What happens if we don’t register and provide the information requested?
We know responding to information requests can be time consuming and involves sensitive information. Your customer or prospect selected the Hiperos Network because it facilitates this process for both parties in a secure environment that’s easily accessible to all approved stakeholders. You record and maintain the most commonly requested information about your company once in the Hiperos Network, and then you can share it with customers and prospects you choose. You will eliminate duplicate effort and automate information sharing, review and approval processes; saving you time and money. In the end, it’s about working together to reduce the costs, control the risks and increase the performance of your business relationships. Many Hiperos Network customers require their third parties to provide the information requested through the Network as a condition for establishing and maintaining the business relationship.
