Mitigate third party risks with automated screening process and compliance-checked master data

Establish a central view on risk exposure and automate validation and updates for regulatory checks. You can easily implement EU, US, and other country-specific directives for anti-money laundering, counter financing of terrorism or prevention of corruption (PEPs). Our cloud-based solutions quickly identify data records that pose risk to your regulatory compliance.

Corporate compliance secured by Master Data Management

Business partner due diligence: first line of defense to mitigate risks  

Introduced in the last few decades, impactful regulations like Anti Money Laundering Directives (AMLD), Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) or The Financial Action Task Force (FATF), to name a few, challenge companies to set up a harmonized view and implement regulatory requirements in MDM. With CDQ services, master data de-duplication, cleansing, standardization, enrichment, matching, and consolidation can be fully aligned with your company’s compliance goals: 

  • Legal and business linkages of your business partners
  • Automatically identified Natural Person data, even in huge data sets  
  • Sanction and watchlist alerts for non-compliant business relationships (incl. PEP) 
  • Early warnings for new political or geographic risks in your supply chain 
Sanctions and Watchlist Lookup

Thorough due diligence helps organizations avoid engaging with entities that pose financial, reputational, or legal risks. Master data management plays a vital role in this process by providing a centralized platform to manage and monitor partner data, ensuring compliance with regulatory requirements.

Secure your compliance with clean data 


Vendor and supplier data screening and monitoring 

Lean and compliant KYC process

We offer continuous monitoring of business partner data against sanctions and watchlists for you to react promptly and perform required compliance measures in case a positive hit is found. A corresponding monitoring report provides a summary on potential matches and creates a seamless audit trail to prove compliance. Validation scope can be extended to PEPs too.

Ongoing monitoring of counterparties during active business lets you asses risk accurately and with no impact on the daily business. Enabled by clean, accurate and complete data, a 360-degree view of customers supports AML/CFT as well as sanctions, embargos or fraud analysis.
Thanks to connectivity to local registers, you can also automate tax ID verification and ensure correct legal address, names and business identifiers (i.e. GST numbers, tax identifiers, national identifiers and other third party and proprietary identifiers).
