Make governance, risk and compliance power your business. Not hold you back.

Many businesses see governance, risk and compliance only as an overhead, called upon when something goes wrong. They let it become isolated from the rest of the company, creating an ‘us’ versus ‘them’ attitude. And that’s confusing and frustrating for everyone.

This is where Qualsys comes in.

We provide and implement software and practices that make governance, risk and compliance accessible for everyone. We do this through:

  1. Coaching champions: We provide the tools, training and support to engage your organisation with GRC. Throughout your journey, you’ll have a team behind you who will help you measure performance, achieve your goals and demonstrate value.
  2. Designing user-friendly systems: For Superusers, our software is powerful, advanced and configurable. For end users, the system is delightfully easy and intuitive.
  3. Tailoring our software and services: Governance, risk and compliance is not a one-size fits all approach. Every business has different compliance and internal quality requirements.

Eliminate guess work

Too many business decisions are based on inklings and ideas. Without a management system to document, communicate and manage change it’s impossible to effectively govern the business, control risk and expect compliance. Our software and services provides you with a disciplined approach. This ensures your business decisions are based on evidence and giving you confidence that the systematic approach is making your business more efficient, resilient and profitable.
