ASC Pty Ltd Appoints Risk Decisions to Boost Risk Management

Oxford, 16 January 2017: Australia’s leading naval shipbuilder and submarine organisation, ASC Pty Ltd, has appointed Risk Decisions as its new risk management partner. The Risk Decisions’ Asia-Pacific team will implement its enterprise Predict! platform to evolve ASC’s current risk management strategy, building on their specialist expertise in the defence sector.

Embedding a mature risk strategy

ASC’s aim is to develop its risk management strategy to free-up the leadership team’s ability to focus on governance and compliance. It required a flexible and secure platform, adaptable to its changing needs. Predict! provides this flexibility while being an integrated risk management and analysis tool, personalised to support future business, including bids and tender support and help manage supply chains.

Designed for user experience

Predict! is designed to deliver a quick and simple user experience for everyone involved in an organisation’s risk process. Its intuitive ease of use improves adoption, and encourages engagement with risk management at all levels. Reporting can be configured to better manage risk data, ensuring outcomes are effectively shared back to key decision makers.

Kirsty Low, Risk & Insurance Manager, ASC comments, “Risk Decisions has enabled a real transformation in our risk management. We’re incredibly excited to see improvements across productivity and effectiveness as a result of the improved engagement which is enabling a far more proactive approach to risk management and ultimately enabling our leadership teams to make more informed business decisions. We’re now observing maturing of our risk strategy.”

“Importantly for us, Predict! is used by our customers and the wider defence industry, including some of our key suppliers. This visibility and standardisation gives us a common language and supports transparency in the way we operate and support customers and stakeholders.”

Opening up risk management

Predict’s concurrent licensing additionally brings benefits over and above cost effectiveness. It removes barriers to everyone having visibility of risk content across all users as well as “high level users” driving both risk awareness and communication. All ASC employees can access risk and opportunity management data supporting decision making

Fiona Racher, Risk Decisions’ Director and Co-Owner, adds, “Predict! is all about helping our customers take that next step towards a better, easier way to manage risk. ASC is clear about how risk can help them deliver their business objectives and we’re committed to delivering a future-proof platform that evolves with them as an organisation and a partner.”
