Due diligence is a complex investigation, audit or review to check and confirm a company’s condition. Due diligence falls into three main categories: legal due diligence, financial due diligence and commercial due diligence. Manual due diligence is not only expensive but also time– consuming. Moreover, it is believed that 60% of companies view compliance as a barrier to entering new markets. Companies struggle with inflated costs and slow turnaround times to diligence checks. Furthermore, checks need to be refreshed periodically across different scenarios like supply chain, funds, sustainability, and more.
