Improve supply chain control with Factlines

We have the tools and expertise to get you started quickly and without effort.

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.

Mapping

Supply chain mapping with self-assessments is an efficient approach to understanding risks in the supply chain. Gain insight and control by asking suppliers questions about their business and sourcing practices. Our digital approach streamlines the process, saving time and money.

Risks and reporting

Prioritize resources through performance and risk profiles. Rather than evaluating every single supplier, you can target a selection for more documentation or an audit. Supplier reports are useful for dialogue. Survey reports can be used for CSR reporting.

Documentation

Many companies combine surveys with requests for documentation. Certifications and test results are some examples. Our advanced document room handles sharing and management of documentation in an intuitive manner.

Any surprises in your supply chain?

Responsible sourcing improves your business.

Is insight into the supply chain important in your company? You are not alone.

Four key reasons responsible supply chain control takes high priority

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. ​​​​​​​

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 effectively implements ethical guidelines and codes of conduct.

3. Complex supply chains require new tools. Mapping and managing documentation in the supply chain becomes more time consuming as expectations grow.​​​​​​​ Supplier evaluation is necessary in supply chain management.

4. Better relationships give better business. Supply chain control supports dialogue and improvements.​​​​​​​ With Factlines you can turn compliance needs into business opportunities.
