Pre-built assessments and analytics for transparent, responsible supply chains
Santa Cruz, CA: SupplyShift recently released their SupplyShift Essentials solutions that allow companies to quickly align responsible procurement strategies with best practices in their industry. Each Essentials solution comes complete with ready-to-send assessments, built-in scoring methodologies, and pre-built analytics dashboards, all designed to streamline progress toward a company’s specific goals for supply chain responsibility and risk management.
“Responsible sourcing has become a requirement for brands, especially for their Millennial consumers who drive the majority of consumer spending,” said Alex Gershenson, CEO at SupplyShift. “Customers are demanding responsible sourcing, and companies are expected to know the details of their supply chains to ensure that their suppliers maintain the same socially and environmentally responsible sourcing standards that they do.”
In today’s connected world, the reputation of a company depends on the practices of all their suppliers – all the way to the source. SupplyShift provides a cloud-based platform to seamlessly gather intelligence about supply chains and the analysis tools critical to make informed procurement decisions. While many organizations understand the need to implement responsible sourcing strategies, they often struggle with putting in place systems or processes to accomplish their goals. SupplyShift Essentials provides a high quality, simple, and low-cost entry point for responsible sourcing.
Through strategic partnerships, SupplyShift has initially made available five standard Essentials solutions specific to various industries. The most recent one is the SupplyShift Coffee Library, which is a suite of purpose-built solutions for coffee supply chains designed in collaboration with leading industry groups and advisory partners. The other current Essentials solutions are: The Sustainability Index (TSC) Essentials, Paper, Pulp & Packaging Essentials, Labor and Modern Slavery Essentials, and the Non-GMO Project Essentials. Additional Essentials solutions will be made available over the coming months in apparel/textiles, sugar, and other sectors.
SupplyShift provides a comprehensive network to seamlessly gather and analyze supplier and supply chain data, connecting companies to de-risk and improve supply chains while helping brands build sustainable supplier networks that are both consistent and responsible. SupplyShift’s cloud-based platform allows for reliable data management and performance measurement, secure traceability for supply chain transparency, and improved collaboration throughout the entire supply chain. We believe that, when properly managed, a company’s supplier network can deliver incredible value for the company, the greater economy, and can play an important role in changing our world for the better.
