Satori VRM

Do you know your current vendor risk?

Vendor failure can seriously impact business operations and result in financial loss.

Organisations typically only perform vendor risk assessments at an initial engagement. Vendor risk profiles can change rapidly and when they do, need addressing as a matter of urgency. Restructures, takeovers, legal disputes or financial stress are all cause for concern and need monitoring on an ongoing basis.

Case 1

Manufacturer A uses a highly specialised part only available from Manufacturer B. If Manufacturer B becomes insolvent, this may comprise Manufacturer A’s ability to continue production and meet commitments to their customers. Early warning of potential vendor failure or temporary disruption to supply is vital.

Case 2

A vendor experiencing financial stress may resort to unethical practices. These could include short supply, improperly disputing claims or requests for advance payment with no intention of completing the order.

Identify your vendor risk

SatoriVRM matches vendor ABNs through the (Creditor) WatchTM platform to determine a creditworthiness score for all your vendors. The scores are based on data from:

  • Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC);
  • Australian Business Register (ABR and ABN Lookup);
  • Insolvency notices from the Insolvency Notices Register administered by ASIC;
  • Actions from courts around Australia;
  • Payment defaults from 50,000+ organisations; and
  • Mercantile enquiries lodged by agents (debt collectors).

The vendor risk is further refined utilising activity and transactional data, such as:

  • Purchase order activity;
  • Invoice dollar value and volume;
  • Future contract information;
  • Rebate claims; and
  • Vendor creation or modification.

BROWSER BASED

Alerts are accessed via a web browser following an email notification. Escalation occurs if alerts are not actioned. No alerts will slip through the gaps.

Mitigate your vendor risk

Vendor risk alerts require investigation and action. Each alert is managed to ensure it is understood, followed up and remediated. This provides visibility into root cause, trends in activity and potential improvements to processes. Investigations might result in blocking payments or vendors until further investigation is undertaken and the risk is mitigated. This can be assisted through detailed (Creditor)WatchTM reports on an individual vendor.
