Companies in the healthcare sector often have long and complex supply chains, meaning that managing these and ensuring compliance throughout the supply base can be a difficult and time-consuming process. By the very nature of their business, healthcare companies source ingredients, products and services from across the globe to ensure best value and quality to customers from a large number of suppliers often operating in countries with different legislation to their own healthcare operations. This can result in a substantial amount of administration, including paperwork, telephone calls and emails to suppliers to highlight and verify supply chain risks.
Trade Interchange’s ARCUS® supplier management software enables sustainability professionals within the healthcare sector to request and collect large amounts of information to verify evidence of sustainable practices and certifications from potential suppliers and the products they supply. Examples of information include sustainability policies, environmental policies and certificates, evidence of membership of organisations such as the Roundtable for Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) and Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), or suppliers’ policies on sustainable cotton and recycled plastic.
