Arquia Banca, who specialise in catering to professionals’ financial needs in Spain, has recently become a member of the FSQS-ES community through Hellios. This partnership empowers Arquia to mitigate supply chain risks by overseeing supplier due diligence and compliance data. Furthermore, it creates stronger connections with industry peers, aligning with the collaborative approach needed to address growing regulatory demands effectively.

In contrast to conventional supplier management methods, which entail recording and overseeing extensive volumes of supplier compliance data individually, Hellios offers a streamlined solution. Through a user-friendly dashboard, organisations gain immediate access to a comprehensive overview of all suppliers and their information. Arquia stands to gain two notable advantages from this partnership. Firstly, it will save time and resources by minimising the administrative workload associated with 3rd party data management. Secondly, it will enable Arquia to engage in discussions and address industry-wide supply chain challenges through an active peer community.

Xavier Ventura, CEO of Arquia Banca, said: “We operate in a complex regulatory environment; therefore, it is essential to have a robust system that allows optimal management with suppliers, minimizing risks in the supply chain as much as possible. The collaboration with Hellios allows us to continue advancing in security, offering the best service to our clients, hand in hand with a leading community in our sector”.

Colin Maund, CEO of Hellios, said: “We are delighted to welcome Arquia Banca to the FSQS community and look forward to equipping them with the insights needed to manage their supplier risk. They will receive immediate benefit in becoming a member of this thriving community by gaining instant access to the suppliers already registered and deemed ‘fit for business’ on the system.”
