Mobile Texting (SMS)
SMS intake doesn’t just increase accessibility, it also streamlines follow-up for reporters. After submitting their story, reporters receive a case number, which they can use to log in and see the progress of the investigation.

Manage, Investigate, and Close Cases 48% Faster then Industry Average
Ethics & Compliance teams close cases in an average of 23 days when using the Convercent Case Manager.
Truly Centralized Case Management Software
Convercent’s Case Management system is built so that users who access the system, no matter how frequently or infrequently, will experience little friction and have a clear understanding how to best utilize it.
By centralizing all aspects of a reported case, this system will bring the highest levels of optimization, efficiency, and collaboration to your ethics and compliance team.
Communication Builds Confidence
When someone takes the time to put in a case and there is a failure to follow up, it can seem like the reporter went unseen or unheard, which is the last thing your department and your organization wants for its employees.
With Convercent’s “opt-in email alerts” reporters, whether they choose to submit anonymously or not, are notified when an investigator has started the process. Additionally, individuals within your investigations or compliance teams will have access to our built-in compliance hotline messaging tool, allowing direct communication with the reporting party.
Compliance is a Multi-Department Effort
A common misconception is that compliance users handle the entire intake and case management system all on their own; however, best practice is to engage other departments like HR, ultimately increasing user adoption and driving broadened data and analytics capabilities.
With Convercent Case Manager, customers can add as many Admin Users as an organization demands, at no charge. Custom permissions allows the Admin with “the keys to the castle” to restrict access for certain Admin Users to ensure access to sensitive information outside their responsibility is blocked.
One Report, Multiple Allegations
Compliance incident reports are rarely simple and straightforward—they often involve multiple parties and multiple types of allegations. With Convercent, understanding the nuances and complexity of many incident reports has now become easy.
We have made the intentional decision to allow for unlimited multiple allegations to be attached to one case. Each allegation can be managed to closure by tracking substantiation, action taken and key findings involving a variety of involved parties, including subject, witnesses and reporting parties.
Streamline Investigations with Open Tasks
When organizations have multiple people monitoring and investigating a case, investigations can become disorganized and even chaotic. Streamline the process with Convercent’s Case Manager, by assigning specific tasks to each investigator and then tracking the progress of each task.
Tasks can also help you build a more robust retaliation monitoring program. Set a task for 90-120 days in the future that requires investigators to check in with the reporter and see if they have experienced any retaliation.
Standardize Your Compliance Hotline Data & Reporting
Convercent’s Helpline and Case Management tool is packaged with a number of basic out-of-the-box reports that will help you consistently report to your peers around key compliance hotline metrics.
These reports include:
- Cases By Anonymity
- Cases By Department
- Cases By Location
- Cases By Intake Method
Use Data to Move Compliance from Reactive, to more Predictive and Prescriptive
By combining your compliance hotline with our Insights analytics tool, you will unlock actionable insights into your ethics & compliance program. You will no longer be asking “What has happened?” (reactive), but instead “What could happen?” (predictive) and “What should we do?” (prescriptive).
Real-time Insights, Benchmarking, and more
Convercent Insights helps professionals to reduce time spent preparing board reports from weeks to minutes because they’re armed with compelling visualizations that track their program effectiveness. E&C professionals can now lead proactively, and promote positive change in their organizations when equipped with comprehensive data and strategic analysis tools.
Identify Systemic Problems and Prevent Future Incidents
Program assessments and regular benchmarking highlight problem areas in relation to federal guidelines and expectations, but root cause analysis shines a light on problems within your organization right down to the employee level—things that more structured assessments might not uncover.
Convercent’s Case Manager allows investigators to capture and record organizational, behavioral and external contributing factors. This allows for the visualization of reported issue outliers and the ability to drill down to contributing factors for subsequent
Convercent’s Employee Scorecard is a powerful tool aggregating all of an employee’s different interactions with the Convercent application (ie. Separate allegations, COIs, Gifts and Entertainment), giving investigators an accurate perspective of an employee’s ethical behavior when initially kicking off an investigation.
