September 05, 2008 | Palo Alto, California: MetricStream Inc., the market leader in enterprise-wide Governance, Risk, Compliance (GRC) and Quality Management solutions, today announced that a leading supplier of modular power components and complete power systems has selected the MetricStream solution for sustainable and cost-effective compliance including the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX).

The company offers power systems and modular power conversion components that are used in several high tech, industrial manufacturing and government markets. These systems and components are delivered with very short development cycles that make them a preferred supplier to manufacturers worldwide.

The MetricStream solution will enable the company to document their processes and controls in a central repository, test the effectiveness of internal controls and use that information to drive appropriate disclosure and remediation processes to achieve compliance with SOX. By providing a systematic mechanism for executing and tracking the SOX program, MetricStream will enable the customer to gain real-time visibility into their key compliance processes and reduce their risk of noncompliance. MetricStream will also offer specialized compliance training, alerts and content through, its leading portal and online community for governance, risk, compliance and quality.

"Companies are moving from running compliance programs in silos to establishing an enterprise-wide initiative for addressing all their compliance mandates," said Gaurav Kapoor, CFO and General Manager of MetricStream. "As companies begin to realize the value of a federated approach to Governance, Risk and Compliance, it becomes important to create a technology framework that would integrate disparate compliance initiatives and act as a catalyst in broadening and scaling the compliance adoption within the company."
