Achieve competitive advantage by leveraging on new technologies that will integrate the GRC framework to promote visibility, produce accurate reports needed for operational decision making, and to ensure integrity-driven performance. GRC software is a key component in the implementation and maintenance of GRC processes.

What is the role of software in the constantly changing GRC environment? Here are the core functions of GRC software that will shape the future of organizations:

  • An integrated regulatory change management platform that serves as a database for delineating GRC components that will manage behavioral risk and audit gaps as a result of regulatory changes. It provides the organization a single platform to keep track of the regulatory changes, to prevent organizations from over and under complying with the regulations. Organizations need a sophisticated and scale-able way to manage the regulations that apply to them as over complying and under complying with regulations or standards can be very costly.
