How can I identify alternative suppliers and production sites for mitigating sourcing disruptions?

Hi 

I am a sourcing manager at a confectionary plant. 

Given the current situation, I am looking for a way to identify alternative suppliers and production sites.

In case, my existing ingredient suppliers could not deliver on time.

Hi KenForest,

 

The Transparency-One platform is well-suited to help you identify alternative suppliers and production sites.

 

Transparency-One helps businesses identify their suppliers and map supply chains to enable communication with your entire supplier network. We do this through a “social network” model (think LinkedIn) that cascades from your immediate supplies to lower levels so you can connect with multiple tiers.

 

During the mapping process businesses like yours can ask suppliers to provide additional information on their alternative production sites (those that can supply the same product in case of any disruptions). This can be done via our Survey or Requirements functions.

 

All the information you collect from your suppliers is stored in Transparency-One platform and can be easily accessed whenever you need it. You can also use Transparency-One to ask suppliers for updates as needed, for example annually.
