Magnet AXIOM Customer Testimonial

I was engaged to investigate an internal fraud within a large organization. Indicators were that tenders were being irregularly awarded.

With the speed and depth of the Magnet AXIOM search, I was quickly able to present evidence showing multiple bids being received from the same vendor with different tender values. From acquisition to the presentation of findings was less than 48 hours thanks to the speed of AXIOM.
