Pros: As administrator: It is easy to understand data maintenance in setting-up organisation/Business unit. The tendency of complicating data quality is low. The size of users' access is suitably commensurable.Becoming conversant as a result of flexibility
As a user: It is easy to use and application speed is fast.

Cons: I will need to login every time I use it,though I'm aware that it's a cloud based software, which requires this kind of security.

Pros: There are many positives, including very good value for money. The extent it can be tailored to specific needs and the addition of new features and functionality gives it significant future proofing for our needs, although we do have a number of suggestions for further enhancements/changes.

Cons: As different users have different access permissions what is displayed on e.g. dashboards only covers those records they can see. However, this is not clear on the screens when viewed and could therefore lead to some confusion/misleading information. A message linking to their access permissions etc would add this clarity - e.g. This displays only 'Resources' business unit records. We also have a number of other suggestions for enhancements and changes, e.g. secondary filters for dashboards.

Overall: Simple, quick

Pros: I like the fact the the software is configurable for our organization. This allows us to use terminology that we are familiar with for rating our risks.

Cons: I would like to see more variety in the standard reports. Perhaps we could share report templates that other organizations have customized.

Comments: Essex Fire moved to the CORE product following Microsoft no longer supporting our server software, and thereby saying goodbye to JCAD RISK. The migration went smoothly although we are teasing out a couple of glitches. It retains transparency across the Service.
CORE offfers more administrator choice. I would like to see more options for "tool tips" than are currently available. We look forward to receiving the very latest version as soon as possible.

Implementation of JCAD as a multi-site ERM solution

Customer Support

Comments: After an open market bid project, JCAD as chosen as the preferred contractor to work on the implementation of an organisation wide ERM tool for 3,500 sites. The requirement was to have an easy to use interface for non-risk professionals and a hierarchical structure that allowed parent/child risks to be shown and escalated within the business in line with the Board defined risk tolerances.

The project was handled very well, all key milestones and deliverables were met on time, minor technical issues were quickly resolved. An added bonus from working with JCAD was that existing Excel base risk registers were uploaded into the new system direct at the develop team side, thus saving in excess of 1000 hours of manual input.

The defined fields within the system can be easily adapted and our implementation package included a training programme for in house administrators, supported by telephone and IT tech support by the JCAD team.

User testing with our own IT team proved invaluable and again JCAD delivered the goods by sending a technical specialist to work with our own network and systems teams to ensure there were no network conflicts when the system went live.

Overall I would strongly support the use of JCAD.

Comments: The organisation needed a way to better manage its risks, rather than the disjointed arrangements we had using Excel and Word.

Through positive referrals from other organisations and a comparison/interview exercise with organisations using rival software packages, I was confident that JCAD risk was the solution for us. I haven┬┐t been disappointed.

Comments: The JCAD Core risk tool allows us to provides wide access across the organisation via the internet to the Councils' corprorate, departmental and project risk registers. The automated review reminders are great at ensuring risks are regularly reviewed. The ability to tailor some field descriptions and contents allows flexibility and bespoke functionality within the users control. The audit tracker follows these principles and although new to this element of the system the set up and training was simple and clear to understand.
