supplier evaluation process, and that puts your organisation at significant risk.

Supplier Integrity® has our proprietary risk analyser built in, which displays an individualised assessment across several risk areas for each supplier. The risk score allows suppliers to be assigned to risk tiers and supports a risk-based onboarding programme for assessing compliance and integrity risks.

Prepared for supply chain disruptions

Supplier Integrity® gives you the tools to rapidly assess the business continuity of your suppliers, and efficiently pivot to alternative sources with confidence in the integrity and compliance of new suppliers.
