Investing in Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) technology entails significant cost to companies and leads to significant risks if not managed properly. The increasing complexity of ERP’s software applications adds to the risk of security threats, with evolving technology, new functionality, and web-based solutions. PwC’s ERP Assurance practice combines cross-sector, cross-application experience to help you mitigate risk and improve your ERP systems.
Usually ERPs are empty containers that are configured based on business requirements. Software providers are technical and cannot advise on industry practices from a compliance and audit perspective. As a result:
We help you to solve your most complex challenges across technology environments—from traditional on-premise to cloud and hybrid applications.
We can assist you in addressing your high-risk enterprise systems challenges and gain value from your technologies, processes and data to improve business performance and compliance.
