JCAD CORE is a cloud-based risk management solution that enables professionals to manage compliance and monitor risk levels. The software provides features such as audit management, risk assessment, dashboards and automated alerts.

JCAD CORE’s risk register feature enables professionals to collect information on compliance risk, audit reports and identify opportunities. Further, the platform creates a centralized repository that helps in managing and analyzing multiple registers.

A performance metric feature enables executives to analyze risk reports and measure key risk indicators (KRIs). These metrics help managers to decide on corrective action for pending issues. In addition, these facts enable managers to benchmark performance and identify opportunities.

The software sends automated alerts and reminders to take corrective action in case of suspicious behaviour. JCAD CORE is available on a subscription basis and provides phone and email support.

Supported Operating System(s):

    The system is very intuitive and I often have feedback from end users that it is easy to use. I appreciate the ability to add and amend fields in order to support our service offer and ensure the correct risk information is captured.

    Pros

    I appreciate the ability to add and amend the fields displayed throughout the system via the admin site. The JCAD team are also good at taking on feedback and offering an innovative solution to aid our end users.

    Cons

    I would prefer more flexibility and a simpler process to build our own reports and dashboards which would improve our risk reporting and the data presented.

    Pros

    Easy to use as a user myself and application speed time is comensurable with some of the best software on the market

    Cons

    Cloud security requires you to log in excessively which can be a hassle but due to the sensitive nature, very understandable

    Pros

    As administrator: It is easy to understand data maintenance in setting-up organisation/Business unit. The tendency of complicating data quality is low. The size of users' access is suitably commensurable.Becoming conversant as a result of flexibility
    As a user: It is easy to use and application speed is fast.

    Cons

    I will need to login every time I use it,though I'm aware that it's a cloud based software, which requires this kind of security.

    Many thanks for your review Olayiwola. To answer some of your queries the need to login every time could be negated by using single sign on. If you would like to discuss please let me know. Regards Phil

    Simple, quick

    Pros

    There are many positives, including very good value for money. The extent it can be tailored to specific needs and the addition of new features and functionality gives it significant future proofing for our needs, although we do have a number of suggestions for further enhancements/changes.

    Cons

    As different users have different access permissions what is displayed on e.g. dashboards only covers those records they can see. However, this is not clear on the screens when viewed and could therefore lead to some confusion/misleading information. A message linking to their access permissions etc would add this clarity - e.g. This displays only 'Resources' business unit records. We also have a number of other suggestions for enhancements and changes, e.g. secondary filters for dashboards.

    Pros

    I like the fact the the software is configurable for our organization. This allows us to use terminology that we are familiar with for rating our risks.

    Cons

    I would like to see more variety in the standard reports. Perhaps we could share report templates that other organizations have customized.

    Essex Fire moved to the CORE product following Microsoft no longer supporting our server software, and thereby saying goodbye to JCAD RISK. The migration went smoothly although we are teasing out a couple of glitches. It retains transparency across the Service. CORE offfers more administrator choice. I would like to see more options for "tool tips" than are currently available. We look forward to receiving the very latest version as soon as possible.

    Implementation of JCAD as a multi-site ERM solution

    Ease-of-use
    Quality
    Support

    After an open market bid project, JCAD as chosen as the preferred contractor to work on the implementation of an organisation wide ERM tool for 3,500 sites. The requirement was to have an easy to use interface for non-risk professionals and a hierarchical structure that allowed parent/child risks to be shown and escalated within the business in line with the Board defined risk tolerances. The project was handled very well, all key milestones and deliverables were met on time, minor technical issues were quickly resolved. An added bonus from working with JCAD was that existing Excel base risk registers were uploaded into the new system direct at the develop team side, thus saving in excess of 1000 hours of manual input. The defined fields within the system can be easily adapted and our implementation package included a training programme for in house administrators, supported by telephone and IT tech support by the JCAD team. User testing with our own IT team proved invaluable and again JCAD delivered the goods by sending a technical specialist to work with our own network and systems teams to ensure there were no network conflicts when the system went live. Overall I would strongly support the use of JCAD.

    JCAD risk software helps embed risk management across the organisation

    The organisation needed a way to better manage its risks, rather than the disjointed arrangements we had using Excel and Word. Through positive referrals from other organisations and a comparison/interview exercise with organisations using rival software packages, I was confident that JCAD risk was the solution for us. I haven¿t been disappointed.

    Support

    The JCAD Core risk tool allows us to provides wide access across the organisation via the internet to the Councils' corprorate, departmental and project risk registers. The automated review reminders are great at ensuring risks are regularly reviewed. The ability to tailor some field descriptions and contents allows flexibility and bespoke functionality within the users control. The audit tracker follows these principles and although new to this element of the system the set up and training was simple and clear to understand.
