The whistleblower tech company will supply ethics management SaaS solution EthicsPro® to Australian enterprises.
NSW, Australia 02/08/2022
Australian enterprises of all shapes and sizes will soon be managing their ethical reporting obligations better, supporting open and honest workplaces, and helping prevent fraud in the workplace, with the national launch of Report It Now AU, a global provider of ethical reporting services and ethics SaaS platform EthicsPro®.
Today’s launch follows the completion of a new Australian licensing deal that will see Report It Now’s service and software available here.
“We’re thrilled to be bringing Report It Now™ to Australia,” says Report It Now AU Director, Petrina Maxwell.
“Australia is a natural market for Report It Now™. Recent changes to local and state whistleblowing legislation puts the onus on business leaders to keep workplaces safe, and to support employees who need to report and speak up about wrongdoing in the workplace, so there is a real need for this type of solution.”
“Report It Now™ provides organisations with the training and tools – most notably the EthicsPro® Case Management System, which lets employees speak up anonymously and confidentially about wrongdoing in the workplace that they encounter, via a telephone hotline or online submission.”
Research shows that utilising an independent ethical reporting system such as Report It Now in the workplace can cut losses from fraud by around half*.
“Receiving regular reports from employees about ethical issues that arise in the workplace is the sign of a healthy company culture,” says Tony Clendon, Report It Now AU. “If you’re not receiving reports, then that’s a sign that those channels of communication aren’t open”.
“Employees need to feel empowered and supported to speak up about wrongdoing they encounter. EthicsPro® supports whistleblowers to tell the truth in a safe, discrete, anonymous way. They’re put in contact with a case manager – a real person – who can empathetically work with them to complete their submission, and then keep them up to date as their submission progresses through the internal investigation process.”
“While there are other software-based whistleblowing systems out there, very few provide this sort of people-centric approach – such as real people on the other end of the phone, or 24/7 service for example, in one functional, easy-to-use package.”
Enterprise-grade EthicsPro® provides:
- Automated benchmarking and reporting
- Software backed up by humans: easy to contact all day, every day
- Multi-language support
- Device agnostic and device flexibility: compatible across but not limited to Mobile, Desktop, and Tablets
- Tailored reporting forms: customised for each Australian client and including individual, dual-branded landing pages
- Process-driven software: keeping you informed through every step
Report It Now™ was formed in 2007 to help business manage their business risk by supporting open, honest workplaces, free from bullying, fraud and harassment.
