Why choose ACL?
Control oversight & reporting
Oversee the status of all your controls, get details on any aspect of a control with a single click, and stay up to date on control performance.
Easily view and report on your SOX program, with one-click reports, dashboards, and completed reviews. We make it simple to generate reports for management, PMO, or external auditors—by entity, process, control status, or issues.
With ACL’s Citation Mode, easily markup and link to evidence, like policy or procedure manuals, regulations, SLAs/SLSs, and contracts. Track evidence directly from your walkthroughs and control test write-ups—for quick one-click reviewing.
Control testing & PBC requests
Every SOX tester and process or control owner can collaborate within the system to test controls. The system enables efficient response to assigned requests and self-assessments—allowing your team to easily track everything in one place.
To broaden your coverage, increase efficiency, and reduce outsourcing, apply ACL’s robotic process automation to automate control testing to pass or fail controls based on real-time assessments.
Capture issues and delegate to owners to update status and manage action plans directly. Assign actions, track and remediate issues, monitor trends, and report on resolution.
Centralized risk & control library
Struggling with managing thousands of risks and hundreds of controls? Build a master SOX library by process, risk, and control area—for easy roll-out and reuse across any business entity. Built-in change management cascades master control updates throughout your SOX projects.
The platform allows you to rationalize low-risk or non-key controls to avoid unnecessary work, and to harmonize controls that comply with multiple regulations.
Plus, get a real-time assurance report card on your SOX compliance.
“We do everything in ACL now. All our testing documentation is in ACL and we can send review notes and it’s linked to the specific area, the specific control that we have a question on. The status of the work project is a lot easier to track when everything is in a central location and we can just run a report and show what’s done, what’s not done, and where things are at.”
