Business Challenge

As part of a Third-Party Due Diligence tool evaluation, LafargeHolcim strived to widen the scope of due diligence conducted on its counterparties and required a tool which had the capabilities to develop workable solutions for the many risks involved in onboarding counterparties.

Solution Overview

Global change creates new opportunities, but it also generates risks. Over time organizations must grapple with external changes that are outside of their control – from regulators, competitors, or emerging risks.

Procuring Symfact’s Third-Party Risk Management software enhanced with a company-wide risk-matrix formulated by Fulcrum Diligence, a specialist provider of due diligence services, LafargeHolcim was able to deploy an agile, innovative, and risk-based solution to conduct more thorough due diligence. Symfact were able to integrate a number of historically independent processes into a single one which increased efficiency immensely.
