Supplier Evaluations to Assess Financial Health Become Manageable

Evaluating supplier risk can be a complex process because of the vast types of risk.  At RapidRatings, we believe financial health is the most important key risk indicator to evaluate and monitor.  Understanding the financial risk in your supply chain will help you:

  • Avoid costly impact of bankruptcy and disruption with early warning signals
  • Partner with the strongest suppliers who invest in quality product & have the ability to grow with you
  • Gain a holistic view in your supplier financial risk assessments to understand if suppliers can react to unforeseen events
  • Develop consistent risk indicators to create a common language across the entire enterprise

 

Supplier Financial Review Guide for Any Function

The Financial Dialogue is a report that identifies and prioritizes the most relevant financial questions you should be asking your suppliers and third parties. It concisely delivers the top five financial viability assessment questions as a guide for your financial evaluation.  Financial Dialogue substantially decreases prep time and effort for reviews, allowing all team members, regardless of function or financial acumen, to have a meaningful discussion with suppliers on financial health. We provide the questions – you get the answers!

 

Financial Health as a Leading Indicator for Supplier Performance

Financial health is the gateway to understanding a company’s underlying strengths and weaknesses and speaking one single language for business decisions; it provides a universal benchmark for choosing whom to partner with in the short- and long-term.  Read our Supplier Performance Case Study to understand the key results, including:
