Get startedGet in touch

Factlines helps companies map and improve their supply chain. Our efficient process for evaluating and following up suppliers helps our customers save money and time, enabling them to focus on what is most important.

We help you every step of the way.

Efficient evaluation with supply chain mapping

Supplier mapping with self-assessments is an efficient approach to understanding risks in the supply chain.

Gain insight and manage risks by asking suppliers about their business and sourcing practices.

Our digital approach streamlines the process, saving time and money.

Focused risk management
and follow-up

Prioritize your follow-up activities through supplier profiles and risk areas.

Rather than evaluating every single supplier in-depth, you can target a selection for more documentation or an audit.

Use Factlines as your tool to manage information and documentation from follow-up.

Manage reporting and
documentation

We issue a statement of supply chain compliance. Our customers use it as documentation in both private and public markets.

Use the survey report as reliable input to the annual CSR reporting.

Go from full overview to detailed supplier information in just a few clicks.

Four key reasons CSR and responsible supply chain management is essential for your business

1. Supply chains are risky. A high share of the products and services we buy have their origin in countries where the risk of breaches to basic human rights are high. All companies are expected to ensure due diligence and address potential impacts and risks in their supply chains.

2. Sustainability is here to stay. Consumers, employees and investors are attracted to sustainable companies. Responsible production and sourcing is the hub that drives positive impact forward. Supply chain mapping supports an efficient implementation of ethical guidelines and other procurement requirements.

3. Complex supply chains raise expectations.  As supply chains grow in complexity, so do the requirements for documentation, compliance and control. CSR in supply chain management ensures responsible and sound business practices. New, digital evaluation tools like Factlines help deal with the increasing work load.

4. Better relationships give better business. In order to achieve their goals and objectives, serious companies ensure that their suppliers also are committed to their high standards for responsible business. Supply chain mapping supports dialogue and improvements and ultimately transforms compliance needs into business opportunities.

Factlines standard self-assessment questionnaires are in compliance with the requirements for responsible sourcing. We also offer fully flexible surveys, tailored to fit your specific business needs.

Supply chain survey

The survey creates your supplier network in Factlines. We do the work for you; invitations, monitoring and follow-up of late replies. It is easy for the suppliers to join in and link to you. With your subscription, you can follow the survey in real time and see your network grow.

Data are confidential. Factlines is not an open platform but allows for sharing of business sensitive data between partners.

Evaluation and action plan

In the reporting session we review key learnings from your supplier survey. The risk analysis points to relevant follow-up activities. Single supplier reports are excellent starting points for constructive dialogue with selected suppliers. With the full report you have important insights about your supplier network at your fingertips. It is your basis for internal and external reporting to important stakeholders.
