Report It Now to launch Ethical Reporting Platform in Australia Featured

By Report It Now

The whistleblower tech company will supply ethics management SaaS solution EthicsPro to Australian enterprises

Report It Now™, a global provider of ethical reporting services, today announced the national launch of its EthicsPro® ethics software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform in Australia. The platform is designed to support organisations of all sizes to comply with the complex regulatory landscape surrounding whistleblowing and ethical conduct.

Changes to state whistleblowing laws in Australia place greater responsibility on business leaders to maintain safe environments and support employees looking to anonymously report wrongdoing. The EthicsPro enterprise case management system directly addresses this need by providing a comprehensive multi-channel platform for ethical reporting.

“With the Australian launch of Report It Now AU and the EthicsPro® platform, businesses in Australia will be equipped to manage ethical reporting obligations properly,” said Craig McFarlane, director of Report It Now.

“We’re helping Australian organisations to protect themselves by provisioning compliant and effective anonymous whistleblowing channels, delivering ongoing ethical training for staff, and creating meaningful codes of ethics that genuinely help them foster a culture of accountability.”

“Recent changes to state whistleblowing laws place the onus on leaders to maintain safe environments and support employees reporting wrongdoing, creating a clear need for enterprise-level ethical systems and support.”

A recent survey conducted by the Australia Institute found that “an overwhelming majority of Australians (84%) support stronger legal protection for whistleblowers”1.

And incident reports are increasing. The number of whistleblower reports submitted to ASIC surged by 194% from FY2019 to FY2021, from 278 to 817 twelve months later2.

Report It Now's flagship EthicsPro® product provides organisations with a complete solution for ethical reporting. It offers confidential 24/7 hotlines where employees can anonymously report workplace misconduct and receive one-on-one support from trained staff. The platform automates case management, ensuring discreet handling of reports by dedicated teams during investigations. It also provides automated benchmarking, analytics, and seamless access across mobile, desktop, and tablet devices.

“The launch of Report It Now™ and the EthicsPro® platform in Australia addresses a critical need for organisations looking to effectively manage ethical reporting, comply with regulations, mitigate risks, and foster open, honest workplaces,” says Greg Dunn, fellow director at Report It Now™.

“Research shows that third-party reporting systems significantly reduce organisational risk and losses from fraud, so embracing transparency and accountability at a company-wide level just makes sense.”

According to the 2020 Report to the Nations by the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners, implementing an independent ethics reporting system like EthicsPro can reduce fraud losses by approximately 50 per cent3.

Founded in 2007, Report It Now™ has helped organisations across the globe cultivate open, honest workplaces free from bullying, fraud and harassment. To learn more about how RIN AU and EthicsPro® can support ethical behaviour in the workplace, contact us for a free, confidential assessment.
