Solutions

For Scheme Providers

Your Scheme’s
needs

Fortius provides an array of services for established and emerging supplier assessment schemes. We can tailor our solution precisely to fit your needs, providing you with a white-labelled technology platform or helping you fully manage your scheme end-to-end. Our solutions eliminate the hassle of maintaining a large in-house procurement team and various manual processes to carefully administer supplier questionnaires, pore over supplier data, and verify each response. Instead, with Fortius, scheme providers can utilise our leading technology platform to collect, view, and analyse supplier information; our verification services to assess the accuracy of supplier information; and our call centre / support team to field questions and troubleshoot with scheme participants. We can run all or part of your scheme for you, from behind the scenes.

Scheme Design

We’re also one of the foremost thought leaders in scheme design. We’ve started and worked with over a half-dozen of the largest supplier assessment schemes in the UK – including Constructionline and the Railway Industry Supplier Qualification Scheme (RISQS). As a result, we know better than just about anyone else what works and what doesn’t when trying to accurately and efficiently assess suppliers and get your scheme off the ground. Whether or not you choose to outsource all or part of the process to us, we can help you with every aspect of scheme design, including formulating the perfect question sets, recruiting buyers and suppliers, and managing conflicting requirements.

Platform

If you wish to retain control over the verification, design and support of your supplier assessment scheme, but need a technology platform to deliver it, our Fortius Network platform offers the perfect point solution.

The next-generation Fortius Network platform covers the core functionality you need from a supplier assessment tool – administering questions and collecting responses and information from your suppliers – while also providing a host of value-added functions wrapped around it.

While our platform can collect and crunch supplier information, you will still need to decide on a verification approach. You could elect to verify the information you receive from suppliers by yourself through your own in-house resources, or you could opt to outsource the verification process to Fortius. If you’re considering verifying with us, see how we can help.

Platform and Verification

If you’re looking for both a technology platform to deliver your scheme and a reliable third-party to verify supplier information, then our bundled Platform and Verification offering is likely to be what you require. With this offering, you can utilise our Fortius Network technology platform to collect, view, analyse and manage supplier information and our in-house Verification Services to assess the accuracy of supplier responses on an ongoing basis.

Our Fortius Network platform provides market-leading functionality for supply chain risk management, including risk-scoring, analytics, custom reporting, project management, tendering, managed lists, and much more. Meanwhile, our Verification Services leverage both public and private datasets, as well as the expertise of our verification team, to efficiently and accurately verify every piece of information and documentation a supplier provides.
