Our Product – Lighthouse

Lighthouse by Torque Software is a commercial-off-the-shelf software system that works alongside your Enterprise systems to streamline governance, risk and compliance (GRC) processes. Lighthouse provides a single source of truth and a complete workflow management system, allowing organisations to replace spreadsheets with a simple cloud-based tool. By providing a centralised platform, Lighthouse enables organisations to effectively manage, track and report on all GRC activities and data, ultimately helping them improve their compliance posture.
