Systems and Process Assurance

With the ever-increasing complexity of business operations, assurance to the effectiveness of key business processes, risks and controls has never been more important. To compete and prosper in a global environment, businesses must make continual changes in operations, processes and technology.

While having more effective business operations than those of competitors is central to enhancing shareholder value, companies can only do this if they have the right processes, skills, systems and information.

Companies are also facing increasing demand from their stakeholders in the areas of corporate governance and business ethics, environmental efficiency, fair labour practices, workplace health and safety and reporting transparency. Investors, regulators and media are scrutinising corporate behaviour closely.
