ISG is committed to continual improvement with regards to systems and ensuring that vendors will paid in line with target dates. In support of this ISG has updated the majority of its UK ERP systems and is in the process of implementing a new source to pay system. While in the short term this implementation may have a negative impact on payment performance by the first half of 2024 all of the vendors accounts should be established on the new system and the next stage, that is to include all sub-contractors, will commence. This new system, assuming that the vendors ensure they only supply ISG on receipt of a valid purchase order and make use of the ability to upload their invoices directly to the portal, should significantly improve ISG’s ability to increase automation and efficiency to the benefit of our supply chain.
Dispute resolution process
The company actively seeks to resolve disputes in a timely manner. This process will involve the Accounts Payable team and where necessary the Supply Chain team, Commercial teams and Senior Management. A member of the team will contact the supplier to discuss the dispute. Supplier relationships, managed more & more in a structured way, ensure we very rarely have the need for formal dispute resolution processes. If it is not possible to reach an agreement suitable to both parties then other methods of dispute resolution may include but are not limited to adjudication, litigation etc. as determined by the companies’ legal department. This is very much seen as a last resort.
