Herndon, VA, - January 27, 2015
BSI Supply Chain Solutions Group announces the launch of its enhanced Supplier Compliance Manager (SCM) and Supply Chain Risk Exposure Evaluation Network (SCREEN) solutions. These risk-based solutions enable organizations to visualize and analyze global supply chain risk to effectively manage their compliance programs with unequalled precision.
SCREEN’s proprietary supply chain intelligence provides organizations with actionable, risk-based data to underpin the management of an organization’s global supply chain. With SCREEN’s expansion into social responsibility and business continuity, organizations are able to proactively analyze risk using BSI’s 20+ unique risk indicators in over 200 countries. This unparalleled supply chain intelligence service provides organizations the expanded ability to identify, manage and mitigate global threats that could affect the supply chain – in a number of areas ranging from forced and child labor, human rights, working conditions, man-made and natural disasters, and a host of other supply chain risks.
SCM’s newly enhanced automated features allow organizations to streamline their supply chain self-assessment, third party or internal audit management efforts through a single comprehensive solution. SCM is infused with BSI’s SCREEN intelligence to provide users with a deeper and predictive understanding of both geographical and individual supplier risk. SCM’s assessment builder and Corrective and Preventative Action (CAPA) features provide the capability to customize assessments and corrective actions to ensure specific corporate objectives are met. To further visualize risk, BSI has developed a customized risk builder allowing an organization to select and weight risk variables and ‘risk-index’ suppliers, transportation providers and corporation locations. This allows an organization to identify and quantify risk as their organization deems fit. SCM is a best known practice among multiple Fortune 500 companies and Trade Compliance Programs.
“In order to stay competitive in today’s global economy, corporation’s dependency and utilization of international suppliers and factories continues to grow. Protecting your brand while balancing social, security and business continuity risks with these outsourced companies is imperative. BSI’s SCREEN and SCM solutions allow firms to map, quantify and predict the hidden exposures within their global supply chain operations and trade compliance programs. The expansion into risk-based Social Responsibility and Business Continuity compliance allows firms to manage all their trade compliance programs in a single solution,” Dan Purtell, Sr. Vice President of GRC Solutions, BSI Professional Services, Inc.
