Approva® Corporation (http://www.approva.net/), the leading provider of continuous controls monitoring software, today announced that it has been chosen by AlwaysOn as one of the OnDC Top 100 Winners. Inclusion in the OnDC 100 signifies major developments in the creation of new business opportunities that contribute to the renewed and continued prosperity of our country. Approva was specially selected by the AlwaysOn editorial team and industry experts spanning the globe based on a set of five criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value, and media buzz.
“It’s no secret that technology and innovation are vital to bringing our country out of economic recession and transforming important sectors like energy and healthcare,” said Tony Perkins, founder and CEO of AlwaysOn. “We congratulate the OnDC 100 for their success in introducing new tools, services, and systems to address the nation’s top priorities.”
Approva’s continuous controls monitoring applications enable companies to automatically identify and respond to business exceptions that impact their performance. Using Approva, organizations are able to identify and prevent inappropriate payments, reduce fraud, automate compliance obligations and flag accounting errors when they occur to ensure they do not impact financial statements.
Approva and the OnDC Top 100 Companies will be honored at AlwaysOn’s OnDC event on October 19th-21st at the Four Seasons Hotel in Washington DC. This two-and-a-half-day executive event features CEO presentations and high-level debates on sectors most impacted by the federal government including greentech, on-demand computing and IT security, education, and the life sciences.
“Approva is pleased to be selected by AlwaysOn for this prestigious honor,” John Becker, Approva’s chief executive officer. “Some of the largest federal, state & local government agencies rely on Approva to ensure that they are effectively managing the public funds taxpayers have entrusted them with and to minimize exceptions and anomalies in their financial processes that distract them from fulfilling their missions.”
