The Biovac Institute

“We put together a Supplier Development Strategy for 12 months using the Scenario Planner in BEEToolkit. Using Mpowered’s tool we were able to upload live records monthly or quarterly and track our progress against actual targets as per the Scenario Planner. (The tool helped us) engage with all pillar champions to ensure we achieved each target. From Biovac’s perspective we moved from a L4 to a L1.”
