The Supplier Impact Map Overview

This view shows your suppliers against the capability model, so you can see the footprint of suppliers on your organisation and perform supplier impact analysis

The view looks at suppliers and the processes applications or technologies they provide to the organisation.  It then maps that to the capabilities they impact.

Supplier Impact Map

The icon in the corner has a count of suppliers supporting the capability.  If you have set up ESG ratings then the icons appear in the capabilities to show how many suppliers match to your ratings.

Clicking the supplier count opens a slide out showing the summary information on the supplier and, if set up, their ESG rating.  Suppliers not assessed default to ‘Not Rated’
