The New Supply Chain Imperative: Ensuring Ethical Sourcing and Social Compliance
NGC’s cloud-based Vendor Compliance solution was designed specifically for the needs of apparel, fashion and footwear brands & retailers.
Vendor Compliance provides a centralized system to evaluate, manage, and report on all the details, simplifying the complexities of compliance management. With real-time data to support decisions, senior management has the information they need to mitigate risk to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives and ensure Good Manufacturing Practices. Manage the everchanging landscape of global Restricted Substances Lists (RSL) and make sure that every vendor is complying.
With the proper tools in place, you can enforce control and accountability for all suppliers, vendors, and other third parties involved in the design, manufacturing and delivery of your product to ensure compliance. By ensuring compliance you can avoid costly litigation, reduce downstream risks and costs of non-compliance, and win market share by building and maintaining a positive public image.
As part of the Andromeda cloud platform, approved vendors are included in your global sourcing strategy when allocating products in our Andromeda PLM solution. When vendors manufacture your products, their performance is monitored in the Andromeda Supply Chain and Andromeda Quality Control solutions. A Scorecard Index is generated based upon their on-time deliveries, completion rate and quality scores.
