NETconsent is the leading vendor of policy management software and also provides additional software modules which support an organisation’s wider corporate communications strategy.

NETconsent cost-effectively automates policy management, assuring governance throughout the enterprise. Making policies more visible and enforceable raises standards of individual accountability and conduct.

What is Policy Management

Policies must influence people’s behaviour if they are to prove effective in achieving operational efficiencies, regulatory compliance and cost savings.

Consequently the policy management process cannot simply stop at the creation and publication of policies and procedures. Too many corporate policies remain unread or are unreadable!

To assure governance across the enterprise (i.e. embed best practice policies and procedures into day-to-day working life and behaviours) policy management must encompass not only well written policies, but also seek to:

  1. Raise awareness of new and updated policies and procedures;
  2. Ensure people understand relevant policies and procedures;
  3. Record people’s acceptance to abide by policies and procedures;
  4. Demonstrate effective policy controls are in place;
  5. Provide an accurate audit trail of activities;
  6. Report policy compliance.
