Flexible, Powerful Automation Makes Risk and Compliance Programs More Effective and Efficient
CONCORD, MASS. – June 27, 2019 – ProcessUnity, a leading provider of cloud-based applications for risk and compliance management, today launched the latest version of its Risk and Compliance platform. The new release extends ProcessUnity’s unparalleled configurability and flexibility while adding intelligent capabilities to make users more effective and efficient.
“No two risk and compliance programs are the same, every organization runs their program their way, and every program changes over time,” said Rich Gottesman, Vice President of Product Management, ProcessUnity. “That’s why each ProcessUnity platform release introduces more configurability options to support the ever-changing regulatory landscape that includes GDPR, APRA, CCPA, OCC, EBA, NYDFS and the SEC.”
ProcessUnity’s new platform release includes nearly 100 new features and enhancements specific to automation and workflow, end-user productivity and system administration. Highlights include:
- Enhanced Automation and Workflow reduces cycle times for risk functions to support business requests through more targeted automated actions. Workflow capabilities give organizations the ability to quickly and easily adjust processes with fewer clicks. New features specific to custom buttons allow companies to create pop-up forms, dynamic confirmation messages, drop-down menus and more. Intelligent Actions execute workflow steps and criteria automatically based on decision flows and customer-defined events.
- Increased End-User Productivity capabilities provide status transparency within workflow requests, enabling users to quickly and easily complete their risk and compliance tasks. A new end-user inbox adds a configurable dashboard panel, automated clean-up and enhanced search and filtering. Reporting enhancements include additional geographic maps, report instructions/descriptions and the ability to transpose rows to columns for comparison-style reporting.
- Streamlined Administration reduces the total cost of ownership for Third-Party Risk Management, Cybersecurity, end-to-end Supplier Management and Integrated Risk Management programs. Administration updates help companies accelerate system changes, and bulk property updates allow changes to multiple system fields at the same time without IT involvement. The updated business rules engine also adds search and filtering capabilities to quickly find properties, columns, functions and operators when creating calculated fields.
“The goal is to allow our customers to make adjustments to their programs without having to call IT or reimplement their programs through expensive upgrade projects like other legacy technologies require. We’re giving them more features, functions, and flexibility to evolve their ProcessUnity implementation themselves as regulations change and their program matures,” added Gottesman.
