A software solution to improve and simplify vendor assessments. Gain confidence in your vendors’ capabilities to continue supporting your business.
The failure of a critical vendor can impact a company’s ability to stay in business. The existence of a contract is not a guarantee. Organisations recognize that business continuity depends on understanding vendors’ ability to provide essential goods and services in case of an incident or outage.
Vendor Assessment simplifies the process of gathering and analyzing survey information to assess vendors. By organising large volumes of survey data, the software enables better decisions to hire or retain vendors. The module includes:
- Powerful survey tool to evaluate a vendor’s business continuity program. The survey can be used as is – or customised with additional questions or topics.
- Automatic scoring of vendors’ responses and ranking against other vendors.
- More than 40 standard reports to analyse the data, including ranking vendors within user-defined categories.
Vendor Assessment facilitates the annual data refresh by allowing vendors to review and update their information. Although the module can be used as a stand-alone tool, it integrates seamlessly with other CMS modules. Vendor ratings and other information are automatically incorporated in other elements of business continuity planning
Can be purchased stand-alone or as part of the SunGard Continuity Management Solution.
