Challenges

Ten years ago Our business required a formal process to Risk Management. Something that would not only provide all elements of risk but that would also guide us in the process. Affordability also had to be considered and BarnOwl was the answer!

Solution

We found BarnOwl to be affordable in comparison to other solutions available on the market. A key requirement for us was that it had to integrate Risk Management with Internal Audit, which it did. BarnOwl, was also the closest solution which met the requirements of COSO and ISO 31000.

Benefits

  • There is only one standard in approaching Risk Management in the company currently. We were able to establish the potential risk exposure and better decision making when mitigating risk. “You can’t manage, if you don’t know what to manage”.
  • Risk Management in its entirety has improved the Group’s cognisance of risk management and to realise the possible consequences.
  • BarnOwl provides accurate and reliable reporting
