Like most people visiting this site, I’ve spent a lot of time building spreadsheets to help assess and grade risks for my risk assessment.
And like a lot of people, I’ve found this to be frustrating, inefficient, time consuming and also prone to errors, especially when you start to share the spreadsheet with other people. I’ve always felt that there should be a better way to do this and that software would be the answer.
But years passed and there still wasn’t a good solution. The software was clunky, expensive or just a spreadsheet except hosted online.
So I decided to build my own.
DCDR (decider) is the software that I’ve always wanted. It’s fast, simple, robust and effective. It helps me assess risks quickly and create reports from within the app – no more exporting data between programs. It allows me to collaborate with colleagues, building assessments together in real time and I can set ‘to dos’ and mitigation actions. Plus it helps me gather all my incident data in once place and alert key team members with SMS and email alerts.
Above all it’s something that’s designed to be user-friendly and simple: a tool to support a team, not to create extra work.
