Leading American Automaker Selects Aravo to Manage Its Global Third Party Risk and Compliance Program

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., April 27, 2016 – Aravo Solutions, the only platform that can support the complex third party risk and compliance demands of Global 2000 organizations, announced today that a leading American automaker has signed a multi-year agreement with Aravo to power their global third party risk and compliance program. When fully deployed, the Aravo Enterprise solution will provide automated risk management for over 700,000 third parties. The solution will automatically initiate risk mitigation for high-risk third parties, enabling the company to conduct due diligence.

Before adopting Aravo, the company had been relying on ad hoc data collection through manual processes, forms, and the use of a due-diligence repository. To make its compliance programs more comprehensive and efficient, the company chose Aravo for third party compliance. Leveraging deep domain expertise and scalable cloud technology, the Aravo solution will provide the company’s business leaders and compliance teams with a single view of the “truth” about the company’s hundreds of thousands of third parties.

“We are honored to be working with a world leading automaker and such a globally recognized brand,” said Aravo Solutions CEO, Michael Saracini. “Third parties in the automotive industry extend across a very broad spectrum, from business consultants to specialized parts suppliers to software engineering firms. We have designed our cloud-based platform to be flexible and scalable enough to manage extraordinarily high numbers of geographically distributed third parties serving globally diverse needs. We look forward to working closely with our newest customer as they broaden and optimize their global third party compliance program.”
