What do you like best?
CAMMS Risk has saved us hours of work managing risk across 16 different business areas managed by a local council. We used to have Spreadsheets everywhere, but now all our risks are in one place providing assurance that they are clearly owned and being managed properly. Reports are produced at the touch of a button, which not only makes corporate reporting easier, but has meant they risks can be reviewed by the teams on a more regular basis. The real strength of CAMMS RIsk is the integration between the CAMMS project management, Strategy and Risk products. This makes them stand out in the market at the moment.
What do you dislike?
One of the strengths of CAMMS is that they listen to our feedback and adapt very quickly. I can list functionality in CAMMS Risk that I think could be improved, but I know they have already listened and the changes are in the pipeline.
Recommendations to others considering the product
I am happy to recommend this product. It is good as a stand alone product, but one of the best on the market when combined with CAMMS Strategy and CAMMS Project.
What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
In the past this was a failing council and was re-built with solid governance at the core of our business. Since that time we have had a strong emphasis on risk management and we have worked very closely with our internal and external auditors. CAMMS Risk has supported this perfectly, streamlining the processes and making cashable savings. We also use CAMMS Risk to manage our internal and external audit recommendations and support our Audit Committee to make sure everything is clearly owned and action is taken. All the CAMMS products cut down the time you spend collecting information, so that you can use that time to improve the quality of information and more importantly, plan what you are going to do about it,
