5 Steps to Effective Enterprise Risk Management

Enabling the Enterprise with Financial Close Automation

How automation enables a strategic and proactive financial risk management process

Financial risk is a well-known threat that CFOs factor into their decision making and trying to mitigate that risk through a manual approach of emails, spreadsheets and binders is an ineffective defense. CFOs need to proactively combat risk through strategic initiatives that a manual approach to finance processes cannot support due to inherent issues, including:

  • Lack of visibility and standardization
  • Decreased transparency
  • Increased time delays
  • Insufficient corporate compliance framework

For today’s enterprises, there continues to be a steady uptick in instances of financial risk that can impact both companies and their customers. To combat the most visible risk of fraud, regulators have implemented more stringent rules and companies must be prepared to meet growing compliance demands.

Companies know that they must have strategies for risk assessment set up. Where should they start?

Automation can help organizations create strategies for risk assessment through increased standardization and visibility — something that manual processes cannot provide. From increased transparency to enhanced efficiency, automation helps equip organizations with the tools they need to combat risk.
