3 What is Achilles Supply-Line? Achilles Supply-Line is our supplier management community for public and private sectors operating in regulated and deregulated environments. Achilles Supply-Line enables buyers to choose suppliers best suited to their business needs, in a fair and transparent way via a web based solution thus saving time, money, resources and effort. With thousands of supplier records across supplies, services and works, Achilles Supply-Line provides a single source for the collection and sharing of supplier qualification information. The supplier is required to input and update their data at least once a year. Benefits of Achilles Supply-Line: Ensures a consistent approach to qualification across the company with a clear audit trail of the selection process, thus reducing risk Provides a single source of clean accurate supplier data Replaces manual expression of interest process saving time, duplication and effort for regulated buyers Potential to reduce time and costs for regulated buyers by up to 60% Implementing Achilles Supply-Line Deciding to implement Achilles Supply-Line as the supplier management solution is easy. Achilles will issue a company-wide license and arrange access to the platform to all the relevant people within the organisation. Achilles provides training and support on the Achilles Supply-Line service and operation, and compliance with EU, National and Industry procurement best practice. A critical success factor is the development of a partnership approach, access to procurement plans and alignment of key suppliers with Achilles Supply-Line. A customised Implementation Plan can provide: 1. Supplier data cleansing 2. Contract identification and category management 3. Risk profiling of suppliers 4. Prioritisation of suppliers and contracts 5. Supplier communication campaigns 6. Progress reporting 7. Go-live launch Additional external resource to support procurement process releasing internal resources for more strategic activities Enables collaboration with other procurement professionals via Steering Group membership Independent assessment and validation of key suppliers

4 Value Added Services Achilles offers a portfolio of supplier information and supplier management modules to complement our core supplier management solution for Irish industry sectors. Additional options include: e-qual e-qual (Electronic Qualification) is a Request For Information (RFI) tool that enables the buyers to screen and differentiate suppliers by asking additional questions related to a tender or a contract. The supplier can provide their answers directly online, giving the buyer an easy way of monitoring and managing the replies. This helps the buyer to further narrow the shortlist of suppliers to relevant, compliant and interested suppliers only. EU Services Achilles EU Services team offer a range of services to the market via THEMiS, an online service which gives you the ability to ask EU questions to one of the advisors. Training is delivered by one of our experienced team members which helps keep you up-todate with changes to the legislation as well as training from first principles to masterclass levels. Consultancy services on all aspects of procurement can be provided. Any of these service options can be added to your membership at any time, subject to agreement on fees. Verify Audit Achilles Supply-Line Verify is an independent audit service providing buyers with access to: Suppliers with proven Safety, Health, Environment & Quality (SHEQ) capabilities Credible suppliers in the market place Where supplier verification and assessment is deemed a requirement, Achilles Supply-Line Verify can be applied. Verify allows buying organisations to request suppliers to demonstrate supplier compliance with health, safety, environmental and quality requirements. Organisations use the Verify system to qualify their supply chain, through a standard assessment of their management systems and site performance. This leads to a significant reduction in the time and effort required to prequalify for high risk contracts. A Supply-Line Verify audit can be implemented as an enhanced level of validation. Collaborative Procurement Achilles can also support collaborative procurement solutions aimed at developing significant savings by offering a single point of contact for multiple buying agencies to source common supplies and services. By combining our consultancy expertise with our supplier community, we have achieved significant savings on contracts when compared with historic costs of the following orders: Telecoms 30% Energy 17% Stationery 40% Collaborative procurement is particularly successful at securing significant savings for smaller under-resourced procurement functions, by giving access to economies of scale and professional support. 04
