Risk Management for the Facilities Management Industry


Since facilities management (FM) touches nearly every large industry, a unique, agile supply chain infrastructure is required. FM companies are often focused on financial matters when it comes to suppliers, including insurance and financial solvency. Gate access is also a hot-button issue, so visibility into the supply chain is crucial. FM companies rely on Avetta to track supplier certificates of insurance, financial health screenings, and alignment with client-specific standards.

Importance of Location in Supply Chain Management

The location in a supply chain network needs to be considered because the relationship between the physical flow of materials and information forms a network with both qualitative and quantitative aspects. Finding the optimal location for industry facilities and creating the most efficient network possible will allow you to meet the demands of your customers and lower your costs. Do this by creating logical location clusters and then analyzing, reviewing, and refining the routes.
