Forrester concludes “Usability will be critical to the tool's adoption.
Alpharetta, GA (PRWEB) November 12, 2014
SAI Global Compliance, a leading provider of governance, risk and compliance (GRC) products, services and technology, today announced a next-generation user interface that extends its leadership and innovation in creating business management software suites in the cloud. The latest version of the cloud-based Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) Compliance 360 solution makes it easier than ever before to interact with information and allows users to enjoy a more intuitive and visually engaging work interaction with significant focus on improving the overall user experience.
According to industry surveys, usability has become the top criterion in the decision of which GRC solution to buy. This also impacts the adoption rate of GRC applications and long-term use of the product. In an April 2014 Forrester Research, Inc. Report on GRC Tools, “Choose The Right Technologies To Support Your GRC Program”, Forrester concludes “Usability will be critical to the tool's adoption. Slow adoption of a new tool could collapse your entire GRC initiative.” The focus on user experience and usability were key guiding principles in the design of the new release of Compliance 360.
With the new, intuitive menu navigation in Compliance 360, users will use fewer clicks and follow a simpler, more direct route to access desired information. Other key enhancements include modernized data entry forms, updated icon images, and significantly more flexible data filtering capability.
In addition to the overall improvements to the user interface, a new Compliance 360 Portal has been released. The portal provides users easy access to important information needed to accomplish various tasks. Initially, the Compliance 360 Portal is focused on views of Policy information, providing quick and easy access to published policies and procedures for employees and others, in an appealing format. The portal features a quick keyword search as well as a library view of all published policies. Additionally, the “Most Recently Updated” and “Most Frequently Viewed” policies are displayed in dynamics lists.
At SAI Global, we take pride in building effective and efficient compliance solutions that deliver true business value to our customers”, said Jan Kruger, Executive Vice President, SAI Global Compliance. “Our expectation is that every solution is highly usable, and that it demonstrably contributes to the effectiveness of each customer’s compliance program. Our clients have had direct input throughout the development of this new version, and their feedback has been instrumental in creating the much improved user experience and efficiency gains.”
