BSI (British Standards Institution), the UK national business standards body, has launched BSI Connect, an integrated platform supporting audit, risk governance and supply chain services.
The new tool is aimed at improving operational visibility, commercial efficiency and organisational resilience.
Organisations can choose from a range of tools to manage internal and supplier risk. Features include the ability to review audit findings, performance analytics and manage information for their critical business functions and suppliers whilst on the move.
As organisations and their supply chains look ahead to the post-Covid landscape, BSI Connect offers a multi-tiered subscription model across complementary tools to support a hybrid-working approach.
The BSI Connect audit, incident and compliance platform provides digital functionality that expands through three different subscriptions – Connect Portal for BSI audits, Connect Plus for internal audits and Connect Custom for all compliance and operation activities, depending on the organisation’s requirements.
The BSI Connect supply chain platform, Screen, enables organisations to manage supply chain risk and help protect brand reputation through the institution’s proprietary intelligence database that looks at more than 20 risk ratings in 200+ countries. This geographical risk data and analysis is embedded into the supplier assessment process and enables organisations to track compliance and risk throughout the supply chain, thereby maximising visibility so decision-makers can focus on the most critical issues.
The insight provides information and alerts on current supply chain trends and impacts. In addition, the Screen Edge subscription combines client dashboards to track supplier audits and compliance with intelligence for a holistic supply chain resilience tool.
Gary Robinson, commercial solutions director at BSI said: “BSI continues to support organisations with best practice through standards, auditing, training and consultancy to manage growth, enable innovation and build resilience.
“Our BSI Connect platform will help to inspire customer trust in our clients’ audit and compliance activities, quantify the risk of global incidents in their supply chains and manage their operational risks and performance to ensure more sustainable, resilient organisations.”
