GSRMSM relies on more than 100 sources of data, including both public and private sources, and we conduct both primary and secondary research. Every data point used in our models have at least two sources of data to help ensure the integrity of our model, and to provide you with reliable, fact-based insights. 6. HOW ARE YOUR RISK RATINGS CALCULATED? Supply Wisdom Risk Ratings are an objective, integral part of our service that allow you to quickly compare potential risk and opportunities across Suppliers or Locations. Our risk ratings are rooted in our proprietary algorithms that look at both quantitative and qualitative changes in the marketplace. In our models each category of risk (Macro-Economic, Financial, Scalability, etc.) is given a risk weighting based on the potential impact of the category on operational risk. We make that risk weighting completely transparent to you as a subscriber. This gives you insight into knowing what risks are changing, and confidence in taking appropriate actions to mitigate risk. 7. WHAT SYSTEMS DO I NEED IN ORDER TO ENABLE SUPPLY WISDOM? None! Supply Wisdom is a cloud-based service and, as such, no additional systems are needed and no system integration is required to use Supply Wisdom.
