Supplier Diversity Data Services
Supplier diversity is rapidly evolving in Canada. More and more organizations are not only finding that supplier diversity is a competitive advantage, but also choosing to utilize their procurement to make a difference in their communities. Inclusion of diverse suppliers in supply chains is transforming organizations while also ensuring economic growth in our country.
To support our member organizations on their journey towards a sustainable supplier diversity program, WBE Canada has partnered with B2Gnow to provide the Supplier Diversity Data Services, best-in-class supplier diversity technology to its members. This partnership will allow WBE Canada to fully support its members by collecting, analyzing and reporting accurate supplier diversity data and leveraging existing technology to streamline and automate supplier diversity tasks for you, without overextending your internal resources.
What it means for our Member organizations?
- A complimentary data scrub/supplier diversity assessment
- An analysis of your current vendor list to identify diverse suppliers
- A detailed tabulation of the results to help you analyze your program
Additional technology services are available at highly discounted rates for WBE Canada Members:
Level 1: Supplier Diversity Assessment (Data Scrub)
After the initial complimentary assessment, perform regular monthly/quarterly assessments to maintain continual knowledge of your diverse supply chain.
Assessments will utilize all councils you are a member of (Canada and US) plus all publicly available directories in the system.
Level 2: Diversity Spend Reporting
Combine supplier and spend data to provide Tier 1 Spend Analysis, with dashboards and reports to provide segmented data by account code, department, region, and other classifications.
Collect Tier 2 expenditure data with an automated supplier reporting process. Once you identify the suppliers required to report data, the system handles all communications, data collection, and diverse status validation for you. Data is provided in real-time as it is collected from suppliers.
Level 3: Diversity Registration
Activate a customized online, branded supplier diversity portal to simplify and automate the registration of diverse suppliers with your organization. Collect enhanced information in order to qualify them to do business – diversity credentials, capacity information, insurance certificates, conflict of interest disclosures, past & current references.
Security of your data is our top priority. The B2Gnow system is SOC 2 Type II certified and uses the highest level of security protocols available. Hosted on the Amazon AWS platform, multiple layers of security are in place to protect all aspects of the system. All data is encrypted during transfer and secure FTP is used for exchanging any data files. Further, your data is your data, period. You own it, we will treat it always as confidential, and it is made available to you in the system only for your access. Your data will never be shared with any third-party.
