If you’ve found yourself here because a client has asked you to subscribe to our service we’re pleased to see you. If you want to get on the Assured Vendor list for any of our 40+ clients, just follow the link to the right to subscribe to our Altius Assure service.
The following information should help you to keep your client happy and get value for money at the same time.
A subscription to Altius may not be what you expect. Our service does include an assessment of your capabilities but it is much more than that.
Altius has a unique insight into each of our clients' specific requirements. We help you to build a profile that will clearly demonstrate to your clients that you meet their requirements. This is very different from the one-size-fits-nobody questionnaire that you may have been expecting.
If we ask you for information or evidence it’s because we know one of your target clients requires it. If they don’t we won’t ask.
Once you submit your profile to us we’ll undertake a gap analysis to judge whether, in our experience, your profile is sufficient to convince your clients that you are capable and competent. If we don’t think it’s sufficient we will explain why and provide guidance on how to overcome this. Once your profile is complete we’ll let you and your target clients know.
Another thing you may not expect is that our service isn’t an annual assessment, like many others. If your profile is about to deteriorate because some evidence is about to expire we’ll pre-warn you so you can update it. The benefit of this is that whenever a client, or potential client, looks at your profile it will be up-to-date. There’s nothing worse for you than a client looking at your profile and losing interest because it’s out-of-date. It also means there’s no massive annual gathering together of evidence for you to do.
As a subscriber to Altius your profile will be provided to all of our users (excluding the confidential bits which will only be provided to those that you indicate you would like to work for). Your chances of winning work from those other clients will be maximised if you make a really good job of your profile. We will encourage you to do this and your efforts will set you apart from those that simply do the minimum.
You will also benefit from tools provided through your subscription to help you get the most benefit from your accreditation. These include facilities to share your profile with any potential client, whether or not they’re already using Altius, freely distributable reports and vehicle stickers.
The benefits of being an Altius Assured Vendor also include the opportunity to get discounted business insurance through Altius's partnership with AXA. See below for details:
AXA Business Insurance offers a range of insurance products to meet the needs of small businesses and self-employed people, including public liability, employers’ liability and professional indemnity insurance.
And Altius Assured Vendors get a 15% discount*, so you’ll get the protection you'd expect from AXA – for less.
* Terms, conditions, eligibility and exclusions apply.
