Simplify and Streamline the Management of Governance, Risk, and Compliance Issues
Organizations across industries grapple with issues arising from risk management, compliance, audits, and other governance processes. The issues are often documented and managed using siloed systems or cumbersome spreadsheets. This manual approach wastes time, effort, and resources. It also limits the ability of managers to track the status of issues at an enterprise level, in a timely manner.
The MetricStream Issue Management App enables a systematic and integrated approach towards managing governance, risk, and compliance issues. The app provides a single system for enterprise-wide issue management initiatives, thereby strengthening compliance and risk management, while reducing the associated costs. Through an integrated approach, the app facilitates cross-functional coordination and collaboration on issue management, and helps align these processes centrally with corporate governance and reporting objectives. At the same time, it helps ensure that issue ownership, management, and accountability are distributed among the various lines of business.Download Datasheet

Capture detailed information about each issue, and categorize it based on pre-defined criteria and severity levels. Route the issue to an authorized approver (based on pre-configured rules for review, approval, and disposal) along with supporting documents. The approver can cancel the issue if it is found to be inconsistent or invalid.
Once an issue is approved, generate an action plan for issue remediation. Capture all essential details about the action plan, route it for approval, and distribute it to the pre-defined action plan owner/s. You can also suggest an action plan during the issue creation or initiation stage without going through the approval process. In the absence of the issue owner, delegate the issue and action plan to another user without changing the ownership. Enable authorized users to provide comments or feedback on ongoing issues. Once the action plans are implemented, approve, close, reject, follow-up, or extend them for further clarification.
Enable action owners to capture the work done as part of the recommended action plan. Route the action details for review, approval, and closure. Receive a periodic status update from action owners regarding the progress of issue management activities. Integrate these updates in issue and action reports that help managers track the status of issues from one stage to the next.
