Automated compliance management made simple

Last Updated 2022/04/12

Staying compliant with compulsory regulation is a necessary part of running a business. Non-compliance can be punished with severe fines and penalties, so it is essential to keep up-to-date and understand what is expected and the most efficient way of achieving that.

There are a number of reasons businesses might be regulated, including measures introduced to reduce or eliminate the following:

  • Environmental damage
  • Risk of illness or danger to staff, customers,and the general public
  • Poor auditing and accounting standards, incomplete company records
  • Corruption or bribery in business dealings
  • Poor quality goods or services that do not meet the standard expected

Compliance management is the process that ensures your organisation is staying on the right side of the law across the board, made up of the steps taken to monitor and enforce compliance. Managing compliance involves setting up procedures and controls within a company, as well as the documentation and benchmarks overseen by managers.

The adoption of business process management software can help with this effort significantly. You can record data in real time, documentation can be created automatically from existing records, and alerts can be set to enforce benchmarks. All of these things give employees a clear framework to meet regulatory standards consistently.

SwiftCase provides these tools and more. As well as helping you to run an efficient, streamlined business, our cloud-based based platform is ideal for industries where regulatory compliance is a legal and ethical necessity.

Examples of SwiftCase assisting compliance management:

Medical rehabilitation

Managers can use SwiftCase to set reminders to collect patient consent. Legally, they need to renew this permission within a given timeframe. So, if it has not been renewed within that limit, the case can no longer proceed until it is given and recorded.

Construction/maintenance

Businesses in this sector need to carry out health and safety checks, such as those involved with working at height. Documentation can be completed by employees out on the job, and instantly reviewed by management at head office. If satisfied, then work can proceed. This saves the time and effort involved in having the managers travel out to the site itself.

Financial

Workers in the financial industry can ensure they have collected all of the necessary legally-required information on documents, for example, Letters of Authority. Automatic emails can be generated, listing any missing information, and sent back to the staff member responsible, which must be included before the case can proceed.

There are times when staying compliant becomes more complex and challenging, such as when your business is growing, expanding the range of services it provides, or when new government legislation has just been introduced. SwiftCase’s flexibility means that it can adapt to your requirements, ensuring you avoid fines and penalties that could significantly hurt your bottom-line or harm caused by unregulated business practices.
