Convercent’s approach is to carefully track employees at every level of training, and note that they have seen the latest documents and other content used in the training process. When there’s trouble, the software also tracks the investigation process from beginning to end. The old way was via spreadsheets and other piecemeal products. No wonder companies shell out billions in fines every year.

Governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) is a category so unsexy that it’s been largely been ignored by the last two decades of software revolution. Fortunately, sex appeal is in no way a prerequisite for a massive market opportunity. In fact, it can often be the inverse, as the glamour of an industry attracts competition.

Know the rules and when to break them. Those are the first words one sees on the home page of GRC (Governance, Risk and Compliance) company Convercent, which may appear unconventional for a firm that helps companies deal with the challenges of aligning employee behavior with corporate culture, mitigating risk and maintaining regulatory compliance. And it is. Yet breaking convention has been the very definition of the co-founder and CEO Patrick Quinlan who sits at the helm of this innovative software-as-a-service organization.
WIRED | May 3, 2013
RJ Owen had a bad feeling about this meeting. It was a Monday afternoon, a couple weeks ago, and Owen — a product manager and design lead with Denver-based software company Convercent — had been called into a company-wide meeting with co-founder and CEO Patrick Quinlan. Quinlan began by saying that by the end of the meeting, every employee was going to have to make a choice. Owen rolled his eyes. He figured they’d all be asked to step forward and affirm their allegiance to the company mission — maybe even write their names on the wall as a way of professing their love for the job at hand. He hated that sort of thing.
Business Finance Magazine | March 26, 2013
He had me at, “We believe risk needs to be redefined – it needs to be more aligned with employee behavior.” That’s one of several points Convercent CEO Patrick Quinlan makes in the following Risk Chat. Our discussion began when I heard Quinlan mention “CGC” (culture, governance and compliance). By treating culture as an integral – even foundational – element of GRC, Quinlan explains, companies are better positioned to “get in front of the bad stuff” before it occurs as opposed to reacting to the bad stuff after the fact.

One has to start with legacy GRC systems by well known brands like SAP, IBM, SoftwareAG, MetricStream, and others. These current offerings focus on managing the negative – think claims of sexual harassment and fraud – via glorified spreadsheets and a fear-based rhetoric. Like dozens of other enterprise software verticals, the GRC solutions of yesterday fall short in today’s social, mobile, data-driven, and cloud-hosted environment.
