2023 in review – and the exciting road ahead

As the year draws to a close, we want to extend our warmest holiday greetings to you and your teams. It’s been an exciting year, and we’re grateful to have shared it with you.

In this newsletter, we will take a moment to reflect on the past year and look ahead to what 2024 has in store!

Here are some of our key highlights from the past year:

Enhanced Saving and Persisting Filters

Earlier this year, we introduced an enhancement to your experience with our risk management overview, datasheet reports, control management, and user management overview. This update has likely become a seamless part of your daily workflow, saving your filter settings between sessions. You no longer need to start from scratch when filtering data in these overviews. Filters are persisted between sessions, streamlining your work process.

Additionally, we added a convenient ‘Copy Link’ function for these filters. This feature allows you to easily switch between views or share customized views with colleagues, further improving your efficiency and collaboration.

Facelift of the Control Submission Page

As part of our ongoing efforts to enhance user experience, we revamped the control submission page early this year. This update was a strategic step in preparing for the upcoming Reviewer Tasks feature.

Our improvements focused on creating clearer distinctions between different user roles, streamlining the process of submitting controls. We’ve reduced unnecessary scrolling and optimized the layout for a smoother, more efficient workflow.

Additionally, we’ve significantly enhanced the mobile experience, ensuring that submitting controls is convenient and accessible on all devices. This facelift not only simplifies your tasks but also paves the way for smoother integration with the Reviewer Tasks feature.

New Tag Management Module

Earlier in the year, we introduced a significant enhancement to our platform with the launch of a new Tag Management module. This dedicated section is specifically designed for the ease and convenience of managing tag categories and tags.

Extending the Public API and Power BI Connector with Risk Information

Recognizing the growing adoption of the Impero API among our customers for system integration and reporting, we expanded the capabilities of the Impero API by introducing the ability to extract risk directories and risk assessments besides the control information.

Additionally, we extended this functionality to the Impero Power BI Connector. Now, you can report on the full picture of your risk landscape and control operationalizations reflecting the mitigation effectiveness.

What's coming in 2024?

While we celebrate our successes, we’re also gearing up for an even more promising 2024 with these upcoming features:

Reviewer Tasks Feature (Q2 2024)

We’ve revised the launch timeline for this feature to ensure it meets your expectations in functionality and efficiency. This feature will enhance the capabilities of control managers and ensure consistency in the review process.

Work in progress on Reviewer Tasks contributes significantly to the development of the Control Testing module, which will help you identify weaknesses or gaps in internal controls that you manage from Impero.  

Other enhancements

  • Flexible Reminder System: Customize your control schedules with user-friendly reminder settings
  • Individual Deadlines: Separate deadlines for first and second reviewers, enhancing efficiency
  • Visual Scheduling: Intuitive visual cues for better schedule management and error prevention
  • Improved Tag Widget: Multi-tag selection and seamless tag creation directly from the control editing interface

Early Testing & Feedback

We believe your insights are invaluable. Some features will be ready for testing in early 2024, and we will invite you to be part of this journey. Your feedback could shape the final release, ensuring that Impero aligns perfectly with your needs. 

A Heartfelt Thank You

Your trust and partnership have been the cornerstone of our success. As we step into 2024, we’re grateful for the opportunity to continue this journey with you.

Wishing you a joyful holiday season and a prosperous New Year!
