A great tool to embed risk management within a large organisation

Pros

- Ease of use - Pricing model - Tips in the system of how to get more out of the software

Cons

In some ways, it's simplistic nature can be a limitation. But overall, in a generally immature risk environment the simple nature allows for greater adoption making it accessible to non risk experts

Reasons for Choosing GOAT Risk

- Ease of use - Pricing model - Simple implementation - No training required

GOAT is simple and straight to the point

We need a good risk evaluation tool that makes it simple to create and get an overview of the risk in our organisation. This is both for our ISO 27001 certification, which GOAT helped us get in place, and in general. We tried several competitors, and they all made it so complex.

Pros

It is very simple and easy to use. The limited features are straight to the point, not a whole lot of admin, categories, or other distractions. It is even possible to turn off the features we don't use, so they don't get in the way.

Cons

The set of reports and options on the reports could be larger.

Reasons for Choosing GOAT Risk

Confluence was too manual, the others were too complex.

Response from GOAT Risk Solutions

Thanks so much for the review @Jorgen. It's funny how simplicity is one of the hardest things to achieve with software because the inherent trade-off is to limit features and flexibilty. The report options are a case in point, it is very simple in that there are only a handful of report options to choose from which we feel are the staples but if you have other report ideas and options you'd like to build in, we can speak about custom developments whenever you are ready.

Great product, as a non risk expert

Pros

Ease of use and ease of deployment, no training needed whatsoever

GOAT review

Excellent!

Pros

Its ease of use and the guidance built into the software. The built in reports

Cons

In the controls description field not enough of the text is visible while typing. Inability to delete templates. Inability to copy or duplicate a risk

Reasons for Choosing GOAT Risk

Too expensive and complicated to customize and implement. GOAT mirrors the fields that would be forund in an excel register so it is easy to understand and use.

GOAT Review

We are introducing GOAT to centralise the recording and reporting of risks across the organisation. In turn, GOAT will help improve the risk culture and awareness of risk across service areas, especially where there are relationships and interdependencies.

Pros

I like that the software is intuitive and simple to use without over complicating the risk information which is needed from each risk owner.

Cons

Due to the fact we have to create multiple reports with multiple contributors with varying formats, the pdf reporting functionality doesn't suit our reporting processes. Having the ability to download the report into Microsoft word would allow us to better customise the risk report, dependant on the audience who is reviewing it.

Reasons for Choosing GOAT Risk

The ease of use, The visualisation of data in the KRI graphs and the risk maps, The price point.

A simple. but, powerful tool that allows risks to be taken out of a spreadsheet and shared.

Risk Register preparation at enterprise level.

Pros

Very simple to deploy and use, the ability to assign the risk and actions to risk owners and have the program automatically follow them up is appreciated.

Cons

The ability to tun on and off the three types risk (treated, untreated and target) will reduce clutter when presenting risks to the board or in other formal presentations.

Reasons for Choosing GOAT Risk

Simple, cost effective and joy to use.

Response from GOAT Risk Solutions

Thanks for the review @Russell, great to hear that you find it a "joy to use" because we need to make risk management engaging and fun for your stakeholders. You might be able to try adding a drop down menu in the templates to address the different types of risks but if this doesn't quite do it, then let me know if you want to discuss a small custom development project.

Simply brilliant

This is easy to use and provides great reports to facilitate the board but in and understanding of risk registers. It is presented very well. GOAT offer great follow up support to help with any queries during the initial set up phase and beyond. I genuinely believe that this is a top class product developed by people who understand risk but also the need to simplify its delivery. Simply brilliant

Pros

The thing I like most is the ease of use but also the visual outputs / reports it provides without any set up needed.

Cons

My least favourite thing about the product was setting up the initial templates.

Thank you for for the great review, we completely understand configuring the system is the least easy thing to do in GOAT as this is only done seldomly by the Administrator. You've probably figured it out by now but we also have a step by step guide to Creating Templates in our Training and Support section of the system.

Best Risk Management Software

Easy, inexpensive and practical. Value for money!

Pros

This is the best Risk Management Software on the market. A lot of software on the market, are expensive, clunky and put off users and most important they do not link to any risk data points (KRIs).

Cons

none so far. The software does what it says on the tin
