MetricStream Launches GRC Consulting and Advisory Services

MetricStream, Inc., the market leader in enterprise-wide Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) solutions, has created the MetricStream GRC & Consulting Advisory Services Group to help companies meet the increasingly complex demands of risk and compliance management. The group enables companies to develop a consistent GRC framework and confidently manage risks and compliance, while maximizing operational efficiency and performance.

The portal has over 1 million users, receives over 20,000 visitors a week and has facilitated training programs and content services for over 3,000 companies. Based on its tremendous success and the increasing need for direct consulting services, MetricStream created the GRC & Consulting Advisory Services Group. With its help, companies can meet their unique GRC needs through the implementation of best practices, GRC process review and optimization and GRC policy definitions.

MetricStream provides a combination of consulting services (such as policies, procedures and best practices) with the implementation of GRC technology solutions. Using this approach, customers can enjoy the benefits of a tightly integrated, sustainable and consistent GRC framework.

Joe Longo, Vice President of Consulting at MetricStream says, “The key benefit of MetricStream’s consulting and advisory service is its ability to leverage a vast pool of GRC experts associated with MetricStream as part of the ComplianceOnline community. It enables companies with even the most specialized or unique GRC needs find the expertise to address those needs.” MetricStream is harnessing this cloud of experts and consultants through its consulting and advisory service.

“We have nurtured a large community of experts and partners over the past years and created a variety of channels for dissemination and exchange of information through online training, alerts, vertical search, discussion forums, and best practices content services,” says Priyabrata Sahoo, Associate Director MetricStream and Head of ComplianceOnline. “Through our consulting and advisory services, enterprise customers can now draw on this immense resource for their specific business needs.”

Shellye Archambeau, CEO at MetricStream, adds, “GRC adoption requires an integrated and holistic approach. Companies need assistance in developing their GRC program rapidly and effectively while achieving the goals of this integrated model. MetricStream's consulting services group addresses this need by providing a single source for GRC expertise, content and technology. With its help, companies can develop a sound strategy to enhance corporate governance and proactively manage risks and compliance.”
