Frequently Asked Questions


Why should I use SCAIR®?
SCAIR® is one of the most reliable ways for large batch manufacturers to calculate and accumulate loss estimations across their entire organisation. Furthermore, large supply chains are simply too complex to model in spreadsheets. Spreadsheets cannot provide multi-scenario analysis and are prone to induced errors, user errors and change. Spreadsheets are also not an effective way to collaborate and can’t graphically display complex supply chains.

SCAIR® addresses all of these problems and is simply accessed using an Internet browser.
My Supply Chains are complex. Can SCAIR® model everything?
Yes. SCAIR® is designed to make even very large, complex supply chains visible to a wider audience through visualisation and graphical representation.
Do I need to be a risk manager to use SCAIR®?
No. SCAIR® is designed to reduce the complexity and to increase the visibility of the risks in your supply chains.
Will it help me to design my corporate insurance programme?
Yes. Designing and structuring your insurance program around your risk profile ensures that the rights risks are covered to the right limit.
Can I display the outputs from SCAIR® elsewhere?
Yes, SCAIR® can export to other formats such as Excel as well as providing native reporting functions.
Is training available?
Yes. One day’s training is included and we can be engaged to assist further. For example, we can also provide additional coaching in the latest supply chain risk quantification techniques.
How is SCAIR® populated?
As well as manual entry, via the supply chain flowchart, we can tailor interfaces with standard business tools that already hold your supply chain data.
Is SCAIR® configurable and does it support concurrent use?
Yes, SCAIR® is entirely configurable. Adaptive supply maps for each product allow critical supply points to be effectively presented and communicated and you can use the terminology preferred by your organisation. SCAIR® is also designed for multiple people to use at the same time. Lock-out functionality protects your data from simultaneous change and there is no limit to the number of licensed users.
