If your organization falls under a regulated industry, this app-pack may help you to manage and organize your exam requests. Regulators and auditors may regularly request information from your organization or follow up on a previous incident. They might follow up on a workers compensation complaint; investigate misleading marketing and advertising of products, fraudulent sales practices, or inappropriate underwriting practices; complete a periodic SEC or FINRA exam; or follow up on violations found in a previous exam. If not properly dealt with in a timely manner, it could result in costly penalties, fines, or even reputational consequences.
This can be a frequent orregular occurrence for your organization in which you may have to manually keep track of these requests and find yourself searching for the same information repeatedly since the information is typically owned by others within your organization not to mention the various systems in which the data may reside.Once the exam is complete, tracking the progress and completion of exam findings and remediation actions is executed using email and spreadsheets providing little visibility on findings status and progress.
