Selfridges partners with Altius

Department store group Selfridges has appointed Altius Vendor Assessment to manage supplier pre-assessment, compliance and accreditation to improve supply chain management.

Martin Beck, health and safety manager for Selfridges, said: “The live assessment process gives us a continuous picture of supplier competence and financial health, not just a snapshot in time, so we can maintain full confidence in our contractors.”

Previously, Selfridges assessed contractors as part of the pre-tender interviews. The new assessment system has simplified and strengthened this process, saving time and resources and easing the burden on contractors.
