GuardianERM.Net has two powerful reporting functions, Guardian Reports and User Reports.

Guardian reports are pre-defined reports with many configuration options to tailor the report to the user's needs.  User reports allow the user to define custom reports.

Guardian Reports:

The Guardian Reports function is opened in a new window such that you can review the reports while working online at the same time. It is particularly useful when you are working on exception reports as you can verify or correct problems online based on information obtained from the reports.

Applying various filters to selected areas of the risk management structure, the reporting function allows you to produce reports from complete listings of data to highlighting issues of special interest. The flexibility of preview the report online, printing hard copies or exporting to Microsoft Excel for further analysis adds to the functionality of the reports.

Note: You must allow pop-up in your Internet Explorer setting for GuardianERM.Net. Otherwise the reporting function will not work.
