Virtual Inspections: Minimize the Impact of COVID-19 on Your Supply Chain

covid-19 risk management virtual inspections Mar 18, 2020

The Coronavirus has now become the biggest disruptor of all time in global business. To reduce the risk of spreading infectious disease, governments are imposing travel bans and self-quarantine measures, and companies are cancelling business trips and are advising their employees not to travel. Everyone is in a state of panic, as the World Health Organization qualified the virus as a Pandemic.

Safety has therefore become the new currency for both governments and companies. But the reality is that business must go on. In this time of crisis, managers need to rethink how things are done, and find more creative ways to continue their activities.

How to protect your team?

The risk of infection increases when many people are in the same place. Offices and public transport are high risk areas, so most employees have been asked, or even forced to work from home whenever possible. But what about quality inspectors and auditors? When they are not allowed to travel, how do brands keep the visibility of what is happening in the factories – often on the other side of the world?

How to protect your brand and your customers?

The need for transparency, and the insurance that products – and therefore the brand reputation – will not be compromised, is greater than ever. How do companies continue to ensure the best quality for their products, produced in the right manufacturing conditions? How do they know their products will still arrive on time?
