Benchmarking for Suppliers

The benchmarking tool allows supplier members to see how they compare to others against key criteria, based on responses to the questionnaire.

When you register for RISQS as a supplier you are asked questions to establish your capability level across a wide range of criteria. This data is then fed into the tool to provide your benchmarking score. 

You will be able to see your own results, allowing you to measure your performance against your peers. You can then focus your efforts on improving areas of lower maturity making you more attractive to buyers

Buyers are able to see the results for the companies they shortlist to provide a better comparison.

When new questions are added to the verification process,suppliers are given time to answer these prior to them being included in the benchmarking matrix. This means all suppliers get sufficient time to answer,ensuring the benchmarking treats all suppliers in the same way.
