Achilles works to identify, qualify, evaluate, and monitor suppliers on behalf of major organisations worldwide. SQMC assist companies who have difficulty in preparing for an Achilles "Utilities Vendor Database" (UVDB) Verify audit, either through lack of time or resources. Our work in this area has been recommended by Scottish Power, who have required suppliers to be registered under the scheme.
These services, allied with Achilles' neutral stance, make the organisation a trusted partner for more than 650 of the world's largest companies, and for more than 40,000 suppliers registered around the globe.
Achilles requires suppliers to complete a pre-qualification questionnaire (PQQ) which they then verify through an audit. The audit covers Health & Safety, Environmental and Quality Management Systems and arrangements.
For small and medium size enterprises the interpretation, preparation and completion of the pre-qualification questionnaire can prove daunting, therefore SQMC provide a useful and successful service to bridge the gap – working with suppliers to identify what they do already and formalise it into an acceptable format. SQMC also work with suppliers to identify the gaps they may have and work closely with them to build into their work systems activities and actions that provide increased value to their business; as well as complying with Achilles requirements.
If you need practical, down-to-earth assistance to prepare for an Achilles audit, then don't hesitate to pick up the phone and call us for an informal chat, and to talk through your requirements. We will also be happy to arrange for you to speak to one of the suppliers we've helped!
