Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) November 16, 2005
Real-time transaction inspection delivers bottom-line results by eliminating errors in financial processes and automating controls for Sarbanes-Oxley compliance, according to the Compliance Matrix Group’s independent analysis of Fortune 500 companies that have deployed continuous monitoring solutions from Oversight Systems Inc.
Compliance Matrix, a consulting group to major corporations for Sarbanes-Oxley and other regulatory compliance efforts, published the report today, which can be downloaded at http://www.oversightsystems.com/casestudy.
"As executives struggle with the cost of compliance, they should evaluate IT solutions for real-time transaction inspection, which can automate compliance while creating business value," said Matthew Kovar, CFA, SOX practice director and principal for the Compliance Matrix Group. "Our detailed research illustrates that the average Fortune 500 Company can save between 75-95 percent in their SOX monitoring costs by replacing manual controls with automated controls. Additional analysis of business value creation showed the annual benefit to one customer quickly approaches $4 million for a single instance of the Oversight solution for real-time transaction inspection."
Oversight Systems, the leading provider of independent, continuous monitoring solutions for real-time transaction inspection, commissioned this independent report, which further quantifies the conclusions of other independent research firms.
In a September 2005 report entitled "Profiles in Compliance," AMR Research wrote that Oversight Systems’ real-time transaction inspection "is definitely in line with the need to reduce the cost of compliance by making it repeatable, sustainable, and automated." The AMR Research report went on to state: "Oversight Systems’s products should be evaluated by companies that are planning to automate testing of controls for compliance. The ancillary benefits of early error detection and quick resolution should pay for this system easily."
The Compliance Matrix study quantifies the benefits of implementing a real-time transaction inspection solution and describes how Oversight System creates business value within the procure-to-pay and order-to-cash processes by eliminating mistakes and errors, such as improper payments, un-reconciled accounts for un-vouchered receipts, invoice errors, and unused discounts and credits.
"These independent studies demonstrate the value-creating benefits of Oversight’s real-time transaction inspection," said Patrick Taylor, CEO of Oversight Systems. "Our Fortune 500 customers can confidently say that Oversight drives quality through their financial processes and reduces both their compliance and operation costs."
