4th Annual GRC Innovation Awards Program Recognises Innovations in Governance, Risk Management & Compliance Solutions
SOFTWARE developer Ideagen plc’s cloud-based Gael Enlighten product has been recognised for its “technical innovation” by a leading industry analyst in its annual awards list.
GRC 20/20, analysts of global governance, risk management and compliance solutions and strategies, named Gael Enlighten as the most innovative product in its Environmental Health & Safety category. Judges were impressed with Enlighten’s scalability, user experience, analytics and mobile capability.
Michael Rasmussen, GRC Pundit at GRC 20/20 and internationally recognised expert, awarded Gael Enlighten with the 2015 GRC Innovation Award for Environmental Health & Safety. He said: “Ideagen’s Gael Enlighten has demonstrated GRC innovation in Environmental Health & Safety that delivers complete control, visibility and real time reporting across every aspect and detail of operational risks in an organisation.
“It is imperative that we recognise today’s successes as a milestone toward advancing GRC maturity. In achieving maturity, GRC is part of the organisation’s strategy and operations and supported by a range of technology, knowledge and services – enabling the organisation to achieve greater efficiency, effectiveness, and agility in GRC processes and broader business operations.”
David Hornsby, Chief Executive Officer of Ideagen, said: “This is an outstanding award and one that is testament to the hard work and effort that has gone in to the research and development of the Gael Enlighten product.
“We believe that Enlighten is the most powerful, innovative and user friendly GRC product on the market and we are delighted that the capabilities of the product have been recognised by such a respected group of analysts in GRC 20/20.”
The GRC 20/20 Awards recognise the leading GRC software products on the market. With 17 categories of GRC, each award is split into two primary categories; technical innovation and user experience. Enlighten was successful in the Technical Innovation category of the EH&S domain.
Described by Ideagen as a “risk-based, ultra-modern GRC software product”, Enlighten’s users include a number of established organisations such as Virgin, Haeco Group and Poundland.
The GRC 20/20 Awards recognised the product for;
- Solid SaaS architecture
- Integration of a range of capabilities for EH&S and beyond
- Overall user experience, intuitiveness, and ease of use
- Presentation of information and analytics providing 360 contextual awareness of what is happening
- Full scalability from small to large enterprise
- Mobility in tablets & smartphones
- Application & information/data architecture that brings all of this together to link data points that can then become intelligence
Ross McLarnon, Ideagen’s Product Manager for Enlighten, added: “Our strategy is built around delivering a world leading GRC solution; so high performance, scalability, usability and mobility are at the forefront of everything we do. The Technical Innovation award is a fantastic achievement for Enlighten and very much reinforces our vision to be a market leader in the GRC domain.”
