This will enhance their ability to provide best in class services to clients and to further develop the software, offering new and exciting solutions and features to clients. ViClarity will continue to be headquartered in Tralee, Co. Kerry with US offices in Boston, Massachusetts and a new office in Des Moines, Iowa where PolicyWorks is located.

PolicyWorks serves nearly 1200 organisations across the US offering compliance and audit consultancy services and brings resources, vision and expertise in helping clients resolve their most challenging compliance issues.

Today the two organisations announce their merging stating “Together Is Stronger” as governance and risk functions continue to cross paths with compliance.

“This brings huge opportunities for the company and the ViClarity team” said ViClarity CEO Ogie Sheehy. “With PolicyWorks, we are joining with an organisation who shares our mission and values as well as our goal to make compliance easier for organisations and gives us the on-the-ground resources to expand our footprint in the US marketplace.”
