In addition to our internal audit services, we provide a number of focused process and control solutions to help you resolve a wide range of organizational and operational challenges. These include:

SAP Processes and Controls

Systems Applications Products (SAP) software integrates your data and systems to improve visibility and productivity. However, more often than not organizations fail to implement desired system capabilities and make costly errors.

We bring extensive experience and a thorough understanding of SAP’s capabilities, providing SAP consulting services in six key areas:

Agreed-Upon Procedures

We can serve as an independent practitioner to perform agreed-upon procedures established by two parties. We have extensive experience conducting these engagements, working proactively to gain a set of clear, precise procedures that address the nature, timing, and extent of the work to be done. Such planning helps avoid ambiguity later on that would inhibit achievement of your desired outcomes.

We can provide a report containing results that are clear and easily used by the specified parties to achieve validation of compliance and resolution of concerns. We have a diverse range of in-house expertise, allowing us to quickly assemble a project team capable of addressing unique technical and industry-specific matters.

We use interviews, surveys, and focus groups to analyze your existing strategies, refine your fraud-risk profile, and establish the right protocols to avoid the types of problems your business is most susceptible to.

Data Analysis

We can uncover potentially fraudulent behavior with analytical tools that reveal inconsistencies in data. To do this, we employ both custom-made and industry-leading tools, including ACL software that analyzes and cross-references large amounts of data from disparate sources.
