Choosing a Business Intelligence, Risk, Compliance or Audit system is an important decision. Think about what you want. Reports, dashboards and other outputs that provide the information you, your boss and your colleagues need on demand. User interfaces that make it easy to do the job, without a lot of training. A system that takes on the administrative burden, so you don’t have to chase people around to get them to do their jobs or spend a lot of time cross-checking inputs.
These are some key capabilities to look for in a GRC software solution. They should assure that you will have a system that meets your needs, and the needs of your management and business partners.
Business Intelligence Ease of Use: User screens need to be straightforward, showing needed information and no more. Actions need to be readily accessible. With this, your users will be happier, the quality of their work better and your training costs lowered.
DoubleCheck offers use-case driven user interfaces and configurable workbenches, tailored to the task at hand. Your users will find it easy to see what they need to see (and nothing more) and do what they need to do.
Configurable Data and Workflows: While standards exist between the information and processes used to manage risk, compliance and audit, every firm has its own nuances of how the process works and what information needs to be collected, analyzed and reported. You’ll want a system that adapts to your information and processes, so you are not forced into an awkward solution or paying for custom development.
With DoubleCheck’s rich data management capabilities and configurable workflows, we’ll be able to support your business information structure and processes without a big development project.
Rich Business Intelligence Reporting, with Visuals and Notifications: Outputs really matter. You’ll want to be able to communicate status, results and insights in easy to understand ways to your boss, to the board, to your colleagues. You’ll want the system to notify users with the right information if some action is required.
DoubleCheck offers a rich set of dashboards and reports which you can configure. We also offer an optional integrated Embedded Business Intelligence module, helping you take reporting, analysis and visualization to the next level, with powerful ad-hoc analysis and reporting features.
Business Intelligence Expandability: It is very common to start in one area such as risk, compliance or audit and then over time, want to add new features, new applications or modules. Make sure your system can grow and change as your company evolves.
DoubleCheck offers straightforward upgrade paths. With DoubleCheck, you can add new modules without an expensive forklift upgrade. And you can share information across the modules as needed while maintaining the privacy and security required.
Predictable Business Intelligence Implementations: Implementations can be a challenge. Before you buy, you’ll want to be sure your supplier understands what you need and can do it on time and on budget.
Hourly-based implementation proposals are common but potentially open the door to cost and time overruns. By spending a little time with us up front (no charge), we’ll give you a fixed price proposal and we’ll deliver on it, guaranteed.
Ease of Implementation: You should not have to materially change your existing GRC process to implement. The system should not require months of customization. You should not have to wait a year to see results.
DoubleCheck will have your implementation up and running on an agreed schedule. With configuration adaptable to your existing GRC process, our GRC experts make the implementation straightforward and manageable with limited demands on your time or staff.
Price: Price always matters. Make sure you have a good understanding of all your costs, including right to use the software, reliable implementation costs, IT costs, training costs and any other professional services.
DoubleCheck offers reasonable, competitive pricing tailored to your needs. Give us a call – no mysteries here.
