Enhancing RightAngle's Functionality: Unlocking Customizations

RightAngle utilizes standard risk management reports including default Mark-to-Market, risk exposure, and current exposure reports. These reports offer limited customization options resulting in a generalized perspective of risk exposures.

Furthermore, the prevailing approach to risk analysis and report interpretation heavily relies on manual efforts by risk analysts. Consequently, potential drawbacks arise, including errors in analysis, delays in identifying risks or not identifying relevant risks, and hindered decision-making due to the lag in obtaining and processing information. These limitations collectively emphasize the need for enhanced customization and automation capabilities within the RightAngle system.
