Pan Software – RiskWare

Pan Software – RiskWare has been selected as an ABA100 Winner for Software Innovation in The Australian Business Awards 2019. The Australian Business Award for Software Innovation [SWR] recognises software products and services that provide innovative solutions for new and existing market needs.

From the beginning, Pan Software’s ethos was to make the world a little less risky and to this end, Pan Software’s flag-ship product RiskWare, aims to empower organisations to achieve just that.

For well over a decade, Pan Software has been building on the principles that got them started – integrity, creativity and collaborative thinking. Ultimately, their success has not only been due to the quality of the RiskWare product, it can also be attributed to their attitude, approach and the way they treat their clients. This provides them with the freedom to build the platforms, products, and experiences that transform businesses and help them thrive.

Further contributing to the success has been the ability of Pan Software to foster a unique and innovative corporate culture. This culture has not only meant that Pan Software can be viewed as the go-to place in the Melbourne Tech scene, but also providing employees an environment where individuality is celebrated, and innovation is embraced. This has resulted in Pan Software growing from its humble beginnings to now employing over 40 staff and boasting some of Australians most recognised brands as clients.

Pan Software has been developing, implementing and supporting risk and safety systems since 2003. In 2007, in-conjunction with industry experts and early draft submissions of the proposed international standard for risk management, Pan Software began designing, developing and testing the enterprise risk management software solution, RiskWare.

Today, RiskWare remains a best-in-class Enterprise Risk Intelligence (ERI) solution. RiskWare comprises of 10 tightly integrated modules conforming to recognised local and international standards to help integrate all areas of risk across a business. With global markets opening up and an increasing complex legislative and regulatory environment in which businesses have to operate, RiskWare remains as popular today as when it launched. By continually ensuring RiskWare remains aligned and up to date with the latest industry trends and standards, clients and the industry at large maintain confidence in the value the RiskWare product brings.

At present there are two key areas that RiskWare is leading the risk and safety market through these innovative approaches. They are, mobility and consumer information based on the acquisition of big data which aligns with and informs the strategic direction of businesses worldwide.

Almost every electronic device is connected and the expectation to stay connected is increasing. As a result, the workplace as we know it, is evolving and becoming more fluid in meaning. Understanding and enabling this, RiskWare has led the market in providing a range of mobile solutions that both support and enhance organisational capability and performance so that businesses can get the most out of the RiskWare product, regardless of where their workforce are. Each of these mobile apps has been designed to seamlessly integrate with the RiskWare product ensuring that irrespective of how a business chooses to work, their risk and safety practices are supported.

With 1.25 million active users and some of Australia’s most well-known brands, Pan Software maintains a powerful market position that enables it to provide industry and sector forums where professionals can not only network and share ideas, but also conduct peer discussions on emerging industry trends. This provides a valuable network and collaborative space for clients and a forum where information can also be used to shape future development of the RiskWare product

This ensures that client investment in the RiskWare product is safeguarded as RiskWare always maintains an eye on industry and sector trends and identifies gaps and niches that represent new directions and opportunities to continually improve and refine the RiskWare product.

Ultimately, RiskWare has a proven track record of providing an intuitive and powerful platform for clients to quickly and easily get real time business intelligence to inform decisions. Furthermore, with up to ten tightly integrated modules, RiskWare provides businesses with the flexibility to create a RiskWare solution that enables them to tell their unique story.
