Adapting Internal Controls for Distributed AP Teams

Share

Tuesday, February 1, 2022 | 2:00pm - 3:00pm Eastern Time | Free Webinar

Internal control policies and procedures can be used to prevent fraud, control risk, protect assets, and ensure operational efficiency, and are critical to the short- and long-term success of your business.

Yet, many finance leaders forgo these benefits, deprioritizing important projects for a variety of reasons. Most small and midsize businesses lack the headcount to put strong financial controls and separation of duties in place. Others may be constrained by budget, or simply because it’s a big undertaking and they don’t know where to start. And, with the events of the last two years, teams have been further thrust into distributed work environments, truly testing internal controls, security procedures, and collaboration tools. 

The good news is it’s easier than ever to implement and automate sophisticated internal controls for remote and virtual teams without making a significant investment in headcount or putting effort into extensive planning. Join us to learn about:

  • Internal controls 101
  • The threat landscape and how smart companies are responding
  • 3 critical internal controls to implement now
  • How automation can help you optimize and how to pick the right tool for the job
