12th March 2008 – NETconsent, leading policy management software vendor, has today announced a deal to implement its software within Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough Council.

The Council already had written policies available on its intranet, but like many other Councils, it has recently taken the decision to communicate and manage these policies more pro-actively to be sure staff fully understand the Council’s policies. This will help to strengthen compliance with regulatory standards and improve service quality.

By using NETconsent software, the Council will be able to distribute relevant workplace policies to each employee and prove they have received and agreed to abide by those policies. An additional feature that allows employees’ comprehension to be tested, will enable managers to quickly identify and address any lack of understanding, thereby immediately improving actual working practices.

Leigh Gripton, Service Director (Customer Care & ICT) for the Council stated “Whilst the Council has the specialist knowledge required to develop policy documentation and best-practice guidance, proving compliance (i.e. chase and report policy acceptance) without automation is becoming increasingly onerous and has the potential to detract departmental efforts from service delivery. Reducing the administrative burden associated with managing policies will free service managers to focus their energies and resources on tackling priority front-line services. The Council engaged with NETconsent in order to provide us with a more innovative way to deliver our ICT policies, in the first instance, to our users with the important consent part of that process being more effectively managed and monitored.”

Dominic Saunders, Operations Director at NETconsent pointed out, “Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough Council is the latest Council to recognise the significant contribution NETconsent policy management software can make to its governance and compliance strategy.”
