Achilles — Our business is built on the idea that, in an ever-more-connected world, we're not just responsible for what we do – we're also accountable for what's done on our behalf. And where there's accountability, there's a need for control… When we started out in 1990 operating in the gas and oil industry, we saw that control was something buyers ... Moreneeded more of. So we designed our community model, our supporting services and the technology that powers them to address this need. We wanted to drive a new kind of procurement with less risk, less cost and less compliance issues. At the same time, wanted to bring suppliers into the fold – to help them meet buyers' needs while reducing their own qualification burdens.

Today, with all kinds of stakeholders holding businesses to ever-higher standards, it's even more important for businesses to have a complete picture of their supply chains – not just in terms of their business performance, but their ethical and environmental standards too. Against this backdrop, our drive to develop and refine our offering has only increased.

Now we're working from offices all over the globe, serving a network of over 800 buyers and 175,000 suppliers in all kinds of industries. As such, we're proud to be part of a truly worldwide community dedicated to raising standards and doing business in ways that benefit everyone.
