ACL, the technology company that is transforming audit and risk, today announced that its flagship audit, risk and compliance management software system ACL™ GRC has been listed as a representative vendor in recent market guide reports from leading technology analyst firm Gartner. The 2015 Market Guide for Audit Management Solutions and 2015 Market Guide for Corporate Compliance and Oversight Software feature an analysis of the major players in these GRC-related software categories.
“Compliance professionals have seen their roles become ever more visible, more challenging and more important within their organizations over the last five to 10 years, as the global legal and regulatory landscape continues to become more complex,” Gartner states in the report1. This changing role has only increased the need for sophisticated compliance software.
ACL offers a cloud-based audit, risk and compliance management solution that is frequently cited for its ease of use, low IT infrastructure requirements and extremely high rates of customer satisfaction. A recent survey of audit and compliance leaders at current ACL GRC customers found that more than 80% found the product “easy or very easy” to learn and over half stated that using ACL GRC led to an immediate improvement in how their team is perceived by senior management. One hundred percent of customers reported that they have been able to broaden the scope of their team’s work with the help of ACL GRC.
“We believe being listed as a representative vendor in not one but two of Gartner’s defined GRC use cases is great validation our data-driven approach to GRC and our true, cloud-based multi-tenant deployment strategy,” said Dan Zitting, Vice President of Product Management and Design at ACL. “Whether you lead a compliance or audit team, the value of assessing risk, analyzing actual transactional data and easily surfacing true risk to corporate performance cannot be overstated. It resonates with senior leadership and that’s what makes GRC professionals sought after.”
