Complete Vendor Monitoring
S&T Bancorp, Inc. selects VendorInsight® for vendor risk management

May 9, 2011 – S&T Bancorp, a bank holding company with approximately $4 Billion in assets, has entered into an agreement with CMPG for the purchase and use of its third party and vendor risk management solution, VendorInsight®.

According to S&T Senior Vice President of Banking Operations and IT, Rob Werner, “VendorInsight® was selected because of the strength of their solution and their forward-looking perspective. We selected VendorInsight® after a thorough review of all the competing solutions in the marketplace."

"VendorInsight® is helping enhance S&T's vendor and third party risk management program, giving them access to a sophisticated and flexible suite of fully-automated features," says Grant Karnes, the executive that oversees the program. "S&T is an organization built on trust and delivering value to its customers and VendorInsight®'s governing principles align well with those core values."

Werner adds, "The unique business model of VendorInsight® delivered a standout value proposition to us that we did not witness with other solutions. We are already realizing benefits from having a dedicated program administrator at VendorInsight® oversee and manage our system content. Also, the news service and risk monitoring that VendorInsight® delivers to us for our critical vendors enables a better balance of centralized control and decentralized accountability across our vendor monitoring and management activities."

VendorInsight® is the only vendor risk management solution in the marketplace that offers a vendor monitoring and alerting service as a part of its core system, says Karnes.

VendorInsight® has taken a leadership position among Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) solutions providers, offering a best-in-class solution for third party and vendor risk management and relationship management. The recently-announced introduction of BCP-INSIGHT™ later this year, will extend CMPG's GRC suite into another critical area of need, business continuity planning and management. BCP-INSIGHT™ will apply a revolutionary, universal framework that replicates the elegant simplicity and user-friendliness of VendorInsight®. This will enable companies to completely organize, test and manage their business continuity and disaster recovery programs with ease, on one platform, in less time, and using fewer resources.
