Cornerstone Automation has completed Avetta’s detailed vetting process, meant to ensure that service providers are qualified and licensed to perform safely and swiftly, and is now an Avetta-compliant vendor.
Cornerstone Automation is proud to announce that we are officially an Avetta-compliant vendor! Avetta is a Software as a Service (SaaS) company that offers supply chain management and risk mitigation solutions to its clients and suppliers. With a detailed vetting process, Avetta ensures all parties involved are qualified and licensed to perform safely and swiftly. On top of that, the SaaS company efficiently connects clients to suppliers who have already been certified, allowing projects to move forward in a timely manner with the assurance that the selected company is reliable. An Avetta certification guarantees that a service provider will adhere to all relevant legislation regarding health, safety, and environmental concerns, and gives enterprises peace of mind by assessing and mitigating risk. Even after completing a stringent application process, a vendor must maintain up-to-date documentation and information to preserve their certification.
“We are always looking for opportunities to be at the top of our industry in regard to safety and risk management. As an Avetta Certified vendor, Cornerstone Automation reduces liability risk to our clients and improves safety performance,” says Alan Ferrin, president of Cornerstone Automation. “We took this extra step because it is important to us to be the best that we can be for our clients. Dedication to risk management and safety is something our clients can always expect when they work with our team. We’re always striving to uphold that standard, and this is just another of the many ways that we’re doing that.”
Cornerstone makes it common practice to go above and beyond to offer the best and most reliable services to its clients. While emphasizing the importance of risk management and safety practices, the company guarantees that all methodologies undergo several screening processes in order to deliver the best result. In addition to being Avetta compliant, Cornerstone has met the criteria to earn approved vendor status from both ISN and FirstVerify.
In prioritizing the incorporation of risk-free and informed practices into everyday activities, Cornerstone has also been recognized by ISN as having met its standard of verification. ISN specializes in the management of authenticated contractor and supplier information. With a globally renowned network platform, ISNetworld connects qualified contractors to respective companies by providing contacts that have already been verified, saving clients time on research and vetting of new contractors. With a focus on risk reduction and safety, becoming an approved vendor credits Cornerstone with having met several high-level benchmarks regarding data insights, and decision-making processes, as well as current and past practices. ISN also guarantees that members are continuously assessed and monitored to guarantee that risk reduction is a sustained procedure.
First, Verify, a platform dedicated to connecting pre-qualifying contractors and suppliers has also recognized Cornerstone Automation for its commitment to high safety standards. Similar to ISN, First, Verify specializes in vendor information management and conducts meticulous screening processes in order to create a database of qualifying Contractors and Suppliers, one of which Cornerstone is a part.
The platform ensures that associated suppliers and contractors fulfill and uphold high corporate compliance standards using a digital information management tool. With the objective of optimizing daily business operations, their customized web application offers a one-stop shop for users to stay informed regarding the data and qualifications of their contractors and suppliers. While in their third generation of management service, First, Verify continuously provides reliable third-party verification to a wide range of vendors, expediting communication processes and increasing efficiency in the process.
With a strong emphasis on risk management, it’s only fitting that Cornerstone has been certified. Through a process of prequalification, education on safety-related issues, and verification, participating contractors and suppliers must meet several rigid requirements in order to be certified. First, Verify’s qualifying checklist considers records of performance with established safety standards, and once the safest contractors have been identified, an educative program is offered on hazard-related procedures.
Cornerstone takes safety and risk mitigation very seriously and continuously strives to be at the top of the class when it comes to protecting clients. We look forward to the opportunities these new certifications will bring and are committed to going above and beyond for our clients.
