You’re solving the key problem. The key problem for us that we see is not necessarily the customer doesn’t have it (the policies, procedures, processes etc.). It is just that they don’t have easy access to it.
Running audits is a detail-intensive process, and requires the auditor to follow a standardised process in order to ensure that their findings are accurate and consistent across customers.
One of the biggest problems can simply be not having key people available, or having documentation stored in different locations.
Auditors need to have a good tool available to help resolve these problems, and ensure that they don’t have to waste time trying to find key information.
Whilst auditing, a huge problem can simply be that the ISMS (or relevant compliance management system) was not designed with auditors in mind. This can lead to huge amounts of wasted time in auditors having to ask for help finding policies, or needing to involve multiple people in order to clarify simple questions.
Effective compliance management software is designed to resolve these issues, and ensure that businesses get the maximum benefit from their external audits by ensuring auditors have full access to the information they need, and can self-serve.
Simon has extensive experience with various audit and compliance tools, but has found most miss the mark in terms of reducing headaches for auditors and compliance managers.
Simon has now performed multiple audits using Inverifi, and the benefits it provides have been clear.
The software has a user-friendly interface, making it easy for Simon to navigate and find what he needs quickly. The search function is particularly useful, as it helps Simon find the specific information he needs without having to waste time sifting through irrelevant documents or pulling people onto video calls.
Inverifi has now helped Simon to save huge amounts of time in audits, reducing headaches and ensuring that he is able to focus on the important parts of his role.
With accuracy and quality at the top of Simon’s priority list, it makes a huge difference that Inverifi is able to ensure customers are building their compliance from the ground up in a manageable and logical way.
