Furness Building Society recognised its need for a risk management system to replace an existing spreadsheet model. Use of spreadsheets can severely affect an organisation’s ability to manage risk effectively and efficiently.  By adopting Xactium Risk, Furness Building Society will be able to capture and monitor risks using one central secure system and generate accurate reports at the click of a button, based on real-time information.

Furness Building Society are an independent building society offering a range of savings accounts and mortgage products as well as  a range of other financial products enabled by a variety of business partnerships.

Nicola Coulson, Operational Risk Manager at Furness Building Society Says:  “We are delighted to be working with Xactium Risk Management and are confident of the benefits the system will provide us with.  With Xactium, we have found a fully configurable and user friendly solution which will vastly improve risk reporting for the Society.  It will also provide real time reporting of risks and actions at any point in time. The system has already been well received by the team and the automation of this function will help them to focus on more value-adding activities.”

Andy Evans, Managing Director, Xactium says: “It’s great to be working with a modern, forwarding thinking Building Society like Furness and we are excited at the prospect of working with them to embed Xactium across the organisation and help them to build a consolidated approach to risk management without the use of spreadsheets. Furness  will be joining a rapidly growing number of building societies now using Xactium risk management to transform the way risk is managed and perceived across their organisations.”
