We provide an internal reporting system for companies. To higher the quality of each incoming report an AI algorithm monitors the input data and asks the reporter about missing information. This helps the company's staff to reduce manuel workload and error rate.
We have an initial production version of an internal reporting system that allows a whistleblower to submit a report anonymously and have it processed in a comprehensive functional case management tool. The next step on our roadmap is to implement an AI algorithm that helps whistleblowers make high-quality reports and supports employees analyze these cases quickly and effectively for the benefit of the company. This development will start in July 2021.
We currently have a few customers testing our system and their feedback is contributing to the development.
The EU Whistleblower Directive 2019/1937 stipulates that from December 2021, all companies with more than 250 employees in the EU are obliged to provide an internal reporting channel and to comprehensively protect whistleblowers. This additionally applies to public companies.
From December 2023, this will apply to all companies with more than 50 employees. The market therefore comprises more than 100,000 organizations in the DACH region.
Problem or Opportunity
The EU Whistleblower Directive comes into force on December 17, 2021. Fr om December, all companies in the EU with more than 250 employees must have an internal reporting channel. The systems currently available are physical or digital "mailboxes", wh ere the main work is done manually by the processing staff. The result is therefore very dependent on the performance of the people doing the analysis.
We provide a learning system that, based on previous cases, will help company staff analyze incoming reports and then produce more focused solutions for the benefit of the company. Our software will reduce the manual workload and the error rate of the company's employees.
