Optimize risks for improved bottom-line 

Doing business with sanctioned or embargo-affected companies can hit the profit and loss statement and cause reputational damage. With CDQ Cloud Services, your data is monitored continuously against the latest sanction and watch lists, and the corresponding monitoring report provides a summary on potential matches. Validation scope can be extended to PEPs (Politically Exposed Persons), too. 

Thanks to connectivity to local registers, you can also automate your tax ID verification and make sure that legal address, names and business identifiers are correct (i.e., GST numbers, tax identifiers, national identifiers and other third party and proprietary identifiers) with respect to existence, format, reference format, check digits and consistency.
