Risk management software recognised for technology excellence and customer impact

Following a detailed analysis of the global GRC software market, Quadrant Knowledge Solutions – a global advisory and consulting firm focused on helping clients in achieving business transformation goals with strategic business and growth advisory services – has named Sword GRC a ‘Technology Leader’ in its SPARK Matrix™: GRC Platforms 2021 report.

We received strong overall ratings for our world-class suite of ERM solutions based on our commitment to technological innovation and ability to understand and address the diverse risk, governance, and compliance challenges of our customers with proven solutions that drive time-to-value. Across the performance parameters of technology excellence and customer impact, we ranked highly for our ‘comprehensive technology platform with a wide range of modular solutions and strong GRC functionalities to help organizations improve the efficiency and effectiveness of their risk and compliance management processes.’

What were the evaluation criteria?

Technology Excellence

To make the ‘Technology Leader’ grade, we were assessed on the sophistication of our technology, including the ability to provide comprehensive functional capabilities and product features, technology innovations, and product/platform architecture. Application diversity – the ability to demonstrate product deployment for a range of industry verticals and/or multiple use cases – was also a factor, as was the ability to demonstrate enterprise-grade scalability for customers.  Integration and interoperability were analysed, and planned enhancements to offer superior products/technology and improve the customer ownership experience were also evaluated.

Customer Impact

Sword GRC excelled across product availability, price to performance ratio, and go-to-market strategy. The ability to provide superior deployment experience to clients supporting flexible deployment or demonstrate superior purchase, implementation, and user experience was important, together with customer service excellence, and a range of professional services from consulting, training, and support.

Kudos to the Sword GRC team
