GRC&T is an evolving best practice for companies of all sizes which provides a more holistic assessment of their risk profile not only from a regulatory and compliance standpoint, but in a way that can deliver process and profit improvement. In a study released by the Open Compliance and Ethics Group (OCEG), 84 percent reported fragmentation of GRC activities and processes, and 65 percent claimed fragmented GRC caused serious business problems through duplication of efforts, redundant solutions, higher costs, and increased risk.
“The level of complexity of operating a business—even those not in the Global 1000-- coupled with the speed at which companies must operate, are onerous for the management of most companies,” said UHY Advisors-Texas Managing Director Norman Comstock, who leads that firm’s Technology Assurance and Advisory Services (TAAS) group. In this post-SOX era, more and more companies are looking to convert their investments in compliance into a strategic and sustainable advantage. But without an omnibus view of a company’s GRC&T, the silo approach most managers are trying to thwart within their organizations is only exacerbated.”
“The deployment of sophisticated Enterprise GRC&T software is complex and requires a unique blend of skills of software knowledge and risk management knowledge. We believe this venture will help clients maximize their effectiveness in GRC like no others currently in the market,” said Joseph Cincotta, President and CEO, of DoubleCheck. “Few, if any, companies serving the middle market can provide a range of services from Enterprise Risk Assessment, Corporate Governance, Policy Management, Internal Audit and multiple Compliance frameworks.”
As a result of this agreement, clients will now have the ability to effectively create data workflows and efficient views to such Risk and Controls Framework data within the DoubleCheck software environment. “UHY Advisors’ TAAS practice is perfectly positioned to support this requirement by blending the needed technology and GRC&T best practices methods,” added Cincotta. “They have committed significant resources to serve the needs of the market while providing a best of class GRC&T solution that seamlessly integrates business processes and DoubleCheck’s software usability effectiveness. We are proud to be part of the UHY Advisors GRC Solution Center and are pleased to make UHY Advisors professional services available to existing and prospective DoubleCheck clients.”
