Restoring clarity and confidence

PROBLEM: An insurance company endured a management change and acquisition, including the loss of a knowledgeable, experienced staff. An incomplete GAAP financial audit left numerous financial audits and internal financial statements out of date. One audit request required system detail verification of certain policies. SOLUTION: Our team identified and defined a system to trace revenue back through the policy and cash system to a bank record.
