One of the many features of the Altius service that makes it unique is our “always-up-to-date” approach to assessments. We don’t expect vendors to start from scratch every year, filling out questionnaires and submitting evidence; and we don’t expect our clients to be satisfied with a snapshot assessment from 9 months ago.
As a vendor, once all your assessment information and evidence is in our system, all you need to do to maintain your status is to keep your data up to date and to meet any new requirements that arise. At the same time, if you’re a client, we give you the peace of mind of knowing that all of your Assured Vendors meet all of your requirements every day of the year.
Not only that but the annual vendor subscription fee of £399 is just that: a fee to subscribe to our service. As a vendor, if you want to send us an update every week of the year, we’ll re-assess you every week of the year! If a piece of evidence needs updating, we’ll send reminders and follow up with phone calls to offer help. If new legal or client requirements arise, we’ll notify you and offer all the assistance we can to help you meet the new requirements in time.
A significant added benefit for Altius Assured Vendors is that they can also, at any time, share their Altius information with any client or potential client they care to nominate. Altius will provide nominated clients with a logon specifically to view the information – which will always be current, valid and correctly assessed by Altius. The client pays nothing and for the vendor it’s all part of their annual fee!
