Pros: Project supporting facilities and ease of quant modelling.

Cons: output for quant analysis looks 'clunky'. Could use updating.

Overall: Running a proof of concept, the team have been extremely supportive. Many issues to overcome which were all handled with professionalism and ease.

Recommendations to other buyers: It is extremely flexible. Fully explore the administration possibilities before diving in.

Thank you Alec for your review of ARM 8. Your cons will certainly be addressed in ARM 9 with a complete revamp of our quantitative analysis capability. This includes a much improved exporting option along with analysis data exposed to RPM (Report building module) to give you that extra flexibility to design your own outputs.

Amazing software, best on the market and nothing else comes close to it...

Pros: Flexiable, easy to use, configuartion of reports, new features that make it better year on year

Cons: None

Overall: I have been using this product throughout my various careers for over 10 years and the support and help I have received to make risk management a priority for the business has been very useful. The product itself helps non risk professional understand the outputs via easy to use reports

Recommendations to other buyers: No 1 choice for many businesses due to doing what it says on the tin

Pros: Straight out of the box. Highly configurable, immediate results. Build your own reports. Identify root causes.

Cons: No cons that I have identified

Overall: I have used this software for over 5 years.
It's ease of use and immediate configurability make it a joy to use. No Board would want to wait 3 to 13 months for additional risk capability. With ARM, you have it all straight out of the box.

Recommendations to other buyers: It is the only software that straight of the shelf, plug in and go. Scalable to the smallest and largest companies
