Noted for having an extremely diverse and happy customer base.

SAI Global, a leading provider of solutions that help organizations manage risk, protect reputation and optimize performance in an increasingly complex ethical and regulatory environment, has been recognized by independent analyst firm, Forrester Research Inc., as a Leader in TheForrester Wave™ : Governance, Risk and Compliance Platforms, Q1 2016  report.

The Forrester Wave™: Governance, Risk and Compliance Platforms, Q1 2016 is one of the industry's most thorough and detailed analyses, based on briefings, demonstrations, customer surveys, interviews and analyst access to demo environments of each vendor's product. Vendors are rated on 30 criteria that cover current offering, strategy and market presence.

SAI Global was evaluated for its Compliance 360 Platform, a comprehensive software solution that streamlines governance, risk, compliance and internal audit processes for clients across the Healthcare, Life Science, Financial Services, Manufacturing, Automotive and Retail, Agri-Food industries.

The report says that: “SAI Global has an extremely diverse, extremely happy customer base”.

The  report noted, SAI Global is among vendors that have a “solid value proposition and philosophy of GRC success that make them an overall strong pick.”

Peter Mullins, SAI Global Chief Executive Officer said: 

I believe that our recognition as a ‘Leader’ in this analysis validates our strategy and investment. The result we are most proud of is our customer references score, which is among the highest in the report, together with the commentary which cites our extremely happy customer base.

Mullins noted that strong, responsive and honest relationships between clients and providers are the cornerstone of successful GRC platform implementations and evolution. “I believe this result is a testament to the relationships we build as well as our technology, and we would like to thank our customers for enabling us to get continually better in what we do”, he said.

Elisabeth Gehringer, Chief Ethics & Compliance Officer, Realogy Holdings Corp. said: ”Our implementation of Compliance 360 has supported our keen focus on ethics and risk management. It's been integral to managing supply chain risk at our subsidiary Cartus, and ensuring that our clients are working with compliant vendors. The capabilities provide us with a number of business benefits which we continue to expand upon, and the SAI Global team is responsive and knowledgeable.”

According to Forrester's TechRadar™: Risk Management, Q4 2015 , a separate report analyzing GRC technology trends, GRC platforms are poised to act as the central hub to all risk data and that they are well positioned to add more value if they can become platform of choice to aggregate risk data.”

Jan Kruger, Head of Risk, SAI Global, noted:  “Constant regulatory change, new and emerging risks, and ongoing business transformation means companies need scalable, flexible platforms that deliver immediate business value and protection,and  also adapt and grow with them. This corresponds well with our own offering of service-based software solutions that enhance compliance, integrate the various components of compliance and risk programs, and allow organizations to scale at their own pace with minimal overhead. It is my view that we received the highest of all strategy scores in the report in reflection of this.”
