In today’s multifaceted business world, organizations are grappling with a range of internal and external issues arising from risk management, compliance, audits, and other governance processes. To manage and track these issues, many enterprises leverage manual, spreadsheet-based tools. This approach often consumes time, effort, and resources. It also limits enterprise-wide visibility into issues, and slows down the decision-making process.
To strengthen compliance and risk management, it is imperative that organizations manage issues in a simple, systematic, and organized manner. It is also critical that organizations be able to analyze large volumes of issue related data in real time, and automate the issue management process, so that senior stakeholders have a 360-degree view of all issues within the enterprise at any given time.Download Fact Sheet

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. Enable the approver to 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.
