Enterprise Risk Management is an increasingly important objective for many businesses and can be challenging in environments where there are:
- Evolving standards and expectations
- Multiple data sources and systems
- Operational and informational silos
- Corporate governance expectations
Methodware has the answers to those challenges, thanks to the revolutionary new GRC platform, Kairos. It allows you to spend less time managing the process and more time focusing on the information and what it means to your business. Not only are you able to look at risk prevention but also identify opportunities and pursue the right ones.
Personalisation:Personalised GRC is the core promise of ERA Kairos. We help give users their own views of GRC, based on an organisation’s specific needs and data requirements. All they’ll need is a browser. With ERA Kairos, you have full drag-and-drop control over what your users see and how they use the system. Field positioning, ordering of screens, business logic – use our library of methods or build your own to simplify things for your end users and make life easy for you. This leads to a more intuitive experince for your users, so you can spend less time talking about how and more about why and what’s next.
Opportunity:Traditional GRC focuses on the negative side to risk – how much could we lose? What will the market think if we try something new? Are we protected? Although important, these questions don’t provide a complete picture. What about the upside? We believe that understanding the opportunities inherent in risk is just as important to your organisation. Efficiency, ease of use, better alignment with the business – these are all benefits of ERA Kairos that your business can leverage to pursue great opportunities. GRC has evolved – risk managers, compliance officers and internal auditors need to be able to show benefit to the organisation beyond filling out forms or ticking boxes and ERA provides that oppertunity.
Methods:Methods can be as simple or complex as you want, depending on your process and users. Use a single, basic screen or a series of linked screens full of information and design. Methods incorporate business logic and intelligent decision trees, so you can match your particular needs. The screens and steps of a method are all controlled by you, there’s no need for programming. You can create as many methods as you need, and since access to methods is based on user security, you can have different groups of users access the same data using different methods.
User Experience:ERA Kairos gives users views, like tabs in a browser allowing them to see information they need. Views can be set up as dashboards with graphs and lists targeted for individual users. Users are able to interact with GRC data and processes in a variety of ways. With ERA, users can have their own personal views of GRC based on the organisation’s needs and their role’s requirements.
