Simple and effective risk management
It’s easy to create a spreadsheet for risks, but treating and demonstrating effective control of them over time is much harder, especially across multiple standards. But this job needs to be done for audit and business success.
opexo has a simple effective approach for adding and managing risks, including the ability to link up your risk treatment within the broader management system. Set reminders and do reviews in seconds, then see change over time to show your treatment is paying off.
Performance evaluation and making better decisions
You’ll need to do performance evaluation and demonstrate the ‘so what’ from your decision making. Inability to evidence internal audits, management reviews and monitoring of business objectives is a popular area of external audit non-conformance. It’s also a common reason why organisations fail to grow.
opexo offers prebuilt workspaces for demonstrating delivery of internal audits and management reviews, showing leadership involved in implementation through the whole life of the management system. It includes automated statistics and reporting on progress from work on the platform, including simple yet practical KPIs when needed.
Planning, tracking and operation
ISO expects organisations to have systems for planning, tracking and operation. You probably already have specialist systems for your core operations. In addition to the prebuilt opexo for your overall management system work, the underlying features can also be used for other related planning, tracking and operational work. You can build your own repeatable frameworks, track environments, groups etc in seconds. For example:
- Want a new product ideas roadmap tracker? Easy!
- Need a way to show you are on top of subject access requests to meet GDPR compliance? No problem!
- Looking to move office or run a new event and lack practical project management tools to help you deliver on the plan? Got it!
- Need a private safe space to store documents and collaborate with others outside of internal systems? It’s there!
- Following more ISO standards, evidencing regulations compliance, or other certifications e.g. Cyber Essentials? No problem!
These and many more jobs are all doable in opexo now by you at no additional cost to your core subscription. You can ‘sweat the opexo asset’ for related work you want to get done*. You might even save more money and close down other applications that are no longer needed when you have the opexo habit.
*Assumes reasonable use and additional user licence subscriptions if needed. We also offer low cost bolt-on additional frameworks, tools, and track workspaces if you dont want to build your own.
Do you also need to manage your supply chain?
Supplier management is crucial for business success today. It’s also very important for ISO 9001, 45001 and 27001.
Managing relationships including contracts, contacts and other activity is not easy with basic documents, sheets and folders, meaning information is all over the place and hard to find when you need it most (not least for satisfying an auditor or powerful customer). With GDPR heightening the consequences of poor supplier or customer management, it’s an area well worth getting more control over.
Specialist supply chain software is also really expensive, so our relationship Accounts suite is available at a small extra cost. It plugs straight into the broader management system functionality of opexo.
You can also add in customers, suppliers and partners to work with you securely in one place, making it easy for everyone, just for the marginal cost of any extra user licence/s.
