Sourcing & procurement support in a crisis

Understand supplier risk profile, identify alternative sources of supply and manage cash levels

The domino effect of plant closures and supply shortages across the extended supply network due to current COVID-19 pandemic can quickly lead to significant supply chain disruption. It will be critical to understand the impact is has on your key Tier 1 supplier order fulfillment performance—providing maximum time to work with Tier 1 suppliers on alternative plans and/or to proactively identify alternative sources of supply. In addition, supplier contracts and payment terms might need to be reviewed and it will be critical to manage accounts payable closely, balancing the supply security and financial health of your suppliers with your own stock levels and working capital.
