BSI Management Systems has announced the successful conclusion of contract negotiations with Levi Strauss & Co for the provision of Entropy Software; a web-based supply chain audit solution which simplifies the management of corporate-wide supply chain compliance.

Levi Strauss & Co (LS&CO) is a globally recognised brand whose products are sold through more than 55,000 retail outlets world wide. LS&CO were the first company to put in place a supplier code of conduct (Terms of Engagement - TOE) covering Ethical and Environmental standards.

The BSI Entropy Software will provide LS&CO with a web-based Audit & Compliance solution, which will replace their original TOE database, and will also help them address their increasing requirement for product carbon foot printing analysis.

The solution will provide senior managers and directors with the ability to identify, assess and manage supply chain compliance across the business, with real-time analysis and performance reporting via an instant executive dashboard view of the corporate-wide supply chain compliance data.

The Entropy Software solution also helps companies to address risk, compliance and performance management in areas of corporate governance, corporate social responsibility, environmental, health & safety, quality, and supply chain compliance management.

“We are delighted to be working closely with such a household-name company as Levi Strauss“, says Rob Wallis, Managing Director of BSI Management Systems in the UK.

“In recent years, competitive pressures, globalisation and increasingly discerning customers have led many companies, like Levi Strauss, to rely on an ever-extending global supply chain. As a result, many big brand companies have recognised the need to take responsibility for the social, ethical and environmental performance of their supply chain and are implementing tools such as Entropy Software to implement and manage controls that assist their supply chains to adhere to their compliance objectives, and ensure that risks associated with the supply chain are cost-effectively managed”.

Entropy Software offers a proven solution for organisations to manage and mitigate supply chain compliance risks; take accountability and allocate internal and external action planning (CAPA); manage the whole audit process; improve and share sustainable supply chain practices; and respond more proactively to external pressures.

BSI Management Systems is one of the world's largest certification bodies, with over 64,000 certified locations and clients in more than 120 countries.
