Wolters Kluwer Financial Services (WKFS) has revamped its various governance, finance, risk and Compliance (GFRC) solutions, which are now under the company’s new OneSumX brand.
“The move allows [us] to provide financial organisations with a complementary and comprehensive ecosystem of GFRC solutions and services that enables them to take a forward-looking approach to managing compliance, risk and performance, the company stated
The OneSumX brand replaces several of WKFS’s solutions and brands, including ARC Logics, BankReg, Financial Studio, Summix, RiskPro, RegPro, SVENSON, Wiz Sentri and Examiner.
“WKFS has helped its customers stay ahead of changing marketplace dynamics by investing heavily in existing product innovation,” said Raffi Festekjian, president and chief executive (CEO) of the company’s finance, risk and compliance business.
“At the same time, we’ve made a number of acquisitions that have allowed us to extend and expand upon the overall GFRC capabilities we can offer our customers,”
The company added that OneSumX allows financial organisations to address a single risk or business issue, but in the context of a much larger and holistic way of managing GFRC. An organisation’s finance, risk and compliance areas can work together with a common goal of helping maintain profitability and find additional ways to safely grow the business.
