Today, risk management is vital in a financial organization’s decisionmaking process. However, uncertainty in business markets and augmentation of the regulation process in the financial sectors are devastating consumer perception and reducing shareholder value. The banking regulatory compliance tools that can promise reliability are ineffective in the present day regulation scenario. In addition, the use of multifaceted tools across various departments amplifies cost, produces silos and suspicion in data, which prevents risk and compliance executives to make intellectual and appropriate decisions. Addressing the need of the hour, 360factors provides cloud based Enterprise Risk and Compliance Management automation technology and services to organizations. “We enable customers to improve business performance by reducing risk and ensuring compliance,” begins Ed Sattar, CEO of 360factors.

Apart from regulatory risk and compliance management software, the company also provides advisory services to address Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) or Anti Money Laundering (AML), internal audit, and information security solutions. “We help create compliance programs to address requirements from FDIC, FRB, OCC, CFPB, FRR, FCC, FTC, NCUA, FINRA and other regulations through a simple yet effective regulatory risk and change management model and methodology,” adds Sattar. Replacing the outdated banking tools, the company is meeting the risk and compliance demands of banking institutions cost-effectively and efficiently.

360factors also provides consultative services for Home Management Disclosure Act (HMDA) data management. Through their products, the company automates organizations’ collection, verification and certification of HMDA data without increasing loan processing time or the need to retrain staff. This eradicates massive amount of time required for manual data clean-up.

The company’s product, Predict360 utilizes mapping and cognitive computing technologies to deliver regulatory insight, foresee risks and drive operational excellence.

“Our platform is enterprise regulatory risk and compliance as well as department specific GRC software that vertically integrates manifold modules providing management with optimal visibility into complete risk and compliance aspects of the firm,” notes Sattar. In addition, Predict360 offers industry specific workflows and paraphernalia adapting to the requirements of functional managers, allowing them to administer their everyday threat and compliance tasks to increase competency, suppleness, quality, and productivity.
