Fraud, waste and abuse are invisible.

Get Inspired - 100s of Fraud Tests

Fraud is happening at your organization, you just can’t see it yet.

We hate to tell you this, but you have a fraud problem. Occupational fraud hides in nooks and crannies, and pleading ignorance using only spreadsheets won’t get sympathy from regulators. It’s well-known that fraud eats 5% of your revenue…and much more through the undermining of performance, integrity and reputation.
Companies and government agencies turn to ACL for a 360° anti-fraud solution combining prevention and detection to shake down suspicious activities. Find patterns and anomalies that ERP controls miss. Combine pre-approval controls with detective controls to see if anything slipped through the system. Test controls against common frameworks and regulatory requirements. The ACL platform provides a lean workflow to automate the assignment, review, remediation of red flags—and track investigation status—to strengthen performance and reduce fraud, waste and abuse.
