Alton, UK; 29th October 2008: Sword Achiever, a leading governance, risk and compliance (GRC) solutions company, has launched its first suite of management modules for clients using IBM FileNet P8 software.

The new software suite provides clients with a single, enterprise-wide point of management across all areas of risk, compliance, and regulatory business processes. Based on open standards, the software integrates disparate risk management applications and unifies compliance policies across multiple lines of business such as Sarbanes Oxley, Life Sciences (FDA 21 CFR Part 11), Information Security (IS0 27001) ISO 9001, ISO 14001 / 18001, MiFID and more.

The Sword Achiever Suite also includes full function Policy & Controls Management addressed through document control and skills management training, leading Risk Analytics & Reporting capabilities through graphical reporting and in-depth Risk & Controls Assessment functionality.

According to Robert Dent, Business Unit Director of Sword Achiever, “The Sword Achiever Suite for IBM FileNet P8 offers a progressive approach to Governance, Risk & Compliance management by enabling enterprise-wide control over GRC policies, processes and controls via a single integrated framework, for simplified management and reduced costs. In doing so, the solution reduces headaches associated with manual tracking of data required for audits while reducing the costs associated with external auditors.

“While other solutions do little more than mirror legal requirements, the new Sword Achiever Suite for IBM FileNet P8 enables organizations to go far beyond mere compliance, serving as the catalyst for continual business improvement via the implementation of best practices. The solution is intuitive and easy to use, requiring minimal training and ensuring fast and consistent use across the enterprise. The Sword Achiever Suite for IBM FileNet P8 can be deployed quickly and can typically provide a complete return on investment in 12 to 18 months.”
