Helping institutions comply with tougher regulations and oversight on technology and operational process.
B.I.S.S. Research, the exclusive research company, offering the elite industry benchmarking and accreditation of systems & services for the financial services sector, today announced that it has reached an agreement with Diliger, the e-sourcing portal for search and selection of suppliers to the global financial market place, to add B.I.S.S. Accreditations® into its search and selection directory.
Combining the B.I.S.S. Accreditations® with Diliger’s search and selection technology will provide the world’s first portal for independent analysis of systems, to aid in the reduction of the cost and risk associated with procurement by financial services firms. Vendors who have been awarded the Accreditation logo/s will be able to highlight their achievement/s, whilst buyers will be able to include the B.I.S.S. Accreditations in the search criteria. Reports on the Systems and Services that have undergone the benchmarking process and have achieved the various Accreditations, will be made available through linkage between the BISS and Diliger websites. Enabling buyers using the Diliger search and selection process to have access to unique content and independent analysis of the vendor’s system and service.
Gary Wright, C.E.O., B.I.S.S. Research and creator of the B.I.S.S. Accreditation said “We have been planning to build our own directory with a high quality search and selection capability for some time, but now see Diliger as a solution to realising our directory objectives. The search and selection capability, which Diliger have built so closely mirrored our own project that it seemed to make sense to join with it to help achieve our goal, whilst enhancing the value of Diliger for the benefit of the financial community and providing BISS accredited systems and services with increased exposure. We look forward to continuing to enhance the products available through BISS and Diliger.”
Christian Bower Diliger founder said “Institutions and their officers are increasingly accountable for the systems and partners they choose to work with. We deliver a research resource where investment professionals can reconcile requirements with stated capabilities helping institutions meet their obligations. There is an increasing need to have systems and services independently verified and B.I.S.S. Research is at the forefront of this endeavour. We are pleased to be able to offer this new functionality in our latest release, which also includes additional services such as “request for RFIs” from our listed members.”
