What partnering with us means to our clients.
Alcumus provides visibility and insight into the compliance levels across our supply chain, this helps us to raise standards across both suppliers and contractors to underpin the future growth of our business.
Using the SafeContractor platform means that we can mitigate risks by working only with professional suppliers with a full audit trail of compliance, as well as reducing the admin burden of managing contractors.
The fact that SafeContractor accredit contractors for the specific type of work that they do, and how they do it, made them very appealing to work with.
Rendall and Rittner
It turned out that many of our contractors already held SafeContractor accreditations, which made onboarding really easy, but now we can have visibility of this information in the online portal. The process is already delivering tangible results.
SUPPLY CHAIN COMPLIANCE
Why choose Alcumus?
Everything you need to know.
It’s estimated that as much as 80% of an organisations spend and risk comes from its supply chain.
Manual solutions like Excel or paper-based documents are subject to user error and lack the ability to collaborate effectively.
By using our accredited and verified members, you can ensure complete visibility of the contractors and suppliers that you use through the client portal.
Dashboards give you an instant view of your existing supply chain, and furthermore you can access new contractors and suppliers from the 39,000 approved members globally.
This means you can make informed decisions about the suppliers you work with, and you will have a full audit trail of compliance should the HSE visit. You can make and share notes with your colleague’s post-project for continuous improvement.
Building on 20 years of experience, your contractors and suppliers will submit a dynamic and risk-based questionnaire so that they only answer questions that are relevant to them.
For contractors, recordable safety incident rates are typically three times higher compared with permanent staff. As a founding member of Safety Schemes in Procurement (SSIP), Alcumus has been providing robust risk mitigation for many of the largest organisations in the UK through our SafeContractor assessment. The SafeContractor assessment goes beyond the core SSIP criteria to assess not only what a contractor does, but also how they do it – allowing your organisation to make an informed decision about the level of risk. No other provider offers this.
This has been expanded for low risk suppliers, who don’t need the same level of accreditation or health and safety, but still need to be verified against criteria for modern slavery, sustainability, data privacy, financial due diligence and more.
Importantly all SafeContractor accredited and SafeSupplier verified members are accredited to the same benchmark of compliance to be as clear and simple as possible.
Each client organisation will have its own motivations for working with Alcumus, increasingly organisations need to demonstrate that their supply chains are free from modern slavery, have environmental policies such net zero, promote diversity, anti-bribery, data privacy etc.
The SafeSupplier verification and SafeContractor accreditation offers this as standard, many other SSIP providers do not.
Our team takes the hard work out of chasing suppliers for documents, PQQs and insurances.
Typically, this frees up around 1200 hours of admin per year for your organisation, so you can focus on more pressing areas of your Health and Safety and/or Procurement plans.
As the leading community in the UK, on average 50% of contractor lists supplied are already members. This means instant visibility into your supply chain, and the onboarding process for the remaining 50% is very straight forward.
Your dedicated customer success team will help you on your compliance journey.
The team are on hand to provide regular reviews, training and awareness, communications and events, support with onboarding, and chase up contractors and suppliers on your behalf.
Alcumus offers unrivalled 1-2-1 support for contractors and suppliers with the largest team of in-house friendly and personable auditors.
The questionnaire is dynamic and risk-based, so that your contractors and suppliers only answer questions that are relevant to them. Guidance and templates are also available to ensure polices meet the client expectations.
There is also a whole host of discounts and benefits to contractors such as free health and safety advice and discounts on PPE, materials, fuel, insurance and more.
Many SSIP providers claim to be a leader – but Alcumus is the only company in the UK to be independently awarded ‘leader’ status for contractor management by independent analyst firm Verdantix.
