Vendor Risk Management

By monitoring all the relevant market and operational conditions, our Vendor Risk Management Solution delivers automated, continuous monitoring of risks and 100% peace of mind.

How well do you know the vendor you onboarded?  If there were significant changes like a change in ownership or financial position, would you know before it impacts your business?  Keeping an ongoing vigilance over your vendors can help to avoid potential issues such as loss of money or supply chain delays and most importantly reduce your exposures.


Satori Financial Crime Management

Certainty in an increasingly uncertain world

In a globalised economy with increased levels of government and consumer scrutiny over supply chains and reputation, it is essential that organisations continuously monitor risks and provide assurance to their Board and Executive teams that exposure from suppliers and vendors is being monitored and managed effectively. 

Satori Financial Crime Management

Supporting your operations management and internal risk compliance teams

Due to manual processes, many organisations only perform vendor risk assessments at the initial engagement onboarding phase. However, vendor risk profiles can change rapidly, this leaves your organisation vulnerable to the negative impacts of restructures, takeovers, legal disputes or financial stress.

Coupled with an increased exposure to sanctioned organisations and individuals, politically exposed persons (PEP) and bank account changes, this has resulted in organisations needing to be far more responsive and aware of changes in their vendor landscape.

By monitoring all these market and operational conditions, in real-time and on an ongoing basis, our VRM solution delivers automated, continuous monitoring of these risks and 100% peace of mind.

Contextualising the risk for your organisation

Understanding changes in your vendor circumstances such as being in financial distress or the inclusion in a sanctioned entity list is critical for any organisation to know. However, your organisation’s response to these changes needs to be commensurate with your exposure to the vendor in question. With this in mind, SatoriVRM will combine this information with internal data points based on your activity with that vendor (such as open contracts, open POs, historic spending, etc) to ensure that if your exposure from that vendor is high, you can respond in line with the urgency that it requires. Having all the facts in hand ensures that you respond in the appropriate manner.

Gavin SteinbergCEO, Satori
