What is risk management?

“If you give people tools, [and they use] their natural ability and their curiosity, they will develop
things in ways that will surprise you very much beyond what you might have expected.”
Bill Gates ( Founder of Microsoft)

    Complementing the Risk Management Process

    At BPC Canada we don’t just sell risk management software.

    We have been providing the full range of risk management services to Australian Universities for over 10 years. Consequently, our software has evolved specifically and practically to support those services.

    In fact, our Risk Management software was largely developed with a leading Australian University (Deakin). The implementation of risk management within Deakin University won a Vice-Chancellor’s award for outstanding achievement.
