Using technology for efficient regulatory compliance
Faced with skyrocketing compliance penalties and hours of staff time, organizations are challenged with how to efficiently cope with a bevy of compliance issues without driving up operational costs.
Continuous transaction monitoring reduces the burden of compliance by automating internal controls testing through independent analysis of your business transactions. The ACL AuditExchange platform allows you to efficiently monitor a wide range of transactions on a regularly scheduled basis to detect exceptions and control weaknesses quickly, and resolve potential regulatory violations before they escalate.
Automated, full-population data analysis powered by a central server also minimizes reliance on IT resources with secure, direct data access. A web-based interface makes it simple for compliance teams to collaborate and share results with other departments for follow-up. Take advantage of powerful dashboarding capabilities to highlight hot spots and get the results of your analysis into the hands of the C-Suite on a timely basis.
Continuous monitoring enables significant cost savings, saving hundreds of hours of manual labor and providing a mechanism to ensure enterprise-wide compliance. Many organizations find that heightened awareness of a monitored compliance environment also results in a decrease in exceptions.
With the ACL Workpapers audit and compliance management system, take advantage of standardized processes to plan, investigate and report to help you get a handle on documentation and cataloguing risks and approaches. The cloud-based system also enables teams to securely collaborate and work with regulators all in one place.
For organizations committed to innovation and efficiency, the use of technology promotes high standards of accountability and fiscal transparency throughout the organization. With the ACL technology suite, organizations can meet regulatory compliance demands and drive down the costs of compliance, with the added benefit of minimizing risk and enhancing operational performance.
