External Verification

Constant verification of data is important to prevent incomplete, inaccurate, and duplicate records. To assist with maintaining accurate vendor data, MDO offers external verification utilizing third party services. 

Using an external source of information such as Duns and Bradstreet, MDO can automatically check the validity of data provided by vendors against the data registered at the third-party service providers. For example, a check can be performed based upon the input of a valid Unique ID (such as a DUNS number).

The data verification outcome can then be utilized by the Reviewer to validate the vendor details.
