Implementation risk

RSM’s ERP implementation risk service team’s capabilities:

When going with an “out of the box” ERP solution, implementers are typically not responsible for controls design and testing effectiveness. With an understanding of your framework, specific controls and regulatory requirements, like SOX, FDA and ISO, our job as your risk advisor is to evaluate the controls environment, review design documentation, and identify control objectives and control design activities. We can implement GRC technologies to mitigate segregation of duties risk or build bots to automate controls or test of automated controls.
