As companies pursue organizational excellence in their supply chains, effectively managing risk and uncertainty rise in importance. Investments in enhanced processes and effective technologies can serve as significant competitive advantages, enabling a company to proactively address volatility. In this webinar, we will discuss two major themes:

  1. Best-in-class analytics to create responsive and flexible companies, including an overview of how companies leverage advanced analytics to increase visibility, responsiveness and resilience in their supply chains.
  2. Overview of upcoming guidance for the creation of a System and Organization Controls (SOC) for Supply Chain assurance examination and report proposed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). This new criteria is expected to meet management’s need to gain insight into potential vendor supply chain risks in the market, with significant interest in the SOC for Supply Chain report by suppliers of major automotive, pharmaceutical and technology companies. Baker Tilly’s SOC specialist will give background on expectations for the SOC for Supply Chain report including, the expected use, benefits and intended users of the report – whether you are a customer or a supplier.
