Among the new technologies that promise to drive cost savings and improve business efficiency and effectiveness, robotic process automation (RPA) has captured the attention of organizations. Protiviti assembled an RPA assessment team that included both technical resources and members of the audit and SOX compliance teams, allowing it to drive the right synergies and efficiencies during the assessment.
Atlassian partnered with Protiviti to design and evaluate controls across the company’s products and internal systems. Key success factors in Atlassian’s journey were their commitment to quality control without compromising agility and their openness to collaboration and change. That, combined with Protiviti’s IT risk, compliance and controls experience, and a mutual commitment to designing best-in-class controls for a DevOps world, delivered a resounding success.
Even under normal conditions, creating a global supply chain capability from scratch is a complex and grueling endeavor. When a large U.S. retailer made a strategic decision to develop this ability — which included securing new overseas suppliers for tens of thousands of products, satisfying all customs requirements and creating a nationwide distribution capability — in less than six months, the clock began to tick on a monumental challenge. For help with this undertaking, the company partnered with Protiviti. Factors in this selection included Protiviti’s demonstrated past success with similar engagements, domain expertise, and reputation for a hands-on approach to problem-solving and working collaboratively with client teams to make change happen. While others estimated a timeline of at least 18 months, and probably closer to two years, Protiviti offered a different take: It can be done.
During a busy stretch of strong growth driven largely by acquisitions, the chief financial officer (CFO) of a Fortune 500 consumer products company paused to take a look at back-office processes — specifically in the payroll department. Impressed by Protiviti’s track record with financial performance improvement initiatives, the finance chief enlisted a Protiviti team to conduct an in-depth assessment of the human resources and compensation department.
