Achilles works to ensure suppliers’ information is accurate via data validation and desktop and physical audits. The Achilles FPAL community serves the procurement needs of the wider European oil & gas market, whilst maintaining firm roots within North Sea operations. Achilles FPAL is an industry-run community of operators, contractors and suppliers working in collaboration to promote a fair and transparent supply chain.
Malcolm Wilson, Director for Achilles FPAL, said: “By joining the biggest supply chain risk management community supporting the North Sea and European oil and gas industry, Titan Environmental Surveys Ltd. has put itself in the best position to be considered for work with major oil and gas buyers. Achilles FPAL is a simple and successful model which has operated since 1997 by streamlining procurement and reducing cost for suppliers and buyers. It provides a vital shop window for suppliers that can offer innovative technology or services at a time when there is great focus on value and efficiency. Achilles FPAL also has a unique two-way Performance Feedback feature that allows suppliers to give and receive feedback so that high performing suppliers can demonstrate their track record to customers”.
Achilles is one of the world’s largest service providers of global supply chain risk management solutions with more than 1,000 people working in 22 countries.
We work on behalf of over 860 buying organisations, from 9 industry sectors, to collect, validate and maintain essential data about more than 133,000 suppliers. This allows buying organisations to gain visibility of their suppliers’ capabilities and compliance before making important sourcing decisions. With an understanding of their supply chains, buying organisations can proactively identify and mitigate potential risks to protect people, planet and profit.
We operate unique supply chain communities where steering groups, comprising leading buyers from each industry, work collaboratively to agree the common standards suppliers need to meet in order to be eligible to do business with them.
With one, standardised approach per industry, buying organisations can raise standards consistently in any geographic location in which they operate, and easily connect with credible and qualified suppliers worldwide. Suppliers gain a dedicated ‘shop window’ where they can promote their services to some of the biggest buying organisations in the world. They also gain a clear understanding of the steps they must take in order to qualify for work.
Our solutions enable businesses to make informed, strategic decisions to minimise cost and turn common industry challenges into sources of competitive advantage.
