KCM GRC Platform

KnowBe4 KCM GRC Platform is well suited for a company that knows what they're doing compliance wise and needs to save time doing it. It won't be something you can spend a few hours on and then put on autopilot. It was made to create a rhythm within your own team, and you'll need to have the buy-in. It's useful for IT and Legal teams that already have a vendor risk management process, but want to have a better handle on it. Giving an outside auditor read-only access to a scope is also a huge time saver.

Thomson Reuters Accelus

Thomson Reuters Accelus is very well suited to allow us to manage our equity exposure across both geographies and sectors and view/modify these reports on both a real-time and historical basis. On the fixed income side it is a more cumbersome solution and does not allow the same ease of update and modifications it affords in the equity asset class.

Pros

  • Great firm-wide risk profile.
  • Ease of multi asset risk assessment.
  • Easy compliance/regulatory integration.

Cons

KCM GRC Platform

  • Vendor management has a few kinks to work out. We want to be able to do internal questionnaires for vendors as a compliance checklist before we sign off on a contract. Nothing in the works yet, but there are a few workarounds.
  • The navigation between different tasks in scope is clunky, and it's easy to lose your place, and it forces you back to the main page of the scope to retrace your steps.

Thomson Reuters Accelus

  • Speed of updating system with new assets.
  • Lacks detail in fixed income.

Support from KnowBe4 KCM GRC Platform is always great. It's always in-house localized support, with excellent response times, and dedicated Customer Success Managers to answer the bulk of your questions or take your suggestions and make them a feature request. They will also reach out at least quarterly and do health checks to make sure you're using the platform to the best of your ability.

Thomson Reuters provides excellent customer service across products - this product is no exception. Whenever we have had any sort of issue or question they are very quick to respond and provide useful answers and insight. We have not had any sort of major issue that they were unable to address in a timely and appropriate manner.

Alternatives Considered

KCM GRC Platform

Quantivate and Fusion were the other two options we checked out. The quantity was high, and a good bit more expensive, but it was the best performing with its platform. They also had more modules that each cost extra to add to your subscription. KnowBe4 KCM GRC Platform was all-in-one and a little less mature, but the better buy. Fusion was hard to follow in the demo, and I was not overly impressed. I may have made my decision early enough in the demo to not pay much more attention to it.

Thomson Reuters product offers a much more compelling value proposition than the Eze Suite for us for a few reasons. First, the upfront and installation costs are much less. And secondly, the platform integrates much more seamlessly with our compliance and regulatory systems without as much ongoing maintenance and coding issues.

Return on Investment

KCM GRC Platform

  • Just having the capacity to do things the right way, and formally, has driven some of our compliance efforts.
  • Due to licensing limitations, we likely overspent on seats to the platform that we didn't need but also didn't want to miss out on.

Thomson Reuters Accelus

  • More cost-effective solution than the competition.
  • Manageable upfront/initial integration and installation costs.
