One key client has this to say: “We have utilized the services of GQC for the past year, and the company has been a tremendous resource for our Critical Incident program. GQC’s team has helped us to escalate our overall “prevention footprint” in the US and around the globe as we strive to implement policies and procedures that allow us to effectively manage our business and be prepared for all contingencies. They took the time to get to know our business, and did not just employ a cookie-cutter approach. Specifically, they immediately came with ideas on how to refine our program and make it more effective at the plant level, so we now have a more nimble and effective process and set of procedures to both prevent and handle critical incidents. This experienced input and clear direction has been invaluable to us worldwide”.

Supplier / Vendor Risks

The majority today’s failures and risk based threats are external to your organization.  Have you identified the level of risk your suppliers and

Co-manufacturers bring?  Many companies have not and unfortunately paid a hefty price in brand equity.  We can help you identify and mitigate this unknown risk to your company.

We provide a couple of risk tools and techniques aimed to identify what risks you’re accepting from your suppliers and how you can identify and significantly reduce that risk footprint

Risk Evaluations:

Who are your best suppliers and why? Is it because they have the best on time delivery and or price? Can you prioritize your vendors from best to worst based on solid risk and performance data?   You may not be in a position to know what level of risk they are exposing you too. We can help correct that situation. Our evaluations will clearly outline where your vendor risks occur. Whether it is their systems, tools, processes, their sourcing, culture and or skill sets. You will clearly see the great job or the unacceptable risk they bring to your organization.
