Using the Framework, Archer clients have built more than 700 applications to automate supporting GRC processes, including those shown to the right.

Tailoring Archer Solutions

Archer recognizes that no two businesses are alike.

To address your needs for pointand-click configuration, the Archer SmartSuite Framework delivers a rich feature set that allows business users to tailor Archers solutions according to your established processes and naming conventionswith no custom code.

GRC Reporting

Archers powerful reporting capabilities give you a comprehensive view of your GRC program, allowing you to correlate and normalize risks and empower informed business decisions. You can take advantage of Archers pre-built reports and dashboards to monitor activities and trends, and you can generate ad hoc reports to quickly access the information you need to address issues and complete tasks. Archer reports and dashboards are tailored by audience so users get exactly the information they need depending on their roles and responsibilities.
