How an RMIS Fits into a Company's Risk Management Process


Many companies already have risk management strategies in place. Managers of these companies may wonder how a risk management information system, or RMIS, can help them improve their processes in order to save time, get better results, and of course, reduce the chance of accidents. At the same time, managers may wonder if they will have to change the way that they do business in order to implement new technology.

Ready for the challenge!

I am writing  today at a very special time in Ventiv’s history.

Over the last 40 years we have established our company as a global leader in risk, safety and claims software solutions used by more than 550 enterprises and 270,000 people in 51 countries. In the last year alone we have accomplished extraordinary milestones, beginning with our spinoff from Aon. From there, we’ve enhanced our unique ability to address clients’ most pressing and complex issues, garnered multiple industry awards, expanded our global team with more than 50 key hires, and established our position in the marketplace behind the “Problem, Solved” campaign, which is raising awareness in the marketplace about our unique combination of purpose-built products and industry expertise.

I’m proud to have been a part of the journey. These successes not only prove that we have laid a strong foundation, but that Ventiv is ready to rise to the next level. And as we enter our next phase of global growth, I’m honored to lead the company as CEO.

In the coming months, you’ll see meaningful changes as we begin our new journey toward even bigger goals and opportunities. Most notably, I am pleased that Kathy Burns will still be an integral part of our future, as she is moving to the Ventiv board of directors. This is a natural progression for her, having led eSolutions through years of growth when we were Aon eSolutions; spearheading the sale of eSolutions to Symphony Technology Group; and creating and stabilizing Ventiv. As a board member Kathy will focus on growth opportunities including acquisitions, partnerships and channels. Additionally, this transition allows her to spend more time with her family after devoutly working and traveling for many years to get Ventiv to where it is today.

On behalf of the entire Ventiv Family, I want to say how grateful we are for Kathy’s leadership over the past nine years, and how excited we are that she will continue to play a meaningful role in our future.

As I begin my journey as CEO I am excited, eager, motivated and honored to work with our clients, our Ventiv colleagues, and the market. We will remain focused and committed to cultivating Ventiv’s employees and producing innovations that will continue to raise the bar in the market. 

In closing, I want to leave you with one of my favorite quotes from Jim Collins:
