policyIQ a big hit at the GAM Conference!

GAM BannerAs the IIA has been known to do, their General Audit Management (GAM) Conference was packed with many high caliber speakers again this year! Presenters provided a wide array of insights falling within five tracks:

  • Talent & Resource Strategies
  • Regulatory & Compliance Issues
  • Risk Management
  • Innovation & Technology
  • Stakeholder Relationships & Expectations

This year’s conference drew a record crowd and it seemed that the number of visitors to the RGP booth reflected that—we kept very busy talking about the things that differentiate us from other firms, such as

  • 3,000+ professionals in 70+ wholly owned offices (not affiliates) worldwide
  • Consultants have 10-20 years’ experience
  • 87 of the Fortune 100 served
  • 100% retention of top 50 clients
  • Served more than half the Fortune 1000

RGP_PartnersWe had more inquiries about policyIQ this year than at any previous conference. This was in keeping with a theme at the conference regarding leveraging technology to help audit to be more effective and more efficient. Our GAM audience seemed pleasantly surprised and asked the most follow-up questions when they realized that policyIQ can serve several Governance, Risk and Compliance needs within one tool—we do not require, cajole or have to finagle unsuspecting clients into purchasing additional tools or modules to meet their needs. Unlike other audit and GRC tool providers, we are focused on solving their problems and helping them to be more efficient—not on trying to milk them for multiple software applications and upgrades!

  • policyIQ is significantly less expensive than other tools
  • Implementation takes 4-6 weeks (not months or years)
  • Expert configuration support is included
  • Our team is known for “Excellent” service and support

There are some things that you DON’T get with policyIQ that stunned some technology shoppers, too:

  • No extra modules to buy
  • No up-front license fee
  • No upgrade fees
  • No hardware to purchase
  • No IT resources required

This summed up my experience at GAM this year:
