ACM electronically tracks and records all activity on the system, ranging from log-ins to document reviews to approvals, for all users, wherever they are in the world. Everything is integrated. This allows CCOs to have a clear audit trail of all activity, as well as a clear statement of compliance certification from the firm’s subject matter expert/rule owner. It also allows the CCO to seamlessly manage a workflow using one system. The listing of pre-loaded rules also presents CCOs with the opportunity to review rules and determine if their firm is lacking a policy or has an incomplete policy. With a spreadsheet, multiple versions of the spreadsheet may exist. A new version may not be created every time a change is made or information is added, causing confusion and inefficiencies. Additionally, if feedback or approvals are done verbally or via email, it causes a break in the integration of the communication chain, which introduces ambiguity and risk.
