  • about us

    smart instead of big

    Any compliance professional needs tools and systems in order to be effective. Looking at the market for grc applications you will quickly get an impression that the market is dominated by BIG solutions for BIG companies and BIG money. This is what we wanted to change when we launched grctools. Simply because legal requirements do not make a distinction by size of company. In a multi-stakeholder approach with NGO's, public and private organiaztions we identified basic needs in terms of tool support for smaller and medium sized companies. This led to a catalogue of applications that serve all basic needs of a compliance professional. ispeakup and bpcheck are the first available (and smart) products from this catalogue.

    compliance checks on third parties

    Many laws have extended the criminal liability of company officers for bribery and other unlawful acts committed by "associated parties", like agents, distributors and other intermediaries. In order to seek shelter from legal risks and prosecution companies must prove that they have a diligent and systematic process of checks for new business partners in place.

  • About ispeakup

    A safe and affordable approach to whistleblowing

    Safe

    The most important commitment we have is to the security of your data. This commitment touches every part of our infrastructure, our product, and our corporate policies. All data is encrypted, both on our servers as well as in transit. Whistelblower enjoy full protection of their identity, if they want to remain anonymous.

    Affordable

    ispeak up is a pure web service. Our experience is that outside of North America less than 10% of compliance reports are made via phone, whereas 80% of the cost for operating a whistleblower system stems from providing phone access including all related services (i.e. translation). This saves a lot of money for the operation of the service from a customer point of view and gives us the means to invest in our safe and super reliable cloud service.

    smart

    ispeakup is built on the expertise of compliance profeesionals that have served many years in compliance roles of multinational companies. It has been designed to make compliance reporting for employees an easy and safe experience. At the same time ispeakup captures the requirements from the company perspective and gives inernal case managers and investigators a smart tool to document and manage reports.
