The Intertek Inlight web tool maximizes supply chain visibility for both buyers and suppliers through supply chain management, evaluation and improvement.
Leveraging Intertek’s vast experience in supply chain inspections and audits – each year Intertek conducts 2 million facility visits, comprising 200,000 suppliers on behalf of 5,000 global buyers – the Inlight system involves four core steps:
- Collection and cleansing of supplier information
- Business profile completion
- Risk-based analysis and reporting
- Verification services
As a result, verified supplier profiles are created, including financial information, company profile, product quality and safety, security, sustainability and social responsibility, allowing companies to evaluate and improve supplier performance in these areas. This provides the enhanced supply chain transparency and traceability necessary to make informed global business decisions.
