Why
Renforce?

Time and Cost

In our research, we learned that every FSI in Australia was running up to 3 compliance programs with an average program length of 6-12 months, with an average starting cost per program of 2.8 Million AUD*. Current processes of achieving regulatory compliance are too long, where the regulations become redundant or updated by the end of implementation, resulting in a continuous loop of unfinished regulatory compliance. The cost of maintaining, implementing and remediating this continuous loop of unfinished regulatory compliance is expensive due to the costs of contingent workforces, consulting, increasing stacks of technologies implemented to help and the unplanned expenses of programs not meeting their objectives.

Manualism

The majority of current regulatory compliance isn't performed in real-time; it's done by stitching manual QA, data gathering, reporting and translating from process/business rules. Manualism often leads to inaccurate, unreliable and competing compliance information, which results in breach

Remediative and Reactive

The inability to track and trace compliance requirements in real-time results in a continuous loop of fixing lagged breaches in reactive projects or collectively in large remediation programs. The current nature of managing compliance is too challenging to be proactively compliant.

Too Many Unnecessary Technologies

The remediative, reactive, manual, time-consuming, and costly nature of compliance has resulted in a new generation of technologies that do the same thing, deeming these useless. While added into the organisation with the right intentions, our research has shown that organisations use up to 8 different technologies to monitor and regulate compliance status that often mistranslates the intention. In turn, the compliance process becomes more difficult and complicated without any statistical or logical reason. Now experts often leave these technologies behind and perform compliance activities on spreadsheets as a last resort.

The Renforce
Capability

At The Start Smart our capabilities combine proprietary human competencies and technology solutions as a singular service for organisations over the need for multiple resources, multiple solutions and multiple technologies. The Start Smart capabilities are single solutions to simplify broad problems and co-execute functional requirements.

How Renforce Works

Our philosophy of human-augmented technology means that our regulatory, data and solution experts work together seamlessly to ensure total compliance with all industry regulations.

Renforce itself is not a part of the software stack of the organisation. Instead, it sits on top of the existing data feed of the organisation generated by the existing software solutions to collectively drive regulatory compliance, predict and prevent regulatory breaches, and allow a system of work where compliance decision is backed by factual data and allows comprehensive reporting.

What the Renforce capability includes

RegExperts

Proactive humans that provide ongoing expertise, monitoring and research.

The solution is backed by humans, not as a software/tech support role but as regulatory support on an ongoing basis. Our regulatory experts continuously research upcoming regulations and solve the challenges of compliance early - to seamlessly onboard the regulations into the Renforce ecosystem. RegExperts provides ongoing and personalised regulatory support and solutions that blend people, processes, and technology to improve the organisations' compliance status proactively.

RegTech

Real-time regulatory compliance management in one system.

The proprietary regulatory technology allows our partners to continuously view and understand their compliance status, abilities and effort required to govern a cohesive risk culture for regulatory compliance. Using a 'less is more' approach, the user experience of Renforce makes compliance simple and uncluttered.

AVA RegAI

Continuous predictions, guides compliance efforts and provides deeper insights.

Renforce's built-in AI learns and predicts compliance status. The key output of Renforce is real-time data-based compliance status reporting that is factual and unconstrained by current technology and process.

Real-time data generated by the systems of the organisation is analysed using machine learning, allowing the AI to make real-time suggestions to stay compliant while helping the organisation build its deep learning module within Renforce.

Renforce is designed to seamlessly integrate with the organisation's technology using APIs and provide real-time output. Renforce ingests and analyses data in real-time. This results in guided and factual reporting based on the information generated with every relevant transaction. The Renforce AI predicts, creates and monitors actions to proactively help our partners identify upcoming or existing compliance breaches- providing detailed information about when, where, and how obligations are not being met.

The Inner Workings of the Renforce Capability

Behavioural Design

Utilising our understanding of industry regulations and using it to translate regulatory requirements into human processes within organisations. This is done in the form of process design, experience design, UX and UI design

Data-Driven

Our technology integrates as a layer on top of the existing enterprise technology. It uses the data feed from user interactions to create a single source of compliance status information within the Renforce regulatory ecosystem providing an overview of the entire organisation.

Data Story

Experts design and unlock the functional flow within an organisation, tying together the object and performance indicators and stakeholders. Actionable data and regulations are leveraged to create data-based processes. This allows them to showcase not just the theoretical, qualitative processes defined by business rules but also the actual data-driven processes of the organisation.

Machine Learning

The technology monitors and learns from the organisation's user interactions, breach patterns, process confirmation, data patterns, accountability structures, and adherence. It ensures that the data is accurately correlated with the business processes.

Delivery and Resolution

Using a combination of deep-dive research and business architecture, we identify why compliance issues are happening or will happen, as reported by the technology, and trace them back to the affected business units. With the help of business process modeling backed by data, it showcases the organisation's alignment, the factual status of processes and compliance, and the internal operations. Renforce actively prevents the organisation from breaching regulations by preemptively suggesting changes before they occur. If breaches have already occurred, the team will ensure compliance by performing business policy and process fixes and providing actionable guides on how breaches can be avoided in the future.

Deep Learning

Deep learning understands the organisation's behaviour and tests it against the knowledge of business processes, patterns, and behaviours gained by machine learning. Renforce uses its deep learning modules to predict regulatory breaches and overtime proactively shares guidance on breach prevention and fixing breaches they occur.These compliance predictions prevent potential breaches by preemptively informing obligation owners, avoiding expensive remediations, and allowing for effective compliance decisions.

Our
Philosophy

Open Regulation™ is here

Open Regulation™ is a proprietary concept created by The Start Smart as part of our Renforce capability and our commitment to solving the immediate challenges of regulatory compliance.

Open Regulation™ will enable a collaborative approach to regulation for all three major key players within an industry: regulators, providers and partners, allowing them to regulate and hold each other accountable through a singular future-ready platform.

Human Augmented

Renforce is more than just software; it's a revolutionary solution that combines human augmentation and artificial intelligence. Our philosophy of human-augmented technology means that our regulatory, data and solution experts work together seamlessly to ensure total compliance with all industry regulations.

No More Remediations

Renforce allows organisations to leave behind time-consuming remediations and shift effort to being proactive - through a data-driven approach where actions are continuously monitored against regulations - preventing breaches even before they occur.

We want our partners to achieve a state of no more remediations in the organisational operations.
