Manage supply chains

How well do you really know your vendors and suppliers? Open Desk helps with procurement services including vetting, researching, and monitoring those who represent and/or service your business, resulting in a more confident and transparent business partnership/relationship.

Perform due diligence

The Internet has infinite amounts of information. Open Desk researchers verify facts and data on people, places, and businesses nationwide. This level of research is crucial in providing business leaders with information they need to make sound decisions.

Manage risk

Understanding potential risks saves time and money. Open Desk serves as a neutral party in fact finding, validating, and delivering information and affiliations which minimizes unnecessary risks, fraud, or harm to businesses.

Monitor brand reputation

Market awareness of corporate brands, reputation, and online feedback are critical components to customer engagement. In real-time, Open Desk discovers what customers are saying, what former and current employees are sharing, and how your business’s reputation is perceived in the marketplace.
