BWise Launches Templated Governance, Risk & Compliance Implementation Program
Twelve Years of Compliance Experience Rolled Into Numerous User Friendly Templates
New York, NY., December 11, 2006 – BWise, a leading provider of compliance and enterprise risk management software, today announced the launch of a fully templated Governance, Risk & Compliance (GRC) implementation program. This program enables publicly traded companies of all sizes to easily leverage the hundreds of BWise GRC implementations already in place.
The implementation program is bundled in numerous templates:
- COSO Guidance for Small companies
The guidance published earlier this year by the COSO Committee to help companies comply with Sarbanes-Oxley, has now been bundled into a template that is easy to implement.
IT Governance is structured with CobiT 3.0 and 4.0 to help IT organizations comply with increasing regulatory compliance demands.
- EZ Control
The BWise “In Control” solution designed for small and medium-size businesses enables fast and effective compliance with Sarbanes-Oxley and other regulatory requirements.
- ISO 9000, 14000, 17799
Quality Management with various ISO standards is structured and streamlined with these templates.
- Basel II
Operational Risk in Basel II for financial services organizations is implemented using the BWise template.
This templated approach enables an industry leading GRC solution to be implemented within 20 days; the software is installed and configured, authorizations are set, templated content is uploaded, compliance workflows are set-up and key-users are trained. The rapid approach gives organizations the ability to more quickly leverage the corporate-wide convergence of compliance and business process improvements.
“BWise is continuously looking for ways to make corporate governance, risk management and compliance not only easier, but more results-oriented,” stated Robert Pijselman, Chief Executive Officer of BWise. “With the templated implementation program, companies can pick and choose the areas on which they want to focus and achieve progress more quickly, leveraging BWise’s significant experience in helping organizations turn compliance into business success.”
