CGE facts

The leading provider of
barrier based risk
management solutions


Today's world is increasing in complexity and risks. Because of this, more insight and overview is required with regard to risk factors. And with that more useful information and communication is required for a safe working environment and reliable operation for all stakeholders.

We assist our customers to address three basic questions:
1. Do we understand what can go wrong?
2. Do we know what our systems are to prevent this happening?
3. Do we have information to assure us they are working effectively?

To deal with these questions and with constant change, companies need new and innovative means to manage their risks. Our goal is to offer world class barrier based risk management software solutions to identify and manage operational, tactical and strategic risks - from the work floor to a corporate level and across the enterprise.

We believe that barrier based risk management can contribute to less incidents, but also to better insight and knowledge transfer, improved efficiency, higher returns, cost savings, better quality and even a competitive strategic advantage.


We started with BowtieXP in 2004. Today we offer a suite of standard software products serviced by a team operating from The Netherlands with a global partner network on 7 continents. CGE Risk Management distributes risk management, incident analysis, risk & compliance and operational safety software solutions and services. For our more than 1500 customers in more than 12 industries all over the world we work with the best software solutions via a global network of experienced consultancy partners. We have thorough knowledge of methodologies for training, applying and implementing these solutions in your organization.


As CGE we believe in good methods, excellent software solutions and good services. Our software solutions are all based on risk management and incident analysis methods that have been around for many years and have been accepted by many industries. The visual and qualitative 'bowtie' risk assessment methodology is at the heart of what we offer. The basis of this method is identifying what 'barriers' are important to be managed, in order to control what you do as an organization. Whether this drilling for oil, or transporting people, or providing financial services.

Software Solutions

We keep focus and do what we are good at: making state-of-the-art risk management solutions: BowTieXP, IncidentXP, AuditXP, BowTieServer. In addition to these products, CGE also acts as a distributor of Investigator 3 and BlackBox. For a small number of industry leading clients we also do development projects.


Of course we recognise how important it is that the software is introduced and implemented well. That is why we have a small team of products specialists, consultants and trainers who work with CGE. But that is also the reason why we work with more than 200 consultancy partners from all over the world who deliver consultancy and training. These partners know the local culture, know our clients and have in depth knowledge on the subject matters.
