Connecting You to Your Supply Chain
Giving you tools to engage directly with workers along your entire supply chain.
Direct Worker Reporting
Engage with the entire workforce and continuously improve working conditions across the supply chain
What We Do
We have simple cost effective diagnostic tools which use workers’ mobile phones to track and encourage improvement in labour practices along the supply chain. These tools offer real time results and can also be used to support particular suppliers, and offer you an early warning system when used across your supply base.
Monitor working conditions through automated mobile calls direct to your workers. Suppliers and retailers can access user-friendly analytics.
Gather feedback from workers to enhance business performance and worker retention.
Enjoy an always active open communication channel with your workforce.
