We have now implemented Laser Enterprise Risk Management System (LERMS) for Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) at Atul.The software automates all five activities mentioned above. Features such as surveys, Dash-boards, auto e-mailers and reminders bring ease, efficiency and effectiveness in the system compared to manual system.LERMS has enabled us to bring in uniformity in ERM records maintenance across various businesses and automate the earlier time consuming manual process.
Software was well accepted and appreciated by all the users and Management. The need for customization was minimal. E-trends team ensured that the implementation of the software is seamless to the requirement of our organization. We feel LERMS to be useful to the companies to comply with Risk Management requirements by ensuring robust tracking, managing risks and mitigation plans.
Overall our experience about the system, implementation and training support was highly satisfactory.
