Know Your Business Partner - Holistic Third Party Management Platform

Focus on collaboration - not administration

Increasing complexity of business relationships

In our complex, globalized and digitized world, companies are forced to interact with an increasing number of business partners. At the same time, business relations are more intricate than ever due to increasing regulatory requirements. Furthermore, public pressure demanding transparency surges, putting companies in the position of having to carefully manage their business partners. In this environment, integrity matters! Overall, an insufficient business partner management results in an unnecessarily high business risk as well as immensely high administrative costs.

Manage relations with your external business partners

PwC’s Know Your Business Partner Platform (KYBP)​ is an automated software solution allowing clients to implement a process to ensure compliance and quality by simultaneously significantly decreasing the administrative effort. KYBP enables corporations of all sizes and industries to manage their business relationships effectively as well as risk-adequately and to ensure the integrity of all partners in a process-oriented manner. The business relationship tool guides you along the entire process from determination of requirements up to contract conclusion and internal documentation.
