Automated Controls and Financial Compliance

Body

Businesses must balance the desire to mature their compliance and risk management processes with the pressure to continually and dramatically reduce the related costs of compliance. Automation in the form of properly configuring SAP systems can help resolve this. As shipped, SAP is not fully preconfigured to optimize controls and ensure compliance effectiveness. And too often during implementations, system integrator/implementation teams are not configuring available business process controls properly.

 

We help companies  assess and optimize the configuration of SAP Automated controls, resulting in better and more efficient compliance processes, an optimized and sustainable control environment, enhanced risk management capabilities and an overall financial competitive advantage.

 

Our SAP application controls and compliance consulting teams provide guidance to ensure organizations maximize the use of automated SAP controls and implement efficient compliance management programs.
