Financial Controls AI


Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the simulation of human intelligence by computer systems; it can do a variety of things, including information gathering, pattern recognition, logical reasoning, and drawing conclusions. This technology is already being leveraged by thousands of organizations around the world to drive business process improvements, automate manual tasks, and gain actionable insights from vast amounts of data. For office of finance’s Record to Report process specifically, the value of AI grows significantly when it becomes Financial Controls AI (FC AI).

Trintech has developed FC AI as part the Cadency platform, and it’s used to quantitatively evaluate risk across various elements of the Record to Report process as well as automate workflows based on this risk profile, all while identifying high-risk items for human review. FC AI can also analyze your compliance framework and recommend control enhancements using historical and predictive analysis. It’s an amazing technology that greatly reduces financial risk from multiple angles, saves you time and resources, and ultimately helps your office of finance transform its operations.

AI technology can be used to drive preventative controls to reduce overall risk in the close process while driving efficiencies and detective controls to ensure risky transactions do not slip through the cracks. Benefits of utilizing AI include increased speed, reduction of manual effort, and increased accuracy.
