“We’ve been through three exam cycles and have not had one exam finding or recommendation on my third-party vendor management. This week the CEO asked when a contract expired. I had easy access to that and didn’t have to go through the paper file looking for the original MSA. If they are going to be my advocate, I will be one for them as well. I’ll talk up my Nvendor and be as happy as a clam and be an advocate."

"Quickly onboarding vendors has always been an issue with our vendor owners. It’s not something they’re doing all the time, let alone something they’re used to doing. That’s something that Venminder kind of lacked. They didn’t have that process. What I like about Nvendor is that it takes the whole vendor and looks at everything — everything that applies to the vendor is all there. And your support has been amazing."

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What is Third-Party Risk Management (TPRM)? 

Third-party risk management, also known as vendor management, is the systems and processes a financial institution or other organization uses to identify, measure, mitigate, and monitor risks associated with third-party relationships. These relationships include vendors, service providers, fintech partners, contractors, and consultants

What Is Third-Party Risk Management Software?

TPRM software, also known as vendor risk management software, is an automated tool for implementing a vendor risk management program. Software should empower financial institutions to document vendor management processes; identify, manage, monitor, and mitigate third-party vendor risk; document the reasoning behind choosing and maintaining specific vendor relationships; help analyze contracts and track key dates; quickly and easily generate reports; demonstrate board oversight; and tie into a bank’s overall approach to managing risk. 

Why do financial institutions like banks and credit unions need Third-Party Risk Management (TPRM) Software?

The Interagency Guidance on Third-Party Relationships: Risk Management, published by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), and the Federal Reserve, warns that banks are responsible for the actions their third-party vendors.  

If a third-party working on a bank’s behalf experiences a service disruption, violates a law or regulations, harms consumers, damages the bank’s reputation, or experiences a data breach, regulators won’t blame the vendor. They will blame the bank for poor oversight. Third-party risk assessment software gives banks the tools to manage TPRM relationships from beginning to end with greater visibility into the risks of working with vendors. 

Credit unions, mortgage companies, fintechs, trust companies and other companies in the financial services sector can also benefit from TPRM software. Vendor risk management systems are a best practice. Consumers, members, and other partners don’t care who if technically it wasn’t your organization that made the mistake. Their relationship is with your organization, and they will hold you accountable. 

What should I look for in TPRM software?

Look for TPRM software specifically designed for your industry. The financial services industry has its own regulatory expectations and vocabulary surrounding vendor management. Instead of focusing on supply chains and inventory, your solution should be developed and maintained by financial services experts with real-world experience and a detailed understanding of your regulatory requirements, expectations, and the language you use.  

Software should also be secure, cloud-based, and customizable to your need.
