Mitigate your supply chain risk with effective vendor due diligence

Managing supply chain risk starts with knowing who your vendors are. If you aren’t continually conducting thorough due diligence across your vendor network, you’re leaving your organization at risk.

Assessing the risk of working with vendors or third-party suppliers

A company is only as strong as its weakest vendor. Vendors, though potentially risky, are also vital to your success. That is why vendor management teams all over the globe are investing in proactive technology that conducts effective due diligence at onboarding and throughout the life cycle of the relationship.
