CANQUALIFY RECOGNIZES SUPPLY CHAIN PAIN POINTS

Founded in 2015, CanQualify, LLC operates within the supply chain and logistics industry, focusing on connecting the world's largest companies with the safest and most qualified suppliers.

Aaron Harker, founder of CanQualify, pinpointed the industries pain points, an absence of customer service, communication, standardized technology, and supplier tracking deficit.

To address these issues, he sought out to develop a web-based portal for supplier compliance, where companies can track the performance of suppliers working for them.

CHETU DEFIES OUTSOURCING STEREOTYPES

Despite previously outsourcing development, the project had experienced little progress and had reached a standstill. Chetu's cost-effective model was inexpensive compared to what Harker had already invested, and unlike his previous developer, Harker experienced a closer connection with the Chetu team and felt more involved in the development process.

His requirements for this platform were straightforward: the software needed to feature a user-friendly interface that was clean and easy for customers to navigate through, where all parties (companies and suppliers) could have their own accounts. From the interface, companies would have the capability to setup a pre-qualification form for their suppliers. Every year, these forms must be completed by the suppliers working for the companies. Should a supplier not provide the required details, the system would notify the companies.

If a supplier were qualified for "Company A," then they would likely also be qualified for "Company B." This was the logic behind CanQualify's software. By designing the platform as a quote consortium, information would be shared on a network. Suppliers would also be ranked using specific colours to facilitate the process of identifying the most qualified candidates.

WEB-BASED CLOUD PLATFORM WITH NAICS COMPLIANCE

Based on a supplier's NAICS (North American Industry Classification System) code, Harker wanted to be able to set benchmarks for suppliers based on industry risk and average industry safety statistics.

To solve this problem, Chetu implemented the associated industry (NAICS) code with the associated industry risk into the CanQualify database allowing the companies to assign specific benchmarks to a specific industry.

This allows a supplier to qualify based on industry risk reducing the burden on the supplier and still meet the company's internal standards. For example, a low-risk janitor would not be required to submit the same verification documents that a high-risk electrician would be required.

Technologies Used:

Chetu utilized the following technologies to engineer a web-based, cloud platform with a robust database for measuring supplier compliance that also features different functions and user levels for clients and suppliers…

Supplier Compliance technology used

Chetu understood what we needed, and that really helped us cut down on costs and development. For anyone who is on the fence about outsourcing software I usually say: 'Look, just do it. You need an IT company, call Chetu, they're great.'

Supplier Compliance technology used

The Result:

In the end, clients were able to create custom login credentials for different departments and user types (admin, basic or view only) and see the compliance report at different levels.

On the website, administrations can see the list of all the suppliers working on the site, and all users have the ability to search for suppliers from a list of those meeting their criteria, view all contractors who are not fulfilling their criteria in red, and send reminders to the suppliers to complete certain tasks.

Chetu grouped all the sites (each work location) under the following hierarchy…

CORPORTATE ADMINISTRATORS

  • Corporate Admin have the ability to see the list of all suppliers working in the organization.

REGIONAL AND BUSINESS UNIT ADMINISTRATORS

  • The regional or business unit administrator can only see the list of all the contractors working in a specific region or business unit.

CONTRACTORS

  • Contractors create a login for themselves.
  • Contractors view the list of all the clients he/she can work for.
