Intertek’s Import Safety Intelligence Program Provides Buyers Transparency into their Global Supply Chains

Intertek, a leading provider of quality and safety services to a wide range of industries around the world, announces the debut of Import Safety Intelligence (ISI), a global sourcing platform that brings together buyers, suppliers and factories to provide transparency into the global supply chain. ISI provides structured and verified information related to product quality, safety, sustainability, security and social compliance of factories. This new platform minimizes risks and knowledge gaps by enabling visibility into factories throughout the international supply chain, which is vital for success in today’s global business environment.

As global buyers look for innovative ways to minimize their expenses, factories and suppliers seek ways to differentiate themselves to gain new customers. Intertek developed ISI to promote collaboration among buyers, factories and suppliers participating in the global supply chain to create a trusted community where buyers and suppliers and factories can forge partnerships. Intertek’s ISI platform and tools improve not only factories’ bottom lines by reducing duplicative costs associated with demonstrating competency, capability and compliance to buyers, but ISI also increases the top line of suppliers by helping them capture new markets and customers, develop new services and ultimately increase market share.

ISI provides a solution to global sourcing by providing verified data about factories to buyers presented in the form of structured profiles, allowing buyers to benchmark selected factories using the parameters they value. These structured living profiles provide more complete and up-to-date information of all participating factories by incorporating factory input as well as third-party database information. ISI is a dynamic platform for factories to demonstrate their reliability as a partner by allowing them to update certain fundamental information in real-time.
