All information collected via the ExposeIT App is reviewed by an independent law firm, categorized, recorded and stored for further analysis. Evidence and investigative actions are automatically time and date stamped for compliance and reference purposes, ensuring that no complaint is neglected or ignored.
The powerful reporting dashboard alerts the appropriate administrators and quickly turns data into actionable intelligence. Built-in reminders and other workflow tools maximise resource efficiencies and case management to significantly increase the effectiveness of subsequent investigations. The app is available for use by other companies and organisations.
EOH is currently involved in a fundamental transition to a professionally managed corporate structure, simplifying its more than 270 legal entities and aligning them to the strategy of the three distinctive businesses. The new structure will prioritise transparency, ethical leadership, full disclosure, compliance with stringent standards, and active response to any inappropriate practices that might be uncovered.
Fatima Newman, EOH’s Chief Commercial Officer, said: “The EOH Group is committed to completing this reorganisation in a manner that creates best-in-class governance and transparency, while retaining the entrepreneurial and innovative spirit that has made the Group the most successful technology business in Africa.”
The rollout of the ExposeIT App is one of several actions taken by van Coller to strengthen governance at the technology company as it makes this transition: EOH is in the process of aligning its processes with the newly introduced ISO 37001 anti-bribery management systems accreditation; a comprehensive review of EOH’s governance procedures has been undertaken by the University of Stellenbosch’s Centre for Corporate Governance in Africa; group-wide processes now require third-party due diligence on all customer, supplier, and partner on-boarding; and PWC has been appointed as internal auditors.
