ITC’s legacy compliance management system relied on manual processes, including paper-based record-keeping and manual audits. This involved manually tracking compliance requirements, manually maintaining records, and conducting manual audits to ensure compliance with regulations. The system was prone to errors and inconsistencies and required a significant amount of maintenance and upgrades, leading to higher costs over time. Moreover, their existing system was not able to handle large amounts of data or support a growing number of users, making it difficult to scale compliance management efforts. It did not integrate well with other systems, making it difficult to share data and collaborate with other teams. Another drawback was the lack of automation capabilities, making it difficult to track and manage compliance activities, leading to the risk of errors and missed deadlines and hence additional management overhead to avoid this. It also lacked the ability to generate detailed reports, making it difficult to track compliance progress and identify areas for improvement.
ITC approached TEKenable with the need for a solution that can help them manage and maintain compliance with various regulations and industry standards. They needed a solution which could ensure data security and privacy, meet audit and reporting requirements, and maintain compliance with laws and regulations such as GDPR. They were facing challenges in managing compliance, such as manual processes, lack of visibility into compliance status, or difficulty in keeping up with changing regulations. They needed a solution which helped them easily track and document compliance efforts and demonstrate compliance to auditors and regulators.
TEKenable provided ITC with a compliance management tool which plugs into the Dynamics 365 Customer Service baseline solution and serves as a process workflow, documentation and repository for the execution and tracking of compliance management. This tool provides real-time monitoring and reporting capabilities that keep ITC informed of any potential compliance issues. Moreover, it provides automated workflow and documentation management, making it easy to stay on top of compliance tasks and ensure that all necessary documentation is readily available.
