Corporations, businesses and commercial real estate income-producing property owner/operators have significant procurement fraud exposure and exposure to embezzlement risk.
Stopping procurement fraud is only one part of the solution. Procurement fraud and embezzlement happen due to a variety of threat factors, so email monitoring and filtering programs can only be reasonably expected to help mitigate the loss events – not prevent the fraud and embezzlement owing to corporate procurement activities from happening in the first place. In the case of Matel, the fraud extended to spoofing email traffic and corporate documents inside the company’s server supposedly originating from the CEO. The resulting $3 million loss would not have been expected to be stopped by an email or other cyber security program.
In other cases, the procurement fraud is internal and involves lapping or false vendor deliveries by which corporate insiders gain an illegal profit. These types of fraud schemes are the type that can continue for years without detection by the current crop of programs and services. The reason is simple: the current systems either address only a symptom of the problem or leave open other avenues by which fraud and/or embezzlement can continue.
The iCREDIT program specifically addresses the problem of accounts payable fraud as it is realized based upon the totality of the issues facing the business (i.e.: funds custody, vendor performance risk, liability transference risk, execution risk, forensic audit trail performance, payment validation, and financial reporting transparency). This approach provides elimination of various forms of fraud and embezzlement as the only outcome because iCREDIT functions in a fundamentally different way to process payments than conventional approaches provide, thus false invoices only serve to identify fraud on the spot because there should be no invoices.

The INVIZEN Platform was conceptually designed to support the end-goal of preventing investment losses from being realized on commercial real estate loans and investments.
The INVIZEN Platform design construct offers an end-to-end approach that engages the project or business at whatever life-cycle stage the given project or business may be currently found to be operating within. The INVIZEN Platform is designed to provide a progressive sweep of the entire due diligence spectrum of issues with every review. It starts with the valuation of the transaction opportunity.
Collateral underwriting is important but the reality is that collateral underwriting really only comes into play for EAD calculations and insurance risk mitigation. The value of the opportunity is the real issue and the Verifier Report from INVIZEN directly addresses this issue in terms of determining if the proposed transaction is priced at a discount to market based upon the specific risk profile presented by the project, the project’s business and the project’s market. That’s the Verifier Report.
Market Risk Management
First Look is our real-time market feasibility analysis reporting system for which there is no peer. The next-gen analytics design of First Look provides testing of the empirical assumptions and findings of the market feasibility analysis to determine if a reasonable basis exists for their inclusion and/or use in the resulting report that includes detail you just can’t find anywhere else. That’s the First Look Report.
Financial Risk Assessment Underwriting
Final Check is the crown jewel of the INVIZEN Platform. Final Check provides full capacity risk underwriting, collateral risk underwriting, credit risk underwriting and default risk underwriting financial risk assessment data and findings that is backed by a post-funding monitoring program that prevents the most common causes of credit and default risk events from becoming your loss severity risk realities. That’s Final Check and there is just nothing like it.
The outflow is then matched into our unique credit risk management platform that ties credit risk (again, think hard about managing CECL) and default risk prevention program known as iCREDIT.
This unique system provides real-time forensic auditing of every transaction event and generates an entirely new set of GAAP financial statements for the benefit of all financial partners that can be accessed in real-time.
Financial reporting transparency risk, execution risk, default risk and all of the associated risks are now within the scope of being proactively managed. That’s the INVIZEN approach that makes the difference in everything we do.
