Assess Swiftly.  Collaborate Successfully.  Recover Predictably.

Does your knowledge of supplier BCPs help you quickly answer questions about how long it will take them to recover production runrates?  Are you confident that your supplier will be able to recover from a worst case scenario within time frames that are acceptable for you?  Are the supplier BCPs you collected, collecting virtual or worse, actual, dust?  Do you know if they are even complete?  Can you pinpoint what the strengths or gaps might be?  Can you compare which BCP is stronger vs. weaker?  In the last twelve months, have you discussed and tracked BCP gaps and improvements with your suppliers consistently?

If you answered NO to any of these questions, then the force majeure clause in your supplier contracts should keep you up at night.

Resilinc Continuity might be a great fit if you are the kind of person who...

  • likes to be in control as much as possible,
  • prefers to address problems proactively rather than after the fact,
  • prefers to be well informed even if the news is bad because then you can go fix it.

Supplier BCPs can have serious gaps

 

Knowing these gaps is not only important, it is imperative.  Most companies do business continuity assessments of their own manufacturing sites or their contract manufacturer or sub-contractors’ sites.  However, this is grossly incomplete.

Gaining end-to-end supply chain visibility to your global partner network

40% of disruptions can be attributed to sub-tier supply chain partners. And yet, 75% of companies do not manage suppliers beyond tier 1 (2013 Penn State Study on State of Logistics Outsourcing).  Mapping the supply chain and understanding the tier 1 and sub-tier dependencies is the first step to a comprehensive program.


Resilinc Continuity is a cost-effective and efficient solution to gather and maintain reliable supply chain partner BCP intelligence and encourage on-going partner collaboration!  Not only is it efficient for you, your suppliers will thank you for the time savings and value it offers them!
