Q: What is due diligence?
 
A: Due diligence is a vital intelligence discipline and has become an indispensable tool that enables corporate decision-makers and their legal advisors to gain and maintain a competitive edge. Investigative due diligence explores issues and pursues lines of inquiry well beyond the information found in ledger books and contract clauses. Legal, financial, and business decision-makers responsible for strategic transactions and business relationships increasingly rely on investigative due diligence in their evaluation of pending business investments, acquisitions, joint ventures, board appointments, customer relationships, and executive hires.
Q: As a vendor why should I agree to be credentialed?
 
A: Your reputation is the lifeblood of your business. By credentialing through Compliance Depot, you can achieve “approved vendor” status at major companies that you may or may not currently do business with. In addition, you can save time & money by outsourcing operational matters, including:
  • Management of insurance certificates, reducing vendor operating costs and exposure to liability.
  • Alerts of any criminal activity of previously screened employees.
  • Management of you and your companies public data information.
Q: What are the costs associated with Compliance Depot’s Services?
A: The costs associated with the credentialing process are determined by the services requested by the Compliance Depot client.

 

 

Q: Are there fees for using Ops?
 
A: Yes, suppliers are charged fees for using the OpsTechnology software. OpsTechnology charges a small fee per invoice based on the invoice package selected during registration. The fees overtime will be significantly outweighed by the process saving that suppliers realize.

A: No, your invoice package can be shared with all Avesta communities and property management companies
 
 
Q: Will I be charged monthly?

  3. Key the invitation code into the Invitation Acceptance area

Q: Where do I find my account number to set up the communities?
 
A: The account number used should be your accounting systems unique identifier for each community. If you do not use account numbers, the community name can be unique. Please note that each community should have a unique name or number assigned.
 
Q: What is a WTN number and where do I find it?
 
A: A WTN number is a Work Tracking Number; this is often referred to as a PO (purchase order) number. If you are receiving orders in your OpsTechnology account, the WTN number will be displayed on your order. If you are an electronic invoice supplier, the WTN number should be provided to you by the community.
 
Q: I made a mistake on an invoice, how can I correct or void it?
