Risk Management comes to iPad: Simple Genius

in Business (E)

[prMac.com] Dublin, Ohio - FourthFrame Technologies has announced a new iPad app for managing project risk: SG Risk Log. SG Risk Log expands the Simple Genius Apps suite to the critical domain of risk management. With a design based on the popular app SG Project (formerly Project Pad), SG Risk Log is likely to be met with a warm welcome from savvy business managers who understand risk management as a tool for success.

Risk Management has come to iPad. "Risk Management is a critical function for the success of projects, and we've introduced the first and only risk management app available for the iPad today," said Ty Jacobs of FourthFrame Technologies, designer of SG Risk Log. "For those project managers who have learned the value of disciplined risk management through hard knocks and also take advantage of the mobility offered by the iPad, this app is the answer."

SG Risk Log helps project managers maintain a list of project risks with due dates, specific owners, a mitigation strategy, and a history of notes. The manager can set the Likelihood that each risk will occur and the Severity to the project, should it occur. SG Risk Log then calculates a Rating score for each risk and highlights medium and severe risks. A table view allows sorting by Rating, Owner, or Due Date. A PDF file of risks can be created and emailed directly from within the app - a simple way to remind the risk owners of their responsibilities.

SG Risk Log has a look-and-feel similar to FourthFrame's popular apps SG Project (for project scheduling) and SG Action Log (for action item management), lessening the learning curve for users of the suite. The Simple Genius Apps suite has over 3500 customers worldwide, and FourthFrame is committed to continue growing and improving the suite, with an emphasis on listening to customer feedback. And that's great news for project managers on the move.
