Interos Annual Supply Chain Report Unveils $37M Benefit to Organizations Taking Swift Action on Supply Chain Disruption

prnewswire | August 11, 2023

Interos, creator of the world's first and only automated supplier resilience platform, today released "Invisible Threats: Resilience 2023", the third edition of its closely-watched annual survey of 750 supply chain leaders spanning financial services, aerospace and defense, energy, and other global industries. The report was conducted with market research firm Vanson Bourne. It identifies a new threshold for opportunity in the post-pandemic era, with leaders affirming that better prevention and a faster response to continued disruptions could save their organizations an average of $37M annually. The report notes the frequency of supply shocks have increased 33% since its 2022 survey, with the average organization suffering $82M in annual losses due to four "significant" disruptions. Notably, 90% of organizations are unaware of sub-tier supplier disruptions until 48 hours after their occurrence, leaving enterprises ill-prepared to mitigate damage and loss affecting their brand, reputation, and profitability. The data shows enterprises face numerous new and emerging supply challenges – including climate change, geopolitical turmoil, rising sanctions and controls, inflation, and financial instability. Over the last 12 months, most organizations have encountered multiple significant disruptions that required considerable mitigation efforts. Key Highlights The average organization assesses just 56% of its critical suppliers for vulnerabilities, creating weaknesses and blind spots across the rest of its supply base. 74% of procurement leaders agree that they cannot comply with emerging supply chain/third-party regulations without supporting data, analytics, and risk management software. The average annual cost of individual supply chain disruption categories were similar, ranging from $43M to $47M – illustrating the importance of continuous sub-tier mapping and monitoring across multiple risk variables; restrictions-related risks trigger the costliest disruptions. Achieving supplier resilience has emerged as an essential competitive differentiator – yet a majority of organizations still lack the knowledge, resources, processes, and tools necessary to effectively manage hidden supplier or third-party risks. "Only 5% of today's Chief Procurement Officers believe they have the ability to continuously pre-empt risk and build resilience in their companies," said Interos Founder and CEO, Jennifer Bisceglie. "In today's turbulent landscape, merely having superior products and solutions falls short. Embracing supply chain resilience is the key to safeguarding revenue, reputation, and ensuring regulatory compliance. Unmanaged risks can be turned into competitive advantage when enterprises adopt a 'resilience by design' strategy to take control of risk to satisfy customers and drive growth." The results of Interos' survey highlight the continued and urgent need for organizations to redefine resilience and seize momentum. One survey participant admitted, "We assumed everything would work flawlessly, and now we know it doesn't." Interos' AI-powered relationship discovery and risk assessment platform helps enterprises pre-empt risk and prevent disruption. Gartner recognized the pioneering resilience provider in its Sample Vendor 2023 Gartner® Hype Cycle™ for Procurement and Sourcing Solutions. Inc. magazine also named Interos one of its 2023 Fastest Growing Regional Companies. About Interos Interos is the AI-first operational resilience company – helping clients achieve Resilience by Design™. Our pioneering scoring and relationship discovery technologies enable customers to automate risk assessment, detection, and response.
