The Smart Cube partners with ZIGRAM to significantly strengthen its Supplier Risk Intelligence solution
LONDON, 30 August 2022: The Smart Cube, a global provider of strategic research and analytics solutions, today announced a new alliance with ZIGRAM, a leading regulatory technology company that builds and manages Anti-Money Laundering (AML), Risk and Compliance data assets and technologies for global information services companies, advisory firms and financial services organisations.
The purpose of this alliance is to leverage ZIGRAM’s AML, Financial Crime Compliance (FCC), risk and sanctions products. It will deepen the coverage of The Smart Cube’s Supplier Risk Intelligence solution covering AML, FCC, blacklists, sanctions and reputation risk – for which ZIGRAM has one of the most comprehensive products, capabilities and technologies. This will enable The Smart Cube’s customers to identify, manage and mitigate multi-faceted risks associated with their suppliers, vendors and third parties.
With increasing regulations and rising awareness of social and ethical responsibilities, today’s enterprises need to ensure compliance with regulations related to anti-money laundering, anti-bribery, human rights, environmental crimes, trade compliance, terrorism, global sanctions, and data privacy. The cost of non-compliance can be very high – from financial penalties to brand and reputational damage. Based on data collected over the last 20 years by ZIGRAM’s money laundering events-based data platform ‘AML Penalties’, over $343 billion in fines and penalties have been levied on organisations over the last 20 years.
Prerna Dhawn, Chief Solutions Officer at The Smart Cube, said: “We are delighted to announce our alliance with ZIGRAM, which will see our Supplier Risk Intelligence solution significantly strengthened. With ZIGRAM providing one of the most in-depth data assets globally, the alliance will ensure business continuity for our customers, by helping them to respond to risks before their core business operations are impacted.”
Abhishek Bali, Co-Founder ZIGRAM, said: “We are really excited about our alliance with The Smart Cube. Integrating our data assets and machine learning-driven SaaS technologies with the existing Supplier Risk Intelligence solutions of The Smart Cube, will help clients leverage the power of risk and compliance data in not just ensuring scalable and cost-effective compliance but also in comprehensive risk mitigation across their supply chains.”
