VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sept. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ACL today announced that Advanced Disposal, an integrated environmental services company, has chosen ACL™ GRC to meet its expanded internal audit team's risk management, governance, and global Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) compliance needs.

Advanced Disposal provides collection, transfer, disposal and recycling throughout the U.S. and the Bahamas. Prior to selecting ACL GRC, Advanced Disposal's global internal audit team needed a system that could be accessed by geographically-dispersed users. ACL's cloud-based governance, risk management and compliance (GRC) technology provides SOX compliance users with 24/7 access, regardless of their location.

"We looked at various software solutions and felt that ACL GRC was the product that best suited our expanding internal audit and SOX compliance needs," said Kara Meacham, Director of Internal Audit at Advanced Disposal.

ACL GRC improves the efficiency of GRC activities across an organization by facilitating a clear and organized approach to risk assessment, control documentation, and testing. Overall benefits include increased collaboration and visibility among team members, and the ability to create risk scorecards and visual reports for other departments and stakeholders.

"Organizations with geographically distributed teams greatly benefit from the accessibility that cloud-based technology provides," said Dan Zitting, Vice President, Product Management & Design of ACL. "The ability to efficiently manage compliance workflow and track risks, controls and testing in the cloud is a tremendous productivity benefit for companies managing SOX compliance."
