OCEAN, N.J., March 6, 2012 -- Compliance automation tools developer, RISC Associates, announces the release of Enterprise Program Manager(TM) (EPM) 2.0, a dashboard-driven Risk, Audit, Compliance and IT Management program.
"EPM 2.0 has been modularized and enhanced to address the individual needs of Risk, Audit, Compliance and IT professionals while still providing a view of all initiatives enterprise-wide for senior management," stated Mick Kless, President of RISC Associates. "The addition of qualitative risk criteria, risk weighting, dimensions of risk and heat maps have turned the EPMrisk module into an outstanding ERM tool. The EPMaudit module has been greatly enhanced with new features and a charting package making it the ideal audit management tool with reports suitable for senior management and the Audit Committee," continued Kless.
"Add in EPMreviewer for automated management and scheduling of Filings, Disclosures, Policy and Standards Review, EPMtest for managing any type of technical testing and EPMexaminer for exam & audit preparation and you have an incredibly powerful automated enterprise management solution. Every module allows you to create, assign, track and manage remediation items as well. Whether you buy a single module or the entire suite, EPM is an extremely productive tool for any size organization."
"Being able to integrate Audits, Assessments, Tests and Reviews and aggregate results enterprise-wide is a huge advantage that EPM brings to the table and solves a major challenge faced by most organizations," noted David Schneier, Managing Director of Product Development. "It's the ideal solution for anyone who wishes to keep their thumb on the pulse of the enterprise. Instead of tracking multiple spreadsheets, relying upon phone calls, emails and endless meetings to understand the status of departmental silos, one look at the EPM dashboard tells the entire story enterprise-wide. There is no better tool for understanding where you stand in terms of meeting your Regulatory, Corporate and Departmental goals. I've been working on audit, risk and compliance projects since 1991 and EPM would have had a dramatic impact on every one of them from SEC to SOX to GLBA to HIPAA to QMSSA to ROHS and everything in between. EPM instantly pays for itself."
Enterprise Program Manager(TM) is fully customizable and comes with a wide variety of pre-populated and fully editable industry-standard audits, assessments, reviews and tests. Charts, pre-formatted reports and Ad Hoc reporting are also included. Existing audit, compliance and risk programs can easily be imported into EPM and any electronic file can be attached to any record.
