Vendor Risk Analysis Service
Benefit from an End-to-End, Independent Assessment
Certified Fraud Examiners perform a comprehensive vendor risk analysis service – giving you the upper hand against costly vendor fraud, employee fraud, procurement fraud and other risks. While other firms conduct limited, random-sample vendor risk reviews, our auditors conduct a complete analysis for end-to-end supplier risk management. Sign Up for a Vendor Risk Analysis Health Check.
All your vendor-related information is analyzed using FirstStrike® Fraud Detect – our powerful, proprietary software tool that can quickly process large data stores from multiple procurement, payment and human resources systems. FirstStrike looks for proven red flags that can indicate potential P2P fraud and risk – from consecutive invoice numbers to a match between employee and supplier data (a strong indicator of employee-initiated fraud scams).
APEX Analytix uses both public and proprietary resources to validate the results FirstStrike produces. We interpret, score and report on what we find, including those vendors representing your greatest risk. You will have all the information you need to investigate and take action on financial risks, OFAC violations, potential vendor fraud, employee fraud, policy violations, conflicts of interest, lapsed business licenses, liability concerns and more. We even provide comprehensive recommendations for underlying process improvements to help you shore up your internal controls. You will be poised to reduce vendor risks, improve compliance with policies and procedures, reduce your financial exposure, avoid OFAC fines and protect the integrity of your brand.
