Use cases for supply chain operations and risk detection

o9 has access to data available to enable the prediction of various risks categorized under the ESG umbrella. This information can be used to understand the business exposure and facilitate a much faster response to increasing risk levels.

Currently companies make short term decisions based solely on cost impacts. With o9, disruption management takes both risk detection and sustainability information into account to guide supply chain professionals to sustainability aware decision making.

Procurement decisions are mostly based on financial data and supplier assessments, which are often lagging behind on a timescale, as data is only reported periodically. They also fail to include incidents at suppliers, such as strikes, imposed sanctions, human rights violations, or fires, etc.

Sustainable procurement capabilities aid sustainable sourcing decision making by using ESG risk scores for supplier sourcing selection process. This includes leveraging 3rd party data providers and integrating historical information for risk prediction, detection and real-time alerts.

Monitoring ESG risk levels

Extreme weather patterns, and geopolitical events that result in changing tariff, trade and tax policies are occurring with even greater frequency.

These changes can put continuity of supply at risk and may require changes in sourcing and manufacturing policies., Both weather-related events and geo-political events can have significant financial impacts.

These risks need to be integrated into a holistic outlook for monitoring and mitigating risks.

Our platform allows for flexibility to specify risk categories and their key indicators. It continuously monitors the news-feed, flags and sends the alerts as configured.

Each sector, each company can customize categorization and indicator priorities and preferences.

Enterprises are one of the largest consumers of the Earth’s precious resources. If your planning processes are poor, you use many more resources than you need. IBP is key to ending this practice and meeting your company’s goals. It is both smart for your business and positive for the planet.
