Prioritize supplier due diligence based on adverse media trends.

As your organization grows, the number of suppliers you manage often increases. It's crucial to gather the information you need quickly to assess and prioritize which suppliers require immediate attention. With Venmonitor™, you have access to a user-friendly risk heatmap dashboard. It allows you to easily view your supplier's adverse media risk ratings, helping you identify who needs your attention promptly. By utilizing these insights, you can effectively follow up with your supplier to request more information, and take necessary steps to mitigate any risks.

Continuously monitor suppliers for adverse media trends over time.

Millions of pieces of information are published daily in official and unofficial news sources, so it can take just a single one to cause financial or reputational damage (for example, a cyber breach, fraud, regulatory violations, or other reputational concerns). If one of your suppliers, especially a critical supplier, is appearing online in adverse media news, you want to be informed. By monitoring your existing supplier portfolio with Venmonitor™ Daily Refresh, you can ensure you're taking proactive measures to monitor their adverse media trends.
