Nestlé was looking for a consistent method to manage risk across the multi-national operation. The fact that Active Risk Manager is web-based means that countries will be able to share information, update and monitor risk information in an effective and efficient way.
Marc Schaedeli, Head of Risk Management at Nestlé explained, “Of all those products evaluated, Active Risk Manager best suited our requirements. Other products could provide part of what was needed but not everything and many of them were also too complex. Active Risk Manager gave us what we were looking for.”
Charles Longridge, Director of Business Development for EMEA at Sword GRC said, “We are very excited to be working with such a leading global manufacturer and will look to Nestlé as a key sector influencer in the supply-chain risk management and Sarbanes Oxley compliance. We look forward to providing a positive return to Nestlé with improved risk mitigation strategies and increasing profit margins.”
Marc Schaedeli concluded, “We believe Active Risk Manager will provide the right information to the right people at the right time which will help Nestlé to fulfil its company priority – to bring highest quality products to people, wherever they are, whatever their needs, throughout their lives.”
Nestlé, with headquarters in Vevey, Switzerland was founded in 1866 by Henri Nestlé and is today the world’s biggest food and beverage company with factories or operations in practically every country in the world.
