Why choose ACL?

Embed ready-to-use banking-specific regulatory updates, frameworks, standards, metrics and best practices into your daily management workflow.

Banking content suite

Rely on ACL’s Content & Intelligence suites for banking and lending-specific regulatory updates, frameworks, standards, metrics, and best practices. The COBIT 5.0 Framework and the COSO 2013 Internal Control Integrated Framework are included automatically.

We’ve invested-in and developed banking-specific toolkits to help you manage and stay current on the latest regulations and standards. Find them pre-loaded in your content library, which is researched and curated by ACL teams to ensure you’re always up to date. These include:

  • Consumer Financial Protection (including FCRA, UDAAP, GLBA)
  • BSA / AML / ATF
  • FDIC Compliance
  • Banking Operational Risk
  • Electronic Funds Transfer (ACH analytics)
  • and countless others.

Collaborative risk workshops

Remove subjectivity and isolation from risk assessment. ACL’s Risk Workshops are a collaborative online forum where people from different departments can discuss and score risks.

The scores are then automatically calculated into a single risk assessment. Now your entire organization is speaking one common risk language and working off one single framework.

Initiate a risk assessment in line with strategic objectives, configure risk scoring, invite participants, view real-time responses and votes, and apply this to the Risk Profile.

Map industry standards, internal policies, and regulations to your control framework to quickly visualize coverage and track regulatory changes—managing your risk exposure and reducing operational burden.

Compliance management

Stay on top of changing regulatory requirements and expectations. Improve the effectiveness of your compliance teams and reduce the overall daily burden on already strained resources.

Integrate and deploy standards, directives, and regulations automatically from the content suite designed for banks and credit unions. Now you can provide executives, the board, and regulators with a simple, easy-to-understand, comprehensive view of the bank’s compliance posture.

Audit management

Strategic assurance shouldn’t be managed in spreadsheets. We help you avoid spreadsheet headaches with gear to elevate you from painful manual tracking and collating.

We do the legwork aggregating your data so you can provide the front line and executives with better insight, and be that trusted business advisor by spending time and resources on higher-value activities. The ACL platform will chase down PBC requests, management responses, and remediation efforts across the business. We offer the most comprehensive reporting in the industry: storyboards, drillable reports, one-click PDFs, and Tableau integration capabilities.
