Data-based Audit-Management. For audit and risk management, results management and follow-up, ACL™ offers the best and most user-friendly solution on the market – also optimised for tablets and smartphones with 4 powerful modules.
ACL™ GRC - Overview
Data analytics are just part of your risk management scenario. ACL™ GRC is a state-of-the-art audit management solution with maximum usability combined with minimum implementation effort. It consists of four integrated modules. Risk and audit management including documentation and follow-up, results management and surveys. ACL™ GRC is a complete, stand-alone solution. It does not require any other ACL™ products and can also be combined with other analytics tools.
What risks does your company face and how high is the probability of occurrence and any resulting impact? You can determine this here.
Which companies and departments fall within the scope of risk? The relevance of risks varies depending on the business processes involved.
Graphic visualisations showing the combination of risks and your organisational units help you plan your audits and risk-management activities.
You're not alone when assessing risk. At the click of a button, you can consult your team members for their opinion – allowing you to arrive at a sound risk assessment in a transparent and documented way.
Describe background and objectives, save planning information and assign responsibilities.
When combined together, risks and controls give the RCM (Risk Control Matrix). You design your work schedules and fieldwork around this objective basis.
Sometimes, you realise that controls are proving ineffective. Effortlessly record process weaknesses and findings in the form of documents, files, images, videos or audio recordings.
You have identified findings which require action. Plan, delegate and monitor all follow-up activities directly in ACL™ GRC without clogging up your email in-box.
Sometimes it's impossible to avoid processing and documenting findings in the form of data records. Upload your Excel™ or ACL™ results using drag&drop, add comments, assign them to colleagues and comment on each individual finding.
Perhaps the best way to concisely present even complex results to upper management. Add brief texts to describe clear visualisations on a single page and distribute it easily via a weblink.
Do you want to trigger an action automatically if your results meet a certain condition? Example: Email a department if unusual changes to bank data are identified. Triggers and workflows make this possible.
Regardless of whether you want to obtain structured information prior to an audit or make whistleblower forms available, ACL™ GRC offers this wonderfully easy to use function.
Show clearly what you have done and your current position. This can be done across audits for almost any criteria (countries, departments, processes, findings, follow-up statistics).
With ACL™ GRC and the Reports module, you detach yourself from the individual audit and create an overview of the whole situation. This is ideal for communication with senior management.
For the follow-up process in particular, it’s important to have an overview of the current status at all times. Which measures are outstanding, which represent focus areas and what progress has been made?
Let's talk about money
Licence fees are a key factor when you decide to acquire new software – although not the only one. Drawn-out implementation, updating and customizing processes often appear on the scene trailing external and internal costs. Total cost of ownership (TCO) is what this is all about. You are safe with ACL™ GRC: there are no installation or update expenses. The lean, easy-to-use solution focuses on the essentials: supporting you so you don’t have to worry about technology and additional effort and expense.
Edit documents online without overwriting versions. Old versions can be reactivated at any time.
ACL™ GRC is designed for teamwork. Share the workload, share information and keep an eye on the status.
The ability to use mobile terminals such as iPhones or iPads as a scanner or upload videos and images via an app is a really cool feature.
Cloud-based work and offline work don't have to conflict with each other. ACL™’s apps allow you to continue working offline at any time where required – for example on a plane or in a hotel.
No installation required
As easy as using the Internet. The days when you had to bother IT for complex installation and update processes are a thing of the past. Simply use your web browser.
No more Piecemail
Email skirmishes are a thing of the past. ACL™ GRC requests the information for you and collates it thematically at a central location.
Cloud vs. trust
The “Cloud” is gaining importance in making software easier to maintain, minimising IT costs for customers and meeting users’ wishes to be able to access solutions on a mobile basis from many different terminals. In addition to ACL™ GRC, SAP®, Microsoft™ and Adobe® are just three examples of this trend. ACL™ GRC is hosted in Munich, so that the appropriate legislation applies in matters of data protection.
