Monitoring supplier risk: compliance, financial risk and CSR

Whether it’s for your existing suppliers or those you’re considering working with, you need to have real-time access to three key data sets: compliance, financial default risk and CSR data.

These three pillars are essential in assessing your third party suppliers and require access to numerous pieces data from multiple and varied sources, especially with third party suppliers located outside the territory. It is then necessary to aggregate all of this data in a consistent, readable and usable way.

It is therefore crucial to access reliable, recent and relevant sources in an international environment and to combine implementation and readability accessible by the collaborators who will work on supplier analysis and aggregate recommendations based on these three pillars.

Compliance data allows you to measure the reputability of your suppliers, whether or not you’re subject to local anti-bribery laws. A number of SMEs and middle-marketing companies below the thresholds of the Sapin 2 law, for example, nevertheless analyse their suppliers with the aim of reassuring investors and shareholders, customers and employees.

Often cited for customers, financial risk presents an indicator that is nonetheless essential for suppliers. The fact that some are at risk of default can create a strong risk of logistical disruption. Indicators such as Paydex or the FPI (Frequency Payment Index) offer important information that can predict the sustainability of your suppliers.

By combining analysis of the respect for outstanding suppliers (thanks to Altares’s Paydex) and the proportion of suppliers paid with a long (FPI30+) or critical (FPI90+) delay, Altares is able to anticipate the risk of default within 6 to 12 months for VSEs and SMEs and two years and more for middle-market companies large corporations.

“A company that pays its suppliers more than 30 days late is six times more likely to default within a year”

Finally, Corporate Social Responsibility will orient the way you look at your suppliers towards an ethical angle, which has become dear to your customers and investors.

Pouvons-nous vous aider ?

The problem is simple and longstanding; the reconciliations carried out for several years on the one hand, and the great diversity of the management systems on the other hand, generate multiple sources and identity data concerning the suppliers. It is therefore essential to optimise your supplier base through a common repository, which should be accessible via different solutions depending on the maturity and purchasing methods of each division or department.
With the advent of Corporate Social Responsibility and the strengthening of ethical approaches, supplier sourcing goes well beyond the simple business relationship, deliveries and invoicing. You need to be able to align your supplier line more precisely to define this sourcing as closely in line as possible with your purchasing strategy.
Initially administrative, this step has now taken on a strategic dimension, the duration of which can penalise your clients. Upheavals observed in the prices of raw materials and lockdowns throughout the world can force companies to face unusual behaviour within their supplier creation process.
Whether it’s for your existing suppliers or those you’re considering working with, you need to have real-time access to three key data sets: compliance, financial default risk and CSR data.
After experiencing a sharp increase in bank transfer fraud, more than ever optimising and increasing the reliability of supplier payment processes has become a key issue in protecting yourself from risk. These challenges are dependent on a perfectly mastered onboarding process by the teams in charge of supplier payments.
