At Achilles, “where insight beats hindsight”, we’re always striving to provide our clients and members with the very best in data and collected information to help them use analytics to streamline their supply chains and boost performance and productivity in every area of business.
With an Achilles UVDB membership, you’ll receive a number of benefits and perks that will help you every step of the way in maintaining an efficient supply chain. With several different packages, we can help you in various areas pertaining to your business including cyber and IT, environmental stability, ethical business, financial risk, health and safety, security, risk management, workflow tools, and more.
Once you’ve gone through registration and compliance, your membership will provide you with a number of benefits, services and solutions. Here’s just some of the ways Achilles can help you:
Our single-process system helps buyers find qualified partners and suppliers to prove their credentials easier, allowing connections to be made much more quickly and efficiently (and saving money).
Our rigorous and thorough screening process will ensure that the data collected is always accurate and up to date, making it easier for you to review it and make buying decisions.
We always work with our buyers and suppliers to carefully cater to the needs of both, ensuring that compliance standards are always met and that customers’ needs come first and foremost.
Increased visibility and more opportunity to make connections are just two of the many ways in which we can offer our members and buyers opportunities within the community and outside of it.
Using these principles, Achilles can help connect buyers and suppliers and help manage their relationships, with a focus on increased visibility, management and implementation of the supply chain using these three trusted steps:
1. Supplier sourcing and selection
2. Ongoing supplier assurance
3. Supply chain risk management
Achilles is able to provide clients with this trusted, secure and successful system because we work across 10 sectors, over 20 different countries and languages and have clients around the world, giving us the experience and knowledge necessary to work for you. We have connected the best clients in their various industries with buyers and suppliers, creating mutually beneficial business relationships that have grown exponentially. Buyers and Suppliers alike have benefited from our trusted experience and expertise; our buyers know that they’re being connected with carefully vetted suppliers who can meet their standards and needs, and our suppliers are guaranteed that the contracts they do business with have proper credentials and are up to the same high standard.
Achilles works because we focus on combining two very important elements – business intelligence and data – to create one large, complete, accurate representation of business operations. Because of this large, clear picture, business suppliers are able to get a better idea of what works and what doesn’t in their operations, giving them the ability to focus on and troubleshoot areas, improving operations where they need it, a process that will lead to better clients and longer lasting, more successful business practices.
Our unique approach allows suppliers to see themselves in their clients’ shoes, giving them valuable insight and real data to help them make smart decisions and implement logical, forward-thinking business practices to get them to that next competitive level of operations.
Analytics and data are certainly not new in the world of business, but the way Achilles approaches these things is new. Using global data validators, we’re able to provide you with unprecedented amounts of high-quality, accurate, trusted data. The data we provided is guaranteed to help you offset risk factors, improve production and working conditions and make your business more sustainable. And the results speak for themselves: our satisfied and successful clients are thrilled to work with us because we get real results. Just look at some of our own data to see for yourself the difference Achilles can make for your business.
Becoming a member with Achilles is a great idea for any buyer or supplier who is looking to make changes based on real data and insight. Rather than fixing mistakes that have already happened, why not try a preventative approach that takes real-time analytics, data and information into account, allowing you to anticipate issues before they happen, troubleshoot and fine-tune your business operations? Achilles can help you with real-time solutions, giving you valuable insight that will benefit your business every step of the way. Becoming a member today is one of the best decisions you can make for you, your team, and your clients.
Frequently Asked Questions from our Customers
Yes we can, we can assist you with any of the accreditation featured on our website. We have a 100% record of securing any of the accreditation in the first audit for all our customers for the last 13 years.
More to the point, I ask clients how quickly can you start. We can have a consultant working on your accreditation within the hour if you are ready. The only things that take time are the audit dates, these are issued to the client by the certification body so it is out of our control.
This depends on how much the client has in place already. The more they have, the easier it becomes to work on their accreditation. The gap analysis that we carry out is free of charge and afterwards will give you an exact fixed price.
The fixed price will include the following –
- Carry out all the work ( creating documents & processes tailored to your company )
- Attend the audit ( as your expert consultant ) or make the desktop submission.
- Make any corrections that the auditor may highlight to ensure that you obtain your accreditation the first audit.
Initially, we need to talk to you to carry out the free gap analysis. Afterwards, we would require you to forward all the relevant documents. After that, we can complete the work with the minimum of your input, leaving you to concentrate on doing what you do best for the company.
Yes! Let us Manage your Accreditations with Ongoing Support and Maintenance. With us managing your accreditations, your team can then focus on business growth and development. This gives you peace of mind knowing your compliance is being routinely managed by professionals. Ongoing support and maintenance avoids panic in your business when suddenly faced with an audit, knowing at all times you are well prepared.
