Highbond by Galvanize

Highbond finally brings together what belongs together, seamlessly combining audit, risk management, compliance and internal control system within an integrated GRC platform.

The High­bond plat­form – an over­view

Move away from spreadsheets and information silos to an integrated GRC platform containing all key players. Highbond includes its own solution modules (“bonds”) for specialist areas such as audit, risk management, internal control system and compliance. However, these are seamlessly intermeshed with each other within a web platform, ensuring that all technical and content-related requirements are taken care of for the necessary interfaces. Cloud-based technology combines future-proofing and minimal technical requirements with the best user interface in this field. A further unique feature is the foundation, which is based on data analytics and thus ensures the required depth and content.

Essential solution modules (bonds)

While Highbond is an integrated platform, it has various key content-related areas. These modules (or “bonds”) form the main sub-products, the most important of which are outlined below.

Audit Bond

Are you looking for a solution to support you in your audit management, from planning, execution based on a checklist and documenting findings through to follow-up and reporting? Audit Bond offers precisely this, together with possibilities for seamlessly integrating data analyses. The end result is an audit report that is generated at the touch of a button, based on the recorded content and precisely formatted in your company's standard layout.

Con­trols Bond

Although similar in content to audit, the internal control system has its own requirements. The Controls Bond maps your risk control matrix and also includes the rolling out and testing of controls (including as part of SOX or JSOX scenarios). The transparency offered to both control owners and control performers via the mission control functionality is particularly exciting.

Risk Bond

Corporate risks (both operational and enterprise-level risks) are a key focus for both audit and the internal control system. Here, Highbond is distinct from other solutions as it places risks in the context of strategic corporate objectives. Risk management is also closely integrated with the results from data analyses, audits and testing of the internal control system. This enables transparent risk assessments (in some cases automated and always well-founded).

Compliance Bond

While compliance with relevant regulations and policies is essential in today's world, creating the necessary transparency is becoming increasingly difficult. Which regulations actually exist and are relevant, and which sub-areas and detailed requirements play a specific role/no role for individual departments within the company? Here, it is also crucial to integrate the specialist departments via self-assessments or other interaction functions. Compliance Bond offers all this without you having to consolidate an infinite number of Excel files or play e-mail ping pong.

Unique feature: data driven

Irrespective of which Bonds are of interest to you, a common feature of all modules is that they are based on data and analyses. While the ACL Robotics solution provides the analytics foundation, data that are centrally recorded as part of self-assessments or surveys also ensure that as well as being a modern, attractive and functional solution, Highbond is also materially underpinned with integrated data.
