Onspring Interview

I recently had the opportunity to speak with Jason Rohlf, VP Solutions, Mark Scheinkoenig, VP Commercial Sales, and Emily Figg, VP Marketing about their GRC solution at Onspring to discuss the product audience and upcoming features.

Onspring was founded in 2010 with headquarters in Kansas, USA. Its GRC solution is available in a cloud-only offering with a user-based licensing model. The platform supports a rich number of control frameworks and can use the Universal Compliance Framework (UCF) to minimize the response requirements for common controls.

The product is on a regular refresh cycle, which generally happens quarterly with several upcoming features and enhancements scheduled for release in the next quarter. These include a refresh of the user interface, which aims to provide a cleaner, more modern look that takes advantage of the visual real estate, and an update to the workflow feature set, including the introduction of dynamic workflows with multi-path capability.Upcoming releases will include new options for filtering and reporting on data.

This robust platform has been widely adopted across market sectors.

Our Take

Partnering with an organization that understands the needs of its client base and invests in adapting to change and demand is key. When choosing a vendor, consider the roadmap or the product, whether the features they are planning to introduce are in line with your needs, and review the frequency with which changes are being made. A vendor who is vested in keeping the product current based on feedback from their user community is key to ensuring maximum return on investment over time.
