(PRWEB UK) 31 March 2014
Rivo Software, a global GRC and Sustainability software solutions provider has become a key strategic partner of the National Business Crime Solution (NBCS) in order to share information and trends to help prevent business crime in the UK.
The NBCS is a collaboration between the public, private and law enforcement sectors and exists to tackle nationwide business crime by analysing and investigating crime data provided from industries such as retail, transport and logistics and then directly liaising with the police to work towards obtaining convictions and preventing repeat offences.
Our software solution, Rivo Safeguard, is presently used for proactively managing security and loss prevention by clients in retail, transport and logistics and the wealth of information available makes Rivo a natural partner for the NBCS to help combat business crime across the UK. With client’s permission, Rivo will provide the NBCS with crime data and in return our clients could benefit from the trend and analysis data provided by other members of the program. This will help them make more informed decisions about deployment of security and loss prevention spend and resource.
Russell Howarth from Rivo Software said: “Rivo is really excited to enter into this agreement and the opportunities it offers to our clients to make full use of their data. This will enable them to see their data overlaid by the bigger picture of national crime trends. This way also improving police efforts with effective crime prevention by focusing efforts based on facts.”
Catherine Bowen from the National Business Crime Solution added: “The NBCS is pleased to be working with organisations such as Rivo to more effectively tackle business crime. The integration between the Rivo prime risk management solution and the NBCS database will ensure that we are gathering valuable information and intelligence in a centralised data pot from across the UK’s business community. By combining data from across the public and private sector the NBCS is able to exploit every opportunity to gather the necessary intelligence and support to more effectively detect, prevent and subsequently respond to crimes affecting the UK’s business community.”
