Good analysis and benchmarking of hotline data helps organisations answer crucial questions about their ethics and compliance programme.
Comparing internal data year over year to help answer these questions is important. But getting a broader perspective on how your performance matches up to industry norms is critical.

The management of financial data in an organization is of paramount importance. Reporting, evaluating ROI, making adjustments across the business, and increasing revenue depend on good, accessible financial data that can be updated and integrated across systems and software.
For these reasons, many organizations have turned to master data management (MDM) software in the effort to better store, access, search, retrieve, and analyze their financial data. These MDM solutions are able to collect data within a single unified, fully integrated, user-friendly platform. However, in order to be most effective, MDM applications must also have capabilities in data relationship management (DRM). DRM software is able to describe and enforce the relationships between data, no matter where it's located within an organization, to provide a holistic and consistent solution.
Historiquement les notions de gouvernance, de conformité, de contrôle et d'audit n'ont été pensées qu'après coup dans les modules financiers des logiciels ERP classiques. Ce sujet a longtemps été ignoré à l'occasion de la conception, du développement et de l’évaluation des logiciels de gestion d’entreprise. Le contrôle n’est pas aussi urgent que le traitement des transactions, pas aussi visible que le reporting financier ou pas aussi passionnant que le décisionnel. Il vient donc souvent dans un second temps.
De nos jours, la gouvernance est devenue centrale. C'est sur ce précepte que Workday a conçu ses solutions.
Au début des logiciels de gestion, dans les années 80 et 90, le contrôle était loin d'être une priorité. Les lois Sarbanes-Oxley, Basel II et IFRS n’existaient pas encore et « l’audit hors logiciel » était monnaie courante. Les « gros ERP » ont résolu ce problème comme ils le pouvaient, en rachetant des technologies ou en créant des fonctionnalités qui ont été ensuite intégré

As more pressure is placed on the finance team to provide meaningful insights more frequently, it is becoming increasingly necessary to speed up business processes, as well as have immediate access to the most up-to-date information. The traditional expense reporting process is a drain from both perspectives.
Using software to manage employee expenses can provide a more efficient means of managing the process, however most solutions are simply a digital version of the traditional paper process. This can limit the amount of time savings you can gain.
This paper will demonstrate the time savings you can accomplish by implementing a real time expense reporting solution versus one that relies on employee generated expense reports.
