There are still a few weeks left in summer for a road trip (and to get your compliance program organized). We’ve talked about the importance of avoiding the detours, traffic jams and speed traps that lead to slow downs. And we’ve talked about keeping distractions to a minimum by keeping your kids engaged and your eyes on the road. If you are keeping these things in mind in your compliance program you will have an easier time avoiding the unexpected expenses that can happen on your way to Compliance Canyon. Beyond these expenses the main unexpected cost that can occur is your system going off the rails.
Just like the dreaded check-engine light once you notice something is wrong in your compliance program there might be a costly fix in your future. Keeping an eye on your dashboards is the best way to catch something before it turns catastrophic. How can you do this? Automation and Reporting.

Means having an automated compliance solution that is able to merge and deliver compliance activities across your organization on one platform. The benefit of using one platform that keeps track of who has completed the necessary tasks and who still needs follow up means that you, as the person in charge of compliance in your organization, will be aware of red flags as they come up. The other option is to get into a lawsuit situation and come to find out personnel have not completed the required tasks making your organization out of compliance.
Having clear and easy to read reporting means when the regulators come knocking you can provide the information that proves your compliance. Having a compliance system with simple reporting also means updating the board of directors and CEO is no longer a time consuming task, freeing your time up to engage employees and avoid traffic jams.
As summer comes to a close and we look back at the journey we have taken to Compliance Canyon we can see how much easier our trip was because of the investment in the right system that helped us pre-plan for the known and unknown pitfalls.
We at Compli wish you safe and happy travels!
