Regulation continues to put demands on finance and operations departments. Our robust financial control system, Frontier Reconciliation from Fiserv, can help you increase efficiency and accuracy, mitigate risk and meet regulations.

 

Overview

What is a Financial Control System?

Robust financial controls ensure transaction and data integrity, and will tighten your processes so that nothing falls through the cracks. The right financial control system includes transaction matching and audit trail, exception management, reconciliation, account certification, and performance management and reporting. These capabilities support the three pillars of any financial or operational transformation:

Driving increased operational efficiency: The need for cost reduction and increased profitability means that speed and standardization of transaction processing, along with accurate and timely financial reporting, are driving organizations to conduct a continuous program of process improvement to be able to demonstrate ongoing efficiencies.

Optimizing operational risk: Any organization must accommodate some risk within their operations to maximize performance and attain profitability. At the same time, loss exposure is expected to be minimized. Our financial control system can help mitigate and understand risk through rules-driven identification and escalation paths coupled with detailed analysis of exposure.

Meeting mandates for increased compliance and control: Our approach is to integrate compliance capabilities and procedures into our solutions to take automation beyond operations and mitigate compliance risk.
