Thomson Reuters and Q-Project to Offer Solutions Specific to Benelux and French Speaking Markets

BRUSSELS, BELGIUM--(Marketwire - Aug 31, 2012) - Thomson Reuters, the world's leading source of intelligent information for businesses and professionals, today announced that it has entered into a solutions partner agreement with Q-Project, a Belgium-based management consulting firm, to help local and French speaking markets address internal audit and governance, risk and compliance issues.

Increased regulatory scrutiny, constrained budgets and expanding risk assessment responsibilities are affecting firms globally, particularly across their audit departments. Firms must increasingly leverage the latest technology to optimize their audit capabilities and reduce the cost and time associated with audit processes. This partnership alliance will combine Q-Project's expertise in consulting and systems integration in markets such as Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxembourg, France, Switzerland and North, West and Central Africa with the audit, risk management and compliance-related software available via the Thomson Reuters Accelus suite of products.

"This alliance combines globally reaching governance, risk management and compliance technology assets and delivery with localized best practices and market awareness," said Michael C.A. Dempsey, senior director global partner strategy of Governance, Risk & Compliance, Thomson Reuters. "It demonstrates our commitment to bringing leading internal audit and integrated GRC solutions to the global community as well as serving our clients in markets where local presence, language, culture and regulatory expertise are crucial in helping them tackle an increasingly complex environment."

"Working with Thomson Reuters will ensure that firms have access to the best in class integrated GRC and internal audit solutions, as well as leading training, consulting and project management capabilities," said Fred Deliën, managing director, Q-Project. "Organizations are looking to work smarter and more efficiently, so there is a need for automated and integrated technology solutions that allow firms to remain agile in times of shifting business requirements. The combination of Q-Project and Thomson Reuters capabilities will help firms rise to their internal audit and governance, risk management and compliance challenges moving forward."

Through the Thomson Reuters Accelus suite of solutions, the Governance, Risk and Compliance business dynamically connects business transactions, strategy and operations to the ever-changing regulatory environment, enabling firms to manage business risk.
