AUTOMATED SOX COMPLIANCE

Take Control Where It Counts

Sarbanes Oxley compliance is a chaotic, consistent strain on enterprise resources. While internal costs and effort show no sign of decreasing, external compliance costs are on the rise.

SOX compliance audits continue to grow more and more complex.

Imagine how it would feel if your auditing process could be simplified with an efficient, transparent, predicable solution.

It’s possible.

Simplify SOX Compliance

THE SOX COMPLIANCE DILEMMA
Decentralized Process. Infinite Problems.

SOX Compliance strains enterprise resources and increases risk due to the need for project progression visibility, cross-functionality, significant resource dedication, and internal audit crowd-out.

 

Together, this translates into risks of failure at each SOX program stage gate.

Documentation

 

SOX requirements are always changing, requiring manual updates of information in multiple places.

 

High user volume increases the incidence of errors, while version control and version history tracking become a nightmare.

Testing

 

With SOX requirements constantly changing, the PCAOB is constantly updating their focus. Results of walkthrough tests may require documentation reworks and test redesigns.

 

Version control continues to be a significant issue, in addition to lack of adequate evidence of control execution, client delays, cost overruns, missed internal deadlines, and potential delays.

Deficiency Remediation

 

Accountability becomes an issue, as does gaining and maintaining management consensus as to a remediation plan and timing completion.

 

While struggling to provide transparency for external auditors, miscommunications naturally run rampant between external and internal auditors, management, and control owners.

Control Execution

 

As resources become strained control executors struggle to know what they are supposed to measure.

 

Uncertainty grows around precision of execution, compounded by a lack of knowledge regarding the acceptable standard of documentation, while pressure from all sides muddies the purpose of the control.
