A commissioned study conducted by Forrester

Forrester Total Economic Impact of the ACL SOX Compliance Program

A Total Economic Impact TM (TEI) study conducted by Forrester Consulting on behalf of ACL uncovers the potential ROI for an ACL customer performing SOX audits and reviews.

When evaluating the impact and value a new piece of technology will have on your business, one of the easiest questions to ask, yet difficult to answer succinctly, is “what’s the return on investment?” This is why we commissioned Forrester Consulting to take a deep-dive into the real impact of the ACL platform on a manufacturing customer who uses ACL to help meet Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) requirements. This study aims to provide readers with a framework to evaluate the potential financial impact of the ACL platform by improving processes in many departments—including, audit, finance, and IT; to reduce time spent by employees in supporting review SOX compliance and reporting requests and improve business visibility for strategic decision making.
