Some well known businesses have suffered spectacular damage to their finances because of failures in their supply chain. Reputations have been shattered by weak supplier-related practices.
Taking control of your supply chain starts with understanding who your suppliers are, how you use them, and the level of risk they pose to your organisation.
Qualsys’s supplier governance, risk and compliance management system software ensures:
- change is controlled,
- suppliers are treated as an extension of your team,
- all documentation, policies, drawings, training records, risks etc. associated with a supplier are managed
Maintain a reliable, up-to-date, and comprehensive view of supplier information, spend, performance, and risk with our supplier management module. Reducing risk and preventing leakage by ensuring supplier qualification and ongoing monitoring of performance is an integral part of your buying processes.
The module can integrate with the rest of your business processes. This means you can associate and integrate the management of issues, training records, documentation and risk in one powerful system.
Extend your internal quality management standards and processes to your suppliers.
Supplier portals enable you to manage documentation, issues, risks and actions through a custom to-do list for each of your suppliers.
It’s the perfect solution for organisations with many suppliers who need to keep on track of supplier activity.

Ensure service level agreements, targets and documentation are shared with your suppliers.
A range of reporting options makes it easy to understand your relationship with a supplier and whether you need to act.

Real-time insights into your suppliers

With your quality management software, I receive an audit report at the end of the day once quality engineers can get back onto wi-fi. The data is available, clear and correct. And we have a rather large audit, which the software copes with no problems at all. I was surprised about that!
Governance, risk, quality and compliance teams
The supplier management module provides a best practice system for managing how your supply chain is reviewed and assessed. The system instantly generates dashboards that enable you to identify issues, risks and opportunities.
The system simplifies how supplier data is captured, making the information you collect more consistent and accurate. This helps you make better buying decisions and ensure your suppliers are fully compliant.
Meet the most rigorous regulatory requirements by providing evidence that your processes for onboarding and monitoring suppliers are effective.
