Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, Inc. Selects HighBond by Galvanize

Franchise hotel leader to standardize GRC programs, data automation strategy on the HighBond platform

Vancouver, Canada, May 15, 2019Galvanize, the global leader in SaaS GRC software, today announced that Wyndham Hotels & Resorts Inc., the world’s largest franchise hotel company, has selected Galvanize’s integrated HighBond platform to standardize enterprise risk management, SOX, IT risk, assurance, and advisory projects.

“We identified an opportunity for technology to streamline and accelerate the work we do around monitoring our highest-risk corporate processes,” said Jacqueline Luu, Vice President & Chief Audit Executive at Wyndham Destinations. “The HighBond platform gives us a single, unified version of the truth for all of our compliance, risk management, assurance, and advisory activities. Add to that the data analytics capability, and it makes our vision for real-time assurance achievable. We knew from our first meeting with the Galvanize team that this was the right choice. Not only was the team knowledgeable and supportive, but the platform delivers a unique blend of software our team will actually enjoy using and built-in best practices that will help guide us toward success.”

The Wyndham team’s legacy GRC technology had become outdated, and the team found that support for those tools was not sufficient to meet their objectives. With an over-arching goal of centralizing several processes—including time-intensive compliance and strategic risk management projects—in a single GRC platform, the team reviewed available technology. The HighBond platform by Galvanize emerged as the obvious choice.

“I am delighted to welcome the Wyndham team into the global Galvanize customer community and look forward to catching up in person at Galvanize Summit.” Added Dan Zitting, Chief Customer Experience Officer at Galvanize. “Whether the team is assessing risk, measuring controls, monitoring compliance, managing vulnerabilities, or expanding assurance coverage, HighBond will inspire executive confidence by bonding people, teams, and processes to create a layer of visibility and protection that ensures their organization more reliably reaches its goals.”

The HighBond platform offers customers an out-of-the-box solution for common GRC program needs, including third-party risk management, IT risk and compliance, audit management, and internal controls. It provides a clear, simple path for expanding the platform into new use cases as organizations grow toward a fully mature, integrated GRC program. The platform is fundamentally less costly to own, easier to deploy, faster to adopt for entire teams, and much more powerful in driving actionable, executive risk insights thanks to its intuitive design, built-in best practices, and completely unique robotic process automation capabilities.
