HOUSTON – Jan. 28, 2021 – Veriforce, the premier global supply chain risk and compliance management solution, announced that a record number of companies, including several of the largest energy firms in North America —among the most highly regulated and dangerous places to work— have joined the Veriforce Network to help identify and mitigate risks within their supply chains. Additionally, the company has expanded into key industries, including telecommunications, facilities management, and manufacturing, helping organizations manage evolving risks to ensure safety and optimize business performance.
“Research indicates that supply chain risk management has become increasingly important as companies partner with new suppliers, look to extend their global reach, and face growing complexities, including the impacts of COVID-19,” said Colby Lane, CEO Veriforce. “It’s difficult for companies to ensure safety and manage business continuity and environmental sustainability risk in this environment, and failing to do so can have disastrous consequences. We are proud to have built the world’s most comprehensive supply chain risk and compliance management solution to help them.”
According to Deloitte, companies who are poised to mitigate supply chain complexities have strong relationships with key suppliers and systems in place to provide visibility across their extended supply network. As a global supply chain risk management powerhouse, Veriforce provides the visibility and support companies need, empowering them to prequalify third-party contractors’ safety readiness and monitor their ongoing compliance from a single, powerful platform.
