Enhancing compliance effectiveness with expertise, technology and tools
Plainsboro NJ and Alpharetta GA – 31 January 2012 – SAI Global Limited (ASX: SAI), the world's leading partner to global organizations in Code of Conduct, compliance and ethics training, GRC solutions, and environmental, health & safety (EH&S) software, today announced that it has completed its acquisition of Compliance 360, an industry-leading software provider of enterprise governance, risk management, compliance and audit management (GRC) solutions.
Compliance and risk management are driven by both regulatory and compliance rules and an organization’s mission, values and business objectives. Businesses must adhere to government regulations such as the FCPA, Dodd-Frank Act, UK Bribery Act, Export Control laws; industry standards; and internal Code of Conduct, policies and procedures. Global organizations not only require business partners who can provide the practical guidance needed to ensure an effective program but they also depend on a pragmatic, cost-effective way to manage regulatory content, workflow, and communications with staff and third parties.
“Compliance programs maximize their effectiveness when they manage the key GRC elements of compliance and ethics training, policies, procedures, gifts and entertainment, regulatory change, assessments, surveys, audit management and third party due diligence in a single platform that allows for local control, effective workflow and central oversight,” said Andy Wyszkowski, Global Head of Compliance at SAI Global. He added, “Compliance 360 applications not only ensure compliance effectiveness but do so with the highest levels of customer satisfaction. We look forward to continuing to partner with and deliver world-class products, services and technology to organizations around the world.”
SAI Global will continue to support its learning clients from its offices in Plainsboro NJ, Waltham MA and regional offices worldwide. Steve McGraw, Compliance 360 President, will report directly to Andy Wyszkowski and manage the GRC Solutions business from Alpharetta, GA.
