Acorn is excited to announce that we have proved our excellence in business performance and passed a rigorous independent assessment and accreditation process to achieve Altius Assured Vendor status.

After qualifying as an Altius Vendor, we can now forge links with other blue chip businesses that use Altius as their vendor selection criteria.

“Acorn has demonstrated to our expert assessors that it’s a top supplier. This provides assurance that it has all the necessary health and safety systems, financial strength, insurance coverage, and other requirements in place to be a competent supplier to large corporate customers. We are delighted to welcome them as one of our assured vendors.” 

Gary Plant, Managing Director, Altius

Altius Vendor Assessment is a leading supply chain compliance management company specialising in the development and delivery of services and software to organisations around the world.

“Achieving this recognised standard proves our high level of competence and compliance. It will strengthen our submissions for major contracts and boost our reputation as a quality service supplier. The major corporate businesses who are partnered with Altius can have confidence in our abilities, and it gives us a further opportunity to realise our growth plans.”

Jon Coiley, Managing Director, Acorn

Clients either manage the compliance themselves using the software or engage Altius to assess, improve, monitor and assure their supply base – to reduce their risk and liability and increase performance.  The robust online system takes a thorough evidence-based approach to checking the competences and financial health of suppliers.

By working with suppliers to develop and assess their competences, Altius enhances their status and performance – opening up opportunities to win major contracts with some of the UK’s leading businesses. Suppliers can also raise their performance further by developing and proving their customer service, environmental and corporate social responsibility credentials to achieve Altius Elite Vendor status.
