Implement your Management System with Confidence 

Octane Management System Assessment Screen


Your management system collects large amounts of information about your business across multiple groups, locations, and time periods. Your ability to properly capture, organize and use this data is critical to success.

Octane is a fit-for-purpose Management System tool that will accelerate results and improve performance of your Management system by:

  • Engaging employees and leaders, and keeping them informed

  • Driving discipline, consistency and accountability

  • Ensuring data is secure, reliable and ready when you need it

  • Reporting real-time risk reduction and performance improvement



More Collaborative and Efficient Assessments

  • Enable a consistent assessment process using standardized requirements, guidance text, references and mappings to relevant regulations and standards
  • Simplify the facilitation of your assessment with an easy to use, intuitive interface that you can have on-screen for everyone to see
  • Enable individual groups in different locations to conduct their own assessments, with all data instantaneously captured in one system
  • Instant results and reporting through on-screen dashboard and reports, or downloadable at the click of a button
  • Track assessment completion and follow-up in real time from your corporate location
  • Immediately identify, prioritize and address critical risks and gaps found during assessments

Octane Assessment Results Dashboard

Prove Compliance to Regulations and Standards

  • Map regulations and standards to your Management System requirements to show what your system covers
  • Review and assess against those additional requirements while conducting regular Management System assessments
  • Create reports that show how your Management System covers other requirements

  • Your data is captured, stored and backed up in your own isolated and secure repository using the latest enterprise data security and privacy technology, therefore protecting your highly sensitive corporate information
  • Eliminate the risk of losing spreadsheets and emails, or corrupting your data through mishandling or accidental changes 
  • Control who can access data and reports through robust permissions and system controls, and view activity logs of users if needed

"Eighty-five percent of the reasons for failure are deficiencies in the systems and processes rather than the employee. The role of management is to change the process rather than badgering individuals to do better."

W. Edwards Deming
A recognized founder of Management System thinking
