New Dow Jones Service Targets Risk Management

Oct 21, 2010

Dow Jones & Company is debuting a new service that provides ongoing, active monitoring of a wide range of potential threats in risk management. Dow Jones Supplier & Risk Monitor offers proactive monitoring of numerous types of risk, including supplier failure, supply continuity, political exposure, reputation management, product safety, plant and port closures, staffing disruptions, and others.

The new service draws on more than 25,000 media sources from 150 countries and monitors the news for events that could affect suppliers, rather than relying solely on financial data. It allows companies to view a more complete picture of critical partners and regions, while enabling supply chain managers to perform research and due diligence to evaluate new partners.

Dow Jones Supplier & Risk Monitor can be fully customized with widgets installed into a customer's workflow or hosted in a dashboard format. In addition, users can set up alerts, so they can be informed about key news and information by email or mobile device.
