Most unexpected events – such as the Iceland ash grounding air traffic – and country risk situation in Greece, Spain, Portugal and Ireland has heightened the interest in supply management solutions.  The need for a more collaborative approach between finance and operations is rising to the top of the agenda given the state of the recovery.  To deal with this issue D&B organized a webinar specifically for that audience – one can view the webinar here.  

As part of D&B’s ongoing mission to provide innovative solutions to help you manage supplier risk and avoid supply chain disruption, it announced the migration of Supplier Locator into a recently released Supplier Risk Manager platform.  The Supplier Locator will be one of the modules within Supplier Risk Manager, which provides focused and predictive insights to certify, monitor, and analyze your existing or prospective suppliers – and mitigate risk.  The key enhancements in the Supplier Risk Manager – Locator Module are:  Criteria for searching for new suppliers will appear on a convenient, single scrolling page.  Criteria for a targeted search, where a company name or D-U-N-S® Number is already known, will appear on a separate page for improved navigation. Additional socioeconomic search criteria such as SBA, Hub Zone, and Disabled Veteran will be included.
