BWise® Internal Control Software Solution
Internal Control in control with state-of-the-art Governance, Risk management and Compliance Software
Support for the End-to-End Internal Control Process
BWise® Internal Control is a software solution that supports the end-to-end internal control process and is part of the BWise integrated Governance, Risk management, and Compliance Platform. The process typically begins with risk-based scoping of the work to be performed, preventing unnecessary documentation and testing work. Based on the scope, all relevant financial information, related business processes and risks are documented with all mitigating measures and controls that are expected to be in place. BWise then enables the performance of a full design effectiveness test at the required level of detail and the required regularity. Then the operating effectiveness of key controls is tested by BWise, either through manual testing or automated testing. Any deficiencies found during documentation, design or operating effectiveness are investigated using integrated Issue Management in the BWise® Internal Control solution.
