Upgrading From A Spreadsheet Based Process
Are you considering upgrading from a spreadsheet based process to a set of true GRC & Audit management tools? It is a great idea, for concrete business reasons.
First, your productivity will improve.
For example, with the system taking responsibility for sending out notifications and following up, valuable time will not be spent just chasing people around. Similarly, a good system will aggregate responses for review, relieving the burden of gathering and checking them one at a time. Dashboards tell you program status on demand – no pulling and organizing data. These are, of course, simple examples. With well defined workflows and automation, time per initiative can drop by as much as 50%.
Your work quality will also improve.
Data is captured once, logged with time and source and securely archived….no re-entering of data with the associated typos. When tests or assessments are being executed, you control what people enter, removing the inconsistency of free-form answer fields.
With your GRC & Audit data in the system, standard and ad-hoc reports can be generated, providing timely and accurate status. And, of course, team members can check and see their personal status at any time.
Finally, your GRC & Audit program will have expanded management control, with all information archived and all transactions logged. This provides current and historical information that external reviewers and auditors can rely upon, demonstrating program effectiveness and potentially reducing audit costs.
