IDENTIFYING RISKS

Risk Radar

Risk Radar monitors risks along the entire supply chain – from subsuppliers via logistics hubs to tier one suppliers, production sites, all the way to end customers. All types of risks are taken into account: supplier risks (e.g. compliance, financial stability, quality), location risks (e.g. strikes, natural disasters), country risks (e.g. political risks, sanctions) or category specific risk (e.g. import regulations). In the case of a risk event, the early warning system sends alerts via email or as a push notification to your mobile device. In addition, risk profiles reveal latent risk situations (without occurrence) in order to enable implementation of customized risk prevention activities.


Supply Chain Visibility 

  • Visualization of supply chains on the world map in order to identify risks and subsupplier dependencies right up to the end customer
  • Display of logistics hubs
  • Animation of material flow
  • Details and color visualization of critical locations, suppliers, customers, supply chains and risk areas
  • Single-click data export in Excel, .pdf or image formats

Comprehensive Risk Scorecard

  • Risk scorecard with over 80 risk indicators for comprehensive monitoring (supplier, location, country and product category risks)
  • Coverage of all risk areas (viability, delivery, market, compliance & image, quality & performance)
  • Individual weighting of risk indicators

Risk Intelligence

  • Fully automated and pre-integrated data sources
  • riskmethods’ Risk Intelligence Service to monitor media and other websites across the internet, creating structured alerts from unstructured news
  • 100% automation
  • No manual data maintenance; immediate use and benefit from day one

Early Warning System & Noise Cancellation

  • Continuous risk monitoring in near real-time
  • Automatic notification in case of a risk event (email, mobile device)
  • Description of the risk event, as well as information about affected risk objects (suppliers, locations, customers)

Risk Trends and Risk Analyses

  • Graphical analyses of top risks, histories/trends and risk portfolios
  • Individual comparisons of suppliers, locations, countries and supply chains
  • Support for selecting optimal supply chains, suppliers and logistics hubs, and support for identifying preventive measures

Supply Chain Risk Management Step 1: Identifying Risks

Monitoring of latent risks and an early warning system for events enable prompt implementation of appropriate preventive measures in a crisis situation. These predefined actions (via the Action Planner), together with quicker crisis response time and assessment of the criticality (via the Impact Analyzer) can save costs and time.
