Measure the ROI of Compliance Automation with 3 Calculations

Calculating the ROI of compliance has long been an elusive topic of discussion. How do you quantify the value of a violation not occurring? Or worse, how do you calculate the impact an investigation or fine has on a company’s reputation and bottom line? It’s fundamentally complex in nature to calculate the value of the preventive role compliance has.

However, if you isolate compliance automation, the conversation begins to get a little less muddy. Understanding the ROI of compliance automation, rather than the entire compliance program, allows you to see the impact that technology can have from a financial standpoint and a productivity standpoint.

To address this topic, we called upon none other than Matt Kelly. In the off-chance you are not familiar with Matt Kelly, he is the editor and CEO of and was previously associated with Compliance Week but, most of all, he is a forward-thinking voice in the compliance industry. In hopes of getting one step closer to calculating the ROI of compliance, Kelly authored our latest eBook: How to Measure the ROI of Compliance Automation.
