- Resilinc Corporation and Verisk Maplecroft entered a new alliance Monday, according to a press release.
- The two companies aim to combine supply chain mapping data with political, environmental and human rights risk data, in order to help companies act in advance of disruption.
- Resilinc specializes in digital supply chain visibility while Verisk Maplecroft provides insight on risk identification for company assets and suppliers.
Supply chain information partners are increasingly working together to build their toolkits.
Recently, SAP Ariba partnered with Samasource to incorporate fair labor data into their procurement platform. In other news, Jaggaer and Pool4Tool merged to bring together a direct spend and indirect spend platform. The news, while seemingly disconnected, highlight a shifting supply chain: to address the various, complex needs and reach end-to-end visibility, managers need more information in a single place.
Resilinc's and Verisk Maplecroft's partnership is an example of this trend in the still emerging supply chain risk management field. The most interesting part is that the two companies focus on distinct strategies for risk management: risk aversion, and resilience.
Verisk Maplecroft is well known for its risk reports identifying factors managers should consider, like economic shifts or the rise of populism. Resilinc, meanwhile, advocates for building the toolkit to be able to withstand risk factors. Partnered, the two companies will be able to offer clients a risk map, and data-driven insights to address them.
