Cupertino, Calif.-based Certus Software extended its Governance Suite to include Governance360, which provides personalized access to compliance information and activities across the enterprise, integrating compliance practices into daily business routines. The Certus Governance Suite is designed to serve as a firm's financial controls system of record to help support Sarbanes-Oxley compliance.
With Governance360, companies can include key compliance information - such as control data, summaries, reports and near real-time alerts - in a financial management portal. The information then can be viewed side by side with information from other performance applications. Additionally, using Governance360, progress in identifying and resolving significant deficiencies and material weaknesses can be continuously reported to management, the audit committee and external auditors, Certus says. "From the internal auditor to the CFO, every stakeholder needs access to the right information - at the right time, in the right form - from compliance, financial and business performance applications," said Lee Dittmar, principal, Deloitte Consulting, in a release.
