QUMAS Compliance Platform on SharePoint 2010 receives GRC Technology Innovation Award from leading advisory firm

Cork, Ireland – February 9, 2012 - Today QUMAS, announced that its ComplianceSP platform, which leverages Microsoft SharePoint 2010, received a GRC Technology Innovation Award from Corporate Integrity, a leading GRC strategy advisory firm.

The GRC Technology Innovation Award recognizes new and innovative technologies that transform the way that companies manage governance, risk, and compliance. Corporate Integrity received dozens of nominations for the awards, but only selected ten recipients.

QUMAS ComplianceSP on SharePoint 2010 combines the power of Microsoft SharePoint 2010 with the proven regulatory domain expertise of QUMAS. It integrates seamlessly with the wider Microsoft environment, including Office, Outlook, Silverlight, and other elements of the Microsoft technology stack. Coupled with preconfigured solutions for managing documents, processes, people and tasks, ComplianceSP on SharePoint 2010 delivers an innovative solution that can manage a wide range of compliance activities on the latest technologies. Also QUMAS ComplianceSP is fully web-based, ensuring anytime/anywhere access to critical compliance activities, all secured by role and permission based access.

"I have commented in the past that Microsoft has become the dominant GRC solution provider due to the wide spread use of Excel, Word, Exchange, and SharePoint," said Michael Rasmussen, founder of Corporate Integrity. "These technologies lack the built-in compliance capabilities that are crucial for a sound GRC solution. QUMAS changes the compliance game. With ComplianceSP, QUMAS makes compliance work in SharePoint environments overcoming the limitations and overhead needed to implement SharePoint correctly for GRC purposes."

"ComplianceSP was architected and designed to seamlessly extend and integrate with the SharePoint 2010 platform," said Kevin O'Leary, CEO for QUMAS. "A principle design goal was to make sure that ComplianceSP could be used on an enterprise wide level and require very minimal or zero end user training."
