ARCUS® SIM

The ARCUS® Supplier Information Management (SIM) module is part of the ARCUS® Supply family.

ARCUS® SIM is a central platform for collecting, storing and managing supplier data, enabling greater confidence in supplier approvals which will help reduce the risk to brand and ensure supplier compliance.

About Supplier Information Management

ARCUS® SIM allows all supplier information to be gathered and stored in a cloud-based system, with automated reminders that automatically chase suppliers for incomplete or out-of-date information. Key documents are scanned by artificial intelligence at the point of upload, delivering confidence in the supply chain.

ARCUS® SIM is a central supplier database that allows professionals to collect all information they need to know about their suppliers, and the new Supplier Management Hub functionality automates information collection directly from official data sources via APIs, especially for critical ESG and food safety information.

Case Study

Whitbread Carousel

Whitbread PLC is the UK’s largest hospitality company, owning Premier Inn as well as Beefeater, Brewers Fayre, Table Table and Bar+Block.

Its “Force for Good” sustainability program aims to ensure that Whitbread has a positive impact on all of its stakeholders and the world around them, and has set long-term strategic targets to try and achieve this. This includes collaborating with its global supply base to support efforts against climate change to ensure that every supplier adheres to its robust policies on sustainability and responsible sourcing.

Whitbread extended its use of ARCUS® Supplier Information Management (SIM) to automate, digitise, and streamline its supplier on-boarding.

Configurable questionnaires are sent to and completed by suppliers to ensure that Whitbread is collecting all the supply base sustainability information they require, and this replaced a separate standalone system.
