Rizikon Assurance release note - v1.9

Rizikon Assurance has been updated to version 1.9 as of 25th January 2019.

Version 1.9 contains the following changes;

Improved Usability and Accessibility

Various actions have been reworked to become clearer and easier to use, and tooltips have been added to describe available actions or sections to users throughout the platform.  Layout and colour schemes have also been updated to improve readability.

Terminology Changes

Terminology across the platform has also been updated and clarified.  Such changes include a renaming of “Suppliers” to “Organisations”, as the portal may be used to assure any organisation not exclusively within the supply chain.

Usage And Statistics Page

Usage and statistics are now available to customer admins, accessible through the manager summary page.  This allows these managers to easily monitor the metadata on their portal, allowing them to see more information and track their assurance programme with ease.

Modern Slavery Assessment

We have added a Modern Slavery Risk assessment to our standard library of assessments. This can now be used along with our existing standard assessments by an organisation to assess the risk of Modern Slavery within organisations in their supply chain, and that are linked to the goods or services they are procuring.

Risk scoring is based on the 2018 Global Slavery Index Slavery Vulnerability Model data and US Department of Labor List of Goods Produced by Child Labor or Forced Labor (2018) data for high risk countries and materials.  To find out more, visit: https://www.rizikon.io/modern-slavery-risk

Assessment Notes

Managers can now add an externally visible note to an assessment, visible on the summary page of the assessment and in the corresponding notification email. This is an optional note that managers can use to introduce an assessment and provide any extra information to organisations before they begin completion.

Improved Email Notifications

Email notifications now have more detailed and helpful wording, as well as directly referencing the organisation that sent out the notification on the email “from” field to be more recognisable.

If you have any questions or issues, please let us know via support@rizikon.io

Rizikon Assurance release note - v1.8

Rizikon Assurance has been updated to version 1.8 as of 30th October 2018.

Version 1.8 contains the following changes;

Improved Assessment Renewal

Assessment renewal dates can now be set upon Approval/Rejection of an assessment. Renewal dates now appear in the Assessment List view, and there is now a filter option to display all renewal dates that are up for renewal.

Supplier Tagging

Suppliers can now be “tagged” and organised into groups. This allows managers to sort suppliers into categories such as “Risk level”, “Location”, “Certifications held”, and any other grouping that can be defined by managers. Tags can then be used to filter the Supplier List, and can be used to target specific suppliers for review or assessment.

Anti-Bribery & Corruption assessment

We have added an Anti-Bribery and Corruption assessment to our standard library of assessments. This can now be used along with our existing standard assessments and assesses the risk of bribery or corruption within an organisation.

Improved setup for new customers

We have improved our new customer setup process to allow new customers to start using Rizikon Assurance as quickly as possible.

Improved Email Notifications

Email notifications now reference the assessments that generated them, so completers and assessors are aware of the specific assessment that requires attention.

If you have any questions or issues, please let us know via support@rizikon.io

Rizikon Assurance release note - v1.6

Rizikon Assurance has been updated to version 1.6 as of 8th August 2018.

Version 1.6 contains the following changes;

Improved Review page

The review page has been updated to allow assessors to efficiently review all answers, comments, and attachments in one place. Assessors can now flag questions, add comments, view attachments, and manually update the assessment scores from the review page (If enabled). By viewing and responding to all answers on one screen, the review process is now significantly faster for assessors.

Improved Manager assessment status graph

The manager assessment status graph now includes click-through filtering. Managers can view a list of assessments filtered by status by clicking on the assessment status graph.

Date type questions

Assessments can now include dates as an answer type. This allows suppliers to enter expiry dates, certification dates, renewal dates, and more. Date questions include a calendar selection method to ensure consistent date formatting when sending assessments to different countries.

Dynamic table questions

Assessments can now include dynamic table questions. Dynamic tables allow completers to add as many rows as required to answer the question. These tables can be used to gather information when the number of rows can't be specified in advance. 

Decimal questions

Assessments can now include non-integer numbers as answers, allowing for a wider range of number based inputs.

Optional Freetext questions

Freetext questions can now be made "optional" meaning that a completer is not required to answer the question. Optional freetext can be used to add a description or explanation to an answer if further details are required, but without forcing all completers to add unnecessary details.

If you have any questions or issues, please let us know via support@rizikon.io
