Advanced GRC Software

Advanced GRC Software

GRC is an abbreviation of Governance, Risk and Compliance. The GRC model aligns risk, compliance and IT with organizational business objectives. Modern GRC software solutions offer a preferred approach towards regulatory compliance – benefitting banking and financial services organizations by enhancing efficiency, competitiveness and profitability.

Governance, risk, and compliance management and reporting have traditionally been managed manually by organizations, often resulting in data silos, conflicting or overlapping processes and inefficiency. Today’s risk and compliance stakeholders recognize that aligning business units with risk and compliance processes and data management better positions banking and financial services organizations to succeed. A unified GRC software solutions approach enables management to ensure that organizations are holistically coordinated when it comes to governance, risk, and compliance initiatives – resulting in higher efficiency and lower costs. Today’s GRC software offer full, out-of-the-box GRC solutions as well as individual GRC software tools.

What are the Challenges Solved by GRC Tools?

GRC solutions enhance risk and compliance productivity, communication and efficiency through workflow automation, predictive data insights and automated monitoring. In today’s fast-paced regulatory environment, legacy software and manual processes introduce inefficiencies that create challenges across the organization:

  • Business units rely on disparate or siloed risk, compliance and governance data
  • Without a centralized GRC system approach, management is unable to holistically assess the risk and compliance status of the organization
  • Important documents distributed between various email threads, inboxes, computers, and files
  • Organizations lack systematic management of audits, vendors and policies

Modern GRC Tool Value

Modern GRC Tool Value

The importance of governance, risk, and compliance is that it allows businesses to achieve higher productivity, avoid monetary and reputational losses, and make better business decisions. Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) increases productivity through automation and streamlined workflows for risk and compliance processes. It helps avoid monetary and reputational losses through monitoring. GRC helps the board make better decisions by delivering them better reports, insights, and risk predictions.

To truly understand the importance of GRC tools, we need to understand the change that they can bring to an organization. Managing risk and compliance is not optional – it is an integral part of any business that operates in a heavily regulated industry like finance, healthcare, or oil and gas. Businesses that do not employ GRC tools must thus manage risk and compliance through other, less efficient means.

Alternatives to GRC Tools

Alternatives to GRC Tools

Most small businesses manage risk and compliance through general purpose software rather than purpose-built GRC tools. The software most commonly used is Microsoft Excel. Microsoft Excel plays a major role in the financial sector. While Excel may be the best solution possible for crunching numbers, analyzing trends, and keeping records, it is not the ideal solution for risk or compliance management.

That is because keeping records is just a part of risk and compliance. Risk and compliance are also not concerned primarily with numbers – some calculations are involved, but a lot of the information is present in the form of documents.

GRC Tools Link Risk and Compliance

GRC Tools Link Risk and Compliance

The most important differentiation between GRC tools and using Microsoft Excel for risk and compliance is that GRC tools allow businesses to map links between risk and compliance concerns. GRC tools work on a centralized platform. This means that if new data is entered into the system, it automatically appears in all the documents it should be linked to. So, if a new compliance issue is generated, it will automatically be placed in a compliance report. If new data is entered about a risk, it will automatically be displayed wherever the risk is displayed.

This saves a lot of labor hours and allows the risk and compliance departments to work faster. It also allows the organization to gain a better grasp on the risk and compliance activities across the organization. Since everything is interconnected, it is easy to grasp the effect one activity has on another process.
