Regardless of what industry your company operates in, ensuring compliance in your supply chain is of the utmost importance. However, doing so manually can be a time-consuming and laborious task, often leading to incorrect data being entered and administrative errors being made. The information that companies require to be collected from their suppliers is heavily influenced by the industry that they operate in, meaning that generic supplier management systems and bolt-ons to P2P and ERP systems will not offer a comprehensive, end-to-end solution. Trade Interchange’s ARCUS® supplier management software allows professionals to collect the information they require from suppliers with tailored questionnaires, automating the supplier on-boarding process and enhancing collaboration between relevant internal departments.

Why ARCUS®?

  • Tailored questionnaires to collect required information
  • Manage supplier risk
  • Central repository for supplier information
  • Protect brand reputation
  • Streamline entire sourcing process
  • Full visibility across the supply chain

Streamlining Supplier Management in all industries

ARCUS® supplier management software, hosted in the cloud by Trade Interchange, has been successfully implemented across a number of industries, including food & beverage, healthcare, retail, utilities, publishing, and more. The ARCUS® platform currently delivers supply base confidence through a streamlined solution for, amongst many others, the likes of Sodexo, TGI Fridays, AAK, Four Seasons Health Care and Drax Power.

ARCUS® supplier management software has proven to be a success across multiple industries because of the tailored supplier questionnaires and custom workflows, both of which can be mapped to match existing business processes to ensure a seamless implementation process and business continuity. This means that businesses, regardless of industry, are collecting the supplier information that is vital to them, and the data is then stored in a central location that can be accessed by all stakeholders at any time.

Providing a complete end-to-end supplier management solution, the ARCUS® platform includes eight individual modules that can be implemented standalone, in any combination or in any order that can be categorised into three separate families; ARCUS® Source, ARCUS® Supply and ARCUS® Product.

The ARCUS® Source family includes three modules that enable procurement professionals to streamline their entire sourcing process. From tendering, running competitive eAuctions to managing sourcing projects, ARCUS® Source modules ensure that sourcing projects are run efficiently from a central location, cost savings are maximised, and procurement processes are standardised. You can find out more about ARCUS® eRFX, ARCUS® eAUC and ARCUS® SSM below.

The three modules in ARCUS® Supply enable cross-departmental collaboration across several critical supplier management activities, including on-boarding suppliers, managing contracts and evaluating supplier performance. Tailored questionnaires ensure that companies are collecting the data they require, and the fact that suppliers directly enter their own information removes the need to re-key any of this information, increasing data accuracy. These modules provide a central repository for essential supplier information, and allows for enhanced collaboration between the procurement, quality, technical and supply chain departments.

The ARCUS® Product family comprises of two modules that allow users to efficiently collect, maintain and manage critical product information, as well as streamlining the product innovation process for all relevant stakeholders. Custom workflows enable users to easily validate and approve vital product specifications, and the fact that suppliers have directly entered this information enhances confidence in data accuracy. This information is then shared effortlessly between departments, and a central database for product specifications and new product development workflows can now be accessed at any time.

Case Study

Costa Coffee Carousel

Costa operates in one of the most challenging areas in the food and beverage industry for supplier selection. Costa uses ARCUS® SIM to help the procurement team to fully assess the large numbers of documents per supplier required to confidently approve suppliers.

ARCUS® SIM provides a central repository and features a full audit trail of the actions, enabling Costa to evidence their suppliers’ sustainable and ethical credentials, including the provision of modern slavery, child labour prevention and anti-bribery policies. Industry-specific certifications such as SEDEX, and soy and palm oil sustainability credentials, amongst others, are also collected.

To ensure suppliers remain compliant, Costa utilises automated reminders and escalation workflows to ensure that certifications and policies all remain in date and valid.
