Improving a company's vendor risk management process can be a daunting challenge. The question many firms face is: What platform gives my firm the needed functionality without high integration, support and software costs? These same firms look at the high cost of GRC applications and other risk management software, eventually deciding that much of these enterprise software's functionalities are overkill. Firms who have limited budgets, limited resources and don't want to delve into integration purgatory seek out, and ultimately adopt, Vendor360.

Vendor360 helps you manage all phases of risk management, including onboarding, assessments, analysis, monitoring, reporting and audits.

Its innovative and proven platform provides a wealth of vendor risk management capabilities at a fraction of the cost of VRM's used by large enterprise companies.
