RapidRatings, Opus Announce Integration Delivering Financial Viability & Operational Resilience Insights for Managing Third-Party Risk

Technology integration delivers Financial Health Ratings (FHR®) and Core Health Scores (CHS™) at the portfolio and individual third-party level

NEW YORK & BRANCHBURG, N.J.--()--RapidRatings™, provider of the most sophisticated analysis of the financial health of public and private companies in the world, and Opus, leader in compliance and risk management SaaS technology, today announced a strategic partnership and the integration of predictive financial health analytics into Opus’ Hiperos 3PM™ platform.

The technology integration utilizes the RapidRatings Extraction API to deliver key financial health data including the Financial Health Rating, a representation of the short-term operating resilience, and Core Health Score, an indication of financial viability, directly within the Hiperos 3PM’s reports and dashboards. Out-of-the box integration and real-time delivery of critical financial analytics allows mutual clients to take a streamlined approach by easily identifying the risk posture of a single company or a portfolio of third parties directly within the broader risk assessment process.

“Getting a clear picture of a third party’s financial health brings transparency into the relationship and allows organizations to make informed decisions,” said Eric Evans, Managing Director of Business Development at RapidRatings. “However, risk management is only part of the equation. A forward-looking view into a third party’s financial viability enables them to use risk as a competitive advantage to maintain operational efficiency and identify opportunities for growth.”

“Third parties – whether vendors, suppliers or customers – are a significant source of compliance and information security risk,” said Lee Kirschbaum, Senior Vice President, Product, Marketing and Alliances. “Effectively managing these risks means looking across risk dimensions – from regulatory to financial viability and beyond. Partnering with RapidRatings helps us provide this multi-dimensional view of risk so our clients can make faster, better decisions in compliance and risk management and gain an extraordinary advantage in the marketplace.”
