Version 5, the latest version of ERA that was released on 31 May, has a new look and contains powerful new functionality that will enable users to further adapt the appearance and feel of the software to suit their own unique needs and risk appetite.
Current users of ERA will note the difference in the look of the software following a revamp of the design of the home windows. Changes have been made to simplify navigation and the flow of data input, including the addition of clear graphs on the Assessor home window to allow users to assess the current state of their risk portfolio at a glance.
The upgrade includes a number of enhancements to the functionality of ERA, one of which is the inclusion of a Data Dictionary. ERA is already one of the most adaptable risk management software tools on the market, the inclusion of a Data Dictionary will further increase this adaptability by allowing users to change terminology to suit their own in-house terms, to customise the field level help and to set security levels.
Clients who use ERA to automate their Sarbanes-Oxley requirements will find that the additions to the internal audit functionality will assist them greatly in their tasks.
Clients who have maintenance agreements with Methodware will be able to upgrade to ERA 5 free of charge.
