âThe demands of an effective GRC program donât end when our customers step away from their desks. With the explosive amount if data they are managing to evaluate business risks and demonstrate regulatory compliance, mobile access to this information is no longer a luxury; itâs a necessity,â said Peter Novosel, vice president of products for Archer. âThe Archer team is excited to deliver on our customersâ request for anytime, anywhere access to critical GRC data.â
With Archer Mobile, clients now have a way to leverage key processes and information from their existing enterprise GRC best-practice applications. Practical uses of Archer Mobile include:

â¢ Integrating with Google Maps and MS Maps for quick access to physical locations and contact information
â¢ Pinpointing a vendor facility while travelling for an on-site third-party audit
â¢ Reading the details of a physical or cyber incident and making informed decisions on how to respond while away from the office
