Always know where you stand when it comes to your institution’s compliance. Whether it’s FERPA or the latest on Uniform Guidance, we make it easy to stay on top of, simplify, and automate your compliance activities.

Automated controls monitoring

Automate your controls monitoring to gain valuable insights into your operating expenses and easily monitor P2P procurement, payroll monitoring, PCards, spend risk management, and more. Enable your management with timely insights to help them make informed decisions and course corrections.

Procurement oversight

Procurement oversight

Keep an inventory of your vendors, contracts, policies and risks. Run analytics against performance to get a handle on vendor performance and protect your institution against fraud, waste, and abuse.

Whistleblower hotlines

Build an anonymous web hotline where employees, students, contractors, and vendors can safely report suspicious behavior—and automatically escalate, assign and notify.

Enterprise and operational risk management

Enterprise and operational risk management

Managing your risks across your organization should not be a once-a-year activity, with results buried in spreadsheets. Unify your risk management activities with your strategic objectives and easily monitor and communicate risks year-round.
