Riskonnect was named the winner of a Bronze Stevie® Award in the Best New Product or Service of the Year category for Software – Governance, Risk & Compliance Solution in The 16th Annual American Business Awards®.

“This recognition highlights the focused efforts Riskonnect took during 2017 to improve our governance, risk and compliance offerings,” said Jim Wetekamp, Riskonnect CEO. “Last year’s acquisition of Aruvio broadened our existing platform with fully developed functionality like anti-bribery and enterprise GRC at a time when enterprises across various vertical markets are facing increased rules and regulations.”

The American Business Awards are the U.S.A.’s premier business awards program. All organizations operating in the U.S.A. are eligible to submit nominations – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small.

More than 3,700 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories, including Startup of the Year, Executive of the Year, Best New Product or Service of the Year, Marketing Campaign of the Year, Live Event of the Year, and App of the Year, among others.

Nominated in the Best New Product or Service of the Year category for Software – Governance, Risk & Compliance Solution, the Stevie’s panel of judges noted Riskonnect’s desire to bring innovation to an area facing tremendous growth and opportunity, calling it a “very useful service for anticipating and managing risk.”

More than 200 professionals worldwide participated in the judging process to select this year’s Stevie Award winners.

“The nominations submitted for The 2018 American Business Awards were outstanding. The competition was intense, and those recognized as Stevie Award winners should be immensely proud of this accomplishment,” said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards.

Riskonnect will receive their award during a gala ceremony in New York on June 11.
