Crowdsourcing Compliance

Enterprise solutions are powerful tools for internal use, but how can technology change the global landscape of compliance and have a positive impact on daily life?

That’s where crowdsourcing comes in.

Crowdsourcing is the process of outsourcing tasks to a non-centralized, distributed group of people working toward a common purpose. It can be a powerful tool when used to allow people to participate in a cause that is both good for business, and rewarding. 

A focus of our product development cycle at ethiXbase is finding ways for the greater community to participate in our corporate mission to be pro-business and pro-compliance. 

What we've learned from talking to hundreds of companies around the world is that they all share a common challenge: How to start and maintain a cost-effective and hassle-free supply chain compliance program?

We think we’ve solved it.  

We’ve created an infrastructure where people can support a higher level of global compliance by performing a small act that not only benefits them but their whole supply chain, both vertically and horizontally. And the cost is distributed evenly throughout the entire supply chain. . . . . . . . . . . . . Click image to view source page . . . . . . . .

Each company in our directory is given a unique, publicly available URL showing their certification status. Certified companies are also provided with a number that's unique to their company, and can be asked for and provided on any vendor onboarding program, due diligence report, or even credit report.
