Buyers guide


Last Updated: May 8, 2019

Compliance software is at the heart of an organization’s efforts to continually track whether business processes are aligned with applicable laws, organizational policies and the standards of consumers and business partners.

Of course, a corporate compliance program goes far beyond software, and businesses in certain industries may not even need software to manage compliance requirements. However, large businesses and organizations in sensitive industries (pharmaceutical manufacturing, financial services etc.) generally benefit from an approach to compliance issues that’s partially automated by software.

Compliance management functionality can be found in various types of software. We’ll help you understand your options, so you can make the right choice for your specific business model and industry.

Here’s what we’ll cover:

Reviewers' Choice Products

Our Reviewers’ Choice list shows the five highest user-rated software solutions for Compliance when adjusted for total number of reviews and recency of reviews.

If a software solution has more reviews, and more recent reviews, we value those ratings more highly than a product with fewer, older reviews. This is because is it much harder to get 100 five-star reviews than it is to get 10.

We also know that software vendors continually tweak and update their product, so we believe that more recent reviews tend to be more accurate.

To determine which products made the final cut, we looked at how users rated each solution's:

  • Overall performance,
  • Ease of use, and
  • Customer support

A solution can make the Reviewers' Choice top five in all three categories, or just one or two. All software solutions in the Reviewers' Choice have at least 10 reviews from real software users. The final products are listed in alphabetical order from left to right.

For more details on how we selected our Reviewers' Choice, read the full methodology.

Which Types of Software Help With Compliance Management?

There are essentially three kinds of compliance management software (also known as corporate compliance and oversight tools) on the market:

  • All-purpose compliance management platforms
  • Industry-specific compliance management tools
  • Governance, risk and compliance (GRC) software

All-purpose compliance management platforms offer generic capabilities for compliance management across industries. Sample vendors include CMO Compliance and Navex.

Industry-specific tools help businesses in heavily regulated industries (health care, industrial manufacturing, financial services etc.) meet specific legislative and commercial requirements.

GRC platforms include generic compliance management features alongside a broader set of capabilities for risk management and corporate governance (for instance, IT risk management, business continuity planning, and legal management). Sample vendors include Enablon.

In this buyer’s guide, we’ll focus on all-purpose compliance management platforms as well as GRC platforms. Industry-specific tools are so niche in functionality that your specific business model will significantly whittle down your shortlist of vendors.

What Is the Core Functionality of Compliance Software?

Compliance software covers a huge range of business processes, regulations and industry needs. It’s no surprise that platforms are highly diverse in their functionality.

Compliance doesn’t stop at industry regulations and standards (OSHA, ISO etc.). Corporate ethics policies, acceptable use policies, and even business partner policies can all pose compliance issues. For instance, Wal-Mart suppliers have to meet a number of stringent standards that suppliers of many other major retailers don’t have to bother with.

Let’s therefore zoom in on the most important components of a compl
