LONDON, October 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Sword Achiever announced today that it has been positioned within the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Governance, Risk and Compliance Platforms.
With a strong history in operational GRC Sword Achiever are proud to announce that they have been included within Gartner's EGRC Magic Quadrant.
This Magic Quadrant for EGRC platforms presents a global view of Gartner's assessment of the main software vendors that should be considered by organisations seeking a technology solution to support the oversight and operation of enterprise wide risk management and compliance programs, with the overall objective being improvements in corporate governance and the ability to achieve business objectives.
Vendors are assessed on two criteria: Their ability and success in making their vision a market reality and their understanding of how market forces can be exploited to create value for customers and opportunity for themselves.
Over the past year Sword Achiever have worked with customers to provide a more valuable user journey, ensuring that the right information is captured by the right people at the right time and that management have the reports they require to make informed and accurate decisions.
Further developments have also been made to the AchieverPlus Audit Management solution enabling businesses to automatically set remediation based on configurable surveys and set risk based audit frequencies. Risk Management can also be used to link in with overall business objectives and KPIs to forewarn of items that may negatively impact on the business bottom line.
