AP Risk & Internal Controls

Your Accounts Payable (AP) is more or less sound when you can pay the bills in a timely manner. Inefficiencies in your AP process can lead to payment delays and soured vendor relationships. Erroneous or fraudulent transactions can lead to cash leakage. The best way to mitigate risk and waste is greater visibility into your AP process, which produces large volumes of data. Leverage data analytics to drive better AP outcomes.

Understand Risks with Audit Analytics

Enterprise Resource Planning systems capture massive amounts of data within your municipality in real time. Automating your ERP data (e.g. data analytics) will allow you to quickly identify and understand risks occurring in your organization and use it to make changes and adjustments for an optimized process and improved performance.

Data analytics are written to track transactions as they move through the ERP workflow. Each analytic is asking a question of transaction. If the transaction meets the criteria, the analytic will flag the transaction. A single transaction could be flagged by multiple analytics.
