What is due dilligence?
Whether it's called background screening or third party risk management, in essence due diligence is about knowing the identity and reputation of business partners and customers. For some industries, like financial services and art dealing, due diligence is required by strict laws (e.g. the EU's Anti-Money Laundering Directives) and industry guidelines (e.g. the Financial Action Task Force's guidelines). The moral of the story is that you need to be compliant and careful.
Is due diligence worth it?
Absolutely. According to research from PwC, companies lose some 42 billion USD to fraud every year. Due diligence is a matter of being safe, not sorry. A little skin in the game up front can prevent future complications for you and your customer.
Is due diligence expensive?
Due diligence processes can, of course, be costly. To maintain a team of investigators tasked with making heads or tails of the reams of data generated each second on the Internet is not sustainable for SMEs. Cluez's elegant user interface and speedy smart technology allow you to avoid these expenses while getting top quality results.
Does Cluez tell me if someone's a bad guy?
Yes, but no. The app searches the Internet for your search subject and shows the relevant negative results to allow you to make an informed business decision.
