This is a Core member service which supports all Level II and Level III Members.

Business Executives/Owners: Benchmark your actual results and forecasts/budgets against industry standards and coach with your executive team to optimize profit, equity and cash flow and beat your competition.
Accountants and Consultants: Benchmark your clients’ actual results and forecasts against industry standards in 51 Key Performance Indicators to guide your clients into the top 10%, while attracting more clients, more easily, to maximize your consulting income!
Entrepreneurs and New Business Startups:  Validate business plan pro-forma against actual industry data, and create documentation for potential investors, lenders, and partners.
Business Brokers/Valuation Consultants: Validate business valuation against industry data.
The most important aspect of this Extended member service is that this application can be used by individuals (Level II and Level III Members or alternatively, Member firms) without needing to have all your other industry peers from your Industry Cluster signed up and engaged to leverage BreakPoint Financial!
KPI Industry Benchmarking
BreakPoint KPI™ is our second benchmarking platform which provides Members with custom Key Performance Indicator (KPI) industry benchmarking where peer assessment information is sent to Members of an industry cluster in near real-time. Our Governance Execution Framework (GEF) is designed to take advantage of BreakPoint KPI's enterprise-class performance and is ideal for deploying GRC Data Lakes of federated GRC data. Note that BreakPoint KPI is an Exterded member service which is positioned for use by an entire Industry Cluster, SIG or, alternatively, Member firms.
Cyber security teams today typically use multiple endpoint solutions to protect their enterprises from common cyber threats. Each tool generates alerts based on a particular kind of suspicious activity. But none of these tools is equipped to detect sophisticated, adaptive attacks—the kind of attacks that target the world's largest and most critical institutions on a daily basis. Now you can revolutionize your cyber security operations and protect your enterprise. Here are the other GRC application areas that you may want to explore:
Anti-fraud, Crisis response, Defense, Cyber Security, Defense, Insider Threat, Intelligence, Legal intelligence, Law enforcement, and your own custom applications.

Regulatory Compliance Mapping
& GRC Configuration management
We provide our all our Members and Member firms with a unique Core Service as well as education and training for regulatory compliance mapping as well as the complete range of GRC Configuration Management process management understanding.

By sorting and extracting the most up-to-date regulations and standards, you can quickly figure out which controls you need to implement, and understand how they overlap with your existing internal controls. Members can also tap into our Compliance Dictionary or take advantage of our API to integrate CCH into other systems. Please note: we provide the most aggressive pricing discounts if your firm would like to license any of the UCF applications from us on an annual, recurring basis. You can save hundreds of dollars. Just contact us at or visit our Solutions Lab found under Member Services above.

    Accenture on Digital Shoring (aka Industry Clustering)
    Review Details:

    “Business leaders need to promote a culture that is conducive to collaboration. They must invest both in available digital tools and in their employees’ digital networking skills. They also have to find ways to systematically tap into the knowledge that employees bring from their communities, whether they are digitally enhanced physical clusters or global digital archipelagoes.

    Digital shoring gives companies new and better ways to pursue collaborative innovation. Business leaders that understand and actively tap into this potential can accelerate the path to innovation.”
