Strengthen Internal Controls, Certify Financial Statements with Confidence

However, if you are using manual processes to manage internal control programs, it can be challenging to ensure these requirements are adequately met. Watch this webinar recording to learn more.
Benefits of Account Certification
Account Certification provides users with a host of benefits:
- Assignment of ownership of reconciliation and certification activities: Facilitates automated review, task completion and digital sign-off from the business unit all the way up to the certifying officer
- Better control of your financial close schedule: Monitors key completion dates defined for the financial close process, proactively sends notices to responsible parties, ultimately ensuring all accounts are completed and certified before the books are closed
- Mitigation of operational risk by focusing staff on higher risk accounts: Allows you to define low risk accounts eligible for unattended "Automatic Certification" when certain balance and activity requirements are detected
- Reducing the cost of compliance: Provides direct account auditor access to certification data and associated processes, the ultimate sign that your controls are tight, processes are effective, and full transparency is encouraged as a matter of internal and external policy
