Industry challenges

In today's regulatory environment, portfolio managers must oversee and manage risks across their portfolio companies to maintain compliance and protect asset value. What's more, managing and having oversight on the compliance maturity of their investments is challenging given the siloed nature of their operations, but critical given that cybersecurity and regulatory compliance are imperative in ensuring the longevity of their investments.

Sending and responding to audits across teams using email and spreadsheets

Using email and spreadsheets for audit processes presents challenges such as version control issues, limited collaboration, data security concerns, the lack of audit trail, potential data entry errors, resource intensiveness, and overall inefficiency. 

Auditing across multiple teams


6clicks streamlines the audit processes across your teams, from planning to remediation. It offers a simple approach to sending and responding to assessments and audits, robust audit trails, benchmarking, status management, collaboration, and comprehensive reporting. The audit and assessment module is also tightly integrated with our risk and issues modules to streamline remediation, significantly reducing inefficiencies and pain points associated with spreadsheets, emails and highly repetitive manual processes.


When everyone describes the same issue in different ways

When everyone describes the same remediation risk or issue in different ways, it creates a significant challenge in achieving consistent reporting. This inconsistency leads to confusion, miscommunication, and a lack of clarity regarding the nature and severity of the issue. It hinders the organization's ability to aggregate and analyze data effectively, making it challenging to prioritize and address remediation efforts efficiently. As a result, it can lead to delays in resolving critical issues, increased compliance risks, and difficulties in demonstrating compliance to stakeholders and regulatory bodies.


Utilizing 6clicks' issue and risk libraries resolves the issue of inconsistent descriptions of remediation risks or issues across teams. This solution standardizes terminology, promotes clarity, and streamlines data aggregation. It enables more efficient remediation efforts, reducing delays and compliance risks while simplifying compliance reporting to stakeholders and regulatory bodies. In addition, it fosters knowledge sharing for ongoing improvement.


Cut and pasting from spreadsheets to documents to create static reports

Manually copying data from various spreadsheets and word documents when running an audit or assessment to produce static reports is extremely time-consuming, error prone and inefficient. 

Static audit report and document generation


By utilizing 6clicks' report generator, you can automate the creation of audit and assessment reports, saving significant time and reducing manual effort. Define audit report templates, everything from layout to style, integrate data sources and automate data retrieval, streamlining the entire audit report creation process and ensuring best practice and repeatability every time.


Managing and reporting on multiple GRC programs cases across investment portfolios

Private equity and investment managers struggle to understand their investments' risk and compliance maturity and generate aggregated reporting across their portfolio, let alone support them in running successful GRC programs. This means they lack the oversight and insights to protect their investments.

Managing multiple GRC programs across an investment portfolio


6clicks' unique Hub & Spoke architecture provides a centralized risk and compliance function that spans distributed GRC programs and use cases across a portfolio. The Hub makes it possible to define risk and compliance best practices and content centrally, which is 'pushed down' to Spokes that utilize the full suite of 6clicks GRC modules for day-to-day activities or simply to run internal audits and maturity assessments. Consolidated reporting and analytics are rolled up at the Hub level, giving investment managers comprehensive reporting and insights across their portfolio.
