Rail operator First Greater Western is to implement Achilles’ Total Supplier Management system.
The aim is to put in place a supplier information management solution that would give it a holistic view of its entire supply base with the visibility of constantly updated and validated data on their suppliers.
Achilles has provided supplier pre-qualification services, through Link-up, to First Great Western for a number of years.
“Through TSMS, First Great Western will have a clear and transparent process for supplier engagement, and a means to align procurement processes and risk management across the organisation,” said procurement chief Kevin Bartlett.
“We value our relationships with suppliers and with Achilles’ assistance we will maintain a single source of high quality information that will allow us to further improve supplier integration and to continuously drive performance improvements.”
