Gifts and hospitality registers with Omnitrack

Omnitrack product banner

How does your organisation collect and process all gifts and corporate hospitality that are given to your staff? How do you keep track of all the gifts given to and received by staff to current or potential clients?

Regulators in many industries including legal, pharmaceutical, construction, education and financial services demand that organisations collect, analyse and report on legal and compliance requirements to mitigate bribery risk. Further, professional services firms’ clients often expect their firms to have in place training and registers for Gifts and Hospitality.

Globally, organisations are bound by complex and ever-changing legal and compliance obligations. Without a structured and secure data collection system, organisations waste time and resources ensuring compliance and uncovering business intelligence. Omnitrack is VinciWorks’ solution to collecting, storing and managing data. It allows managers to be instantly notified of any gifts that are given or received, thereby enabling them to make an informed decision on next steps.

GDPR registers with Omnitrack

Omnitrack product banner

How does your organisation collect and process any cyber security or data breaches or concerns as they come up? How does your organisation plan on keeping track of subject access requests or your data protection impact assessment as you prepare for General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) day and beyond?

Under GDPR, coming into force on 25 May, new rights, such as the “right of data portability”, means data subjects can request for their data to be transferred directly to another system for free, as opposed to having to pay for this under the UK Data Protection Act 1998. Further, under GDPR, it will also have to be provided in a way that makes it easy for a computer to read (e.g. via a spreadsheet). Another new right, The right to erasure, allows individuals to request the deletion or removal of their personal data, including information published or processed online.

How can GDPR registers help?

Globally, organisations are bound by complex and ever-changing legal and compliance obligations. Without a structured and secure data collection system, organisations waste time and resources ensuring compliance and uncovering business intelligence. Omnitrack is VinciWorks’ solution to collecting, storing and managing data. It allows managers to be instantly notified of any data breaches or concerns, subject access requests, policy or procedure updates, and any compliance concerns or questions surrounding GDPR.
