Financial Health Rating for Information Technology

Information technology (IT) outsourcing decisions have evolved from from technical, operational, or procurement decisions, to strategic decisions affecting the risk and security posture of the organizations.  Front page headlines of security breaches, disruptions, and fraud caused by third-parties has reinforced the need for timely and accurate vendor assessment.

Rapid Ratings enables IT professionals to gain visibility into the financial stability of vendors and suppliers that provide or manage information assets and IT infrastructure.   We provide forward looking and actionable analysis of a company’s financial health which enables IT organizations to minimize business continuity risk, satisfy compliance mandates, and build organizational resiliency around their third-party programs.

Assess the Financial Viability of IT Vendors and Suppliers

Rapid Ratings’ proprietary FHR® (Financial Health Rating) is the industry’s leading assessment of public and private company financial health.  Our quantitative rating, the FHR is a true comparison of company financial health on a straightforward and consistent 0-100 scale and provides early warning (12 month forward looking) on a companies’ deterioration or improvement.  With greater insight into vendors’ financial stability, organizations can better monitor, manage, and mitigate third-party risks.
