Compliance Solution for Project-oriented Businesses by Onepoint and icomedias

Integrated Support for Compliance, Risk Management and Governance - on project and enterprise level

Onepoint Software GmbH, together with their new partner icomedias Holding GmbH of Graz and Berlin, have developed an innovative software solution for compliance support in project-oriented businesses. The "Digital Compliance" solution connects the actual execution of commissioned projects to the company specifications via an interactive workflow.

The solution facilitates the implementation of compliance guidelines for project-oriented businesses, such as the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX). Therefore, Onepoint and icomedias, with their common solution, target particularly C-level executives and board members of public companies with a strong project focus. The complete project cycle can be documented in a semi-automated and audit-proof way. This starts with the commissioning of the project, goes on with progress reports and milestones, and ends with the digital signature on the final project report.

"There is often a huge gap between what the board has commissioned and what is actually being implemented in projects - a problem which is not always immediately obvious to anyone. This might not simply cause economic, but also legal implications for C-level executives and board members", says Gerald Mesaric, CEO of Onepoint. "Our Digital Compliance solution closes this gap and, thus, protects the corporate management."

Onepoint and Icomedias will present their Digital Compliance solution for the first time at the booth of Icomedias (hall 7 booth A-060) at the DMS Expo in Cologne, Germany, from September 25 to 27. Both companies bundle their individual strengths in this product: Onepoint offer the project leadership, and icomedias their expertise in document management and in the area of digital signatures.

Onepoint is a vendor of software for project leadership for high-tech organizations. Through the innovative integration of project management and project controlling, it succeeds in visualizing project structure, costs and dates for all participants in a clear and understandable way. Thus, also the administration effort is reduced. Icomedias, with headquarters in Graz and Berlin, is a specialist for digital business processes. Icomedias customers include the Landtag Brandenburg, the Bayerische Landtag, the state of Salzburg and the Steirische Krankenanstalten. With the paperless Landtag Styria (PALLAST), icomedias implemented the first totally digitally working Landtag, including digital signatures, in Europe.
