Rosslyn Analytics Debuts 'One-Click' Tool for Supplier Risk Analysis

Rosslyn Analytics, a provider of business-intelligence software, has made available a new tool for conducting analyses of supplier risks. RA.Pid Supplier Risk Profile allows finance, procurement and supply-chain organizations to collaboratively evaluate, monitor and mitigate supplier-centric risks in real time in five business days, all from a single screen, the vendor claimed.

The cloud-based data services and analytics platform offers a unified view into such problems as supplier over-dependency, financial instability, natural disasters, non-compliance with contracts and geopolitical concerns, before they become disruptions. Users can monitor the financial vulnerability of suppliers with the aid of a credit-ratings tool. They can identify the highest water usage and carbon-emission levels across their supply chains. They can determine supplier dependency, assess the cost impact of natural disasters and immediately respond to market conditions with the help of streamed news. Other capabilities include instant identification of alternative suppliers with real-time geo-location data, tracking of social unrest such as labor strikes, and assurance that suppliers' company directors are not on international watch lists or convicted felons. Rosslyn's technology includes RA.DAR, an artificial-intelligence engine which links structured corporate data with unstructured external information.
