Kindred bolsters compliance, risk management with SAI

25 April 2017

Kindred Group has moved to streamline its compliance management programme and licensing arrangements through a new partnership with SAI Global.

Under the deal, Kindred will now integrate SAI’s ‘Compliance 360’ GRC software, which SAI said will enable the gaming company to reorganise its management of licensing obligations, product, processes and third-party supplier relationships.

In addition, SAI said the software’s auditing functions will provide Kindred with the ability to extend “greater transparency” of its operations to regulators and governing bodies.

Kindred’s operations span more than 100 countries in 20 different languages.

“SAI Global’s GRC software provides us with the accuracy and certainty we need to meet our complex, multi-jurisdictional regulatory obligations; it also provides us with greater clarity and deeper insight into the running of our business,” group regulatory officer re-regulated markets at Kindred, Vineet Patel, said.

“With SAI Global’s support and software, we’ve managed to turn our compliance function in to a value creator rather than a cost centre.”

Jan Kruger, executive vice-president of risk at SAI, added: “We believe our GRC software, Compliance 360, is the best available risk management product for customers in the online gambling sector.

“It provides operators, such as Kindred Group, with one integrated platform from which to manage their risk and compliance requirements, including licences, products, processes, controls and third parties across multiple jurisdictions.”
