WHAT WE DO

BROWZ Australia ensures that supply chains are safe, qualified and socially responsible by delivering a comprehensive solution to prequalify, assess, and monitor supply chain compliance based on the unique needs of your business.

By now, most organizations are familiar with the legal liability arising from activities of contractors and suppliers at a worksite. While risk may exist anywhere in your supply chain, an often overlooked area is the hire of those required to perform maintenance, repair and operations (MRO).

The BROWZ product suite addresses your needs related to identifying and mitigating risk within your supply chain, managing employee-level data, conducting safety audits, and sourcing new suppliers.

When properly administered, supply chain qualification and management solutions can: improve safety, reduce risk, reduce costs, provide additional value to contractors, strengthen existing relationships, and simplify the compliance process.

If you employ third party organizations it may be time to reevaluate your approach to qualification. Let BROWZ help with your contractor and supply chain management needs in the following areas:

  • Contractor Prequalification – The process of vetting, screening or qualifying contractors, suppliers or vendors prior to awarding work; typically through the means of online assessments, audits and validation.
  • Contractor Management –The management of third-party or outsourced worked through a process which tracks and continually monitor health and safety information, insurances, training, and all relevant data to demonstrate a contractor’s ability to work safely and reliably for the owner client.
  • Supply Chain Management (SCM) – The oversight and management of suppliers, contractors, and vendors to track and monitor compliance. Common evaluation criteria includes historical safety performance, licensing, financial stability, insurance limits and endorsements, business continuity, corporate social responsibility, sustainability or other factors specific to job function.
  • Supply Chain Risk Management (SCRM) – The process of identifying risk introduced to your business through suppliers, contractors, and vendors, segmenting your supply chain partners based on the amount of risk they present to your business, and implementing processes for continuous risk assessment to reduce vulnerability and ensure business continuity also known as SCRM.

Best Practices

For more than a dozen years, BROWZ has worked with the world’s largest organizations across more than 17 industries to implement supply chain prequalification and compliance programs. We understand your industry standards, and we have the expertise to help you establish the appropriate compliance practices for your business.

Service

We understand that software alone does not ensure the success of your compliance and prequalification programme. That is why we place equal emphasis on delivering personalized service. In other words, with BROWZ, you’re not just buying software—you’re getting a partner. We validate and score submitted data whilst supporting you and your suppliers every step of the way. We also assign a single point of contact to support you and every member of your supply chain, so you will always know who to talk to.

Technology

BROWZ functions as a web-based data exchange for all of your supply chain compliance information. Intuitive icons and scorecards provide a view into which suppliers “meet” your standards and which “do not”, allowing you to make informed decisions and minimise supply chain risk.

Benefits of BROWZ

Reduced Risk

BROWZ offers an efficient means to exchange and evaluate supplier data. Your entire business will be able to access a single repository of compliance information for all suppliers and contractors to help you assess your risk exposure, monitor compliance, and make informed supply chain decisions. What’s more, we will independently assess the data submitted, and proactively work with your suppliers to update their information, as needed.

Better Safety Outcomes

Our research shows that the safety performance of suppliers will improve over time when compliance is measured and your supply chain is held accountable. BROWZ will work with you to develop the assessments and screening criteria that fit your business and are appropriate for each supplier, based on the level of potential risk they may present to your business.

Supply Chain Control

The more insight you have into your supply chain, the more consistently you can award business to the most qualified suppliers. BROWZ helps you create consistent global processes to source, qualify, and monitor suppliers using a single, verified source of data that’s available 24/7 from anywhere in the world. Real-time tools monitor supplier compliance at both the organizational and employee levels and offer integration with gate entry management and security systems. ERP integration ensures your management systems are in sync.

Efficiency and Cost Reduction

Although supply chain compliance is critical to any business, it’s a function that is seldom allocated enough resources to enable efficient and cost-effective “in-house” management. BROWZ allows you to efficiently create the right supply chain compliance program for your business. You’ll save money and free up your time and resources to focus on more strategic initiatives—without placing an undue burden on your suppliers. Our expert services team will support you and your suppliers every step of the way with best practices insight, solution support, information verification, audits, and proactive supplier outreach.

The Right Fit

A wide range of dynamic factors—your industry, applicable government and regulatory authorities, differing tiers of supplier risk, global operations, and multilingual requirements—all combine to create a unique compliance mandate for your business. BROWZ features enterprise technology that delivers a solution configured to the exact needs of your business. You don’t have to settle for a one-size-fits-all approach to compliance. BROWZ will partner with you to create a compliance program that’s as unique as your business requirements—and the supply chain you do business with.

Best Practices and Implementation Expertise

When you entrust your supply chain compliance to BROWZ, you get a partner who understands that your trust and confidence is earned each and every time we interact with you or your supply chain. For this reason, we focus relentlessly on current compliance issues and building the best team of compliance experts in the business. We continually improve our processes to ensure that your compliance program is right for your business and built on recognized best practices.

Administrative Support

BROWZ will always work as an extension of your team to communicate with and support your suppliers and the growth of their business. We will directly contact each of your suppliers on your behalf and invite them to participate in your compliance program. BROWZ assigns a single point of contact to every supplier to educate them about your requirements, help them become safer organizations, and provide the fastest path to compliance. Throughout the year, we proactively reach out to your suppliers to ensure that all data are kept current and compliant, ahead of any expirations.
