Developing its supplier portfolio is one of the direct responses to risk management in a context of environmental and geopolitical constraints.​

The health crisis has reopened the debate about the companies' level of dependence on their suppliers: location outside France, single-source situation, etc. This context, combined with the climate emergency and a marked interest in territorial cohesion, accentuates the difficulties of controlling supply risks. One of the solutions to this is relocation.

What about your organization ? Faced with this situation, do you control purchasing risks ? Is your supply chain really secure ? With the Source-to-Secure Optimizer solution, you can quickly build a risk assessment and an action plan for securing supplies to integrate into your purchasing strategy.

What types of companies is this tool intended for?

The tool is intended for all types of industrial companies: SMEs, ETIs and large groups, whether they have a structured purchasing department or not.

What types of risks are considered in the assessment?

Six types of risk are assessed: dependence, country, financial, health, CSR and market.

How does the tool work in practice?

You upload your spending data to a secure PwC cloud space. PwC experts link it to international databases to identify supplier risks. The platform's algorithm allows you to analyze your expenses at two levels: by purchasing category and by supplier. 

In addition, the solution analyzes the various risks related to your suppliers (dependency, country, financial, health, CSR and market). Following this analysis phase, our technology combined with our expertise allows you to select the suppliers at risk eligible for alternatives. A list of alternative suppliers that we have pre-qualified is then proposed to you and a summary in the form of a dashboard is sent to you. You can then view the details of each aspect analyzed (expenses, suppliers and risks per supplier).

What types of data are used to perform the supplier risk assessment?

The tool uses spending data from the company with proprietary PwC databases as well as French and international public databases
