The importance of having strong controls in place can often be boiled down to ‘trustworthiness’, or put in another way, lack of controls can lead to mistrust by stakeholders, shareholders, customers or the public in general.

Trust is important in most areas of the organization, and thus, controls aren’t limited to finance only. The CSR department may have a desire to implement controls ensuring that the ‘code of conduct’ is acknowledged not only by the company itself but also by vendors and other external parties. The IT department is relying on controls to provide stable and secure operation and may also be looking at controls to help comply with data protection directives.

Regardless of the purpose, Impero is a powerful platform for managing risk and controls across all business areas. The case stories below demonstrates the broad use amongst some of our valued customers.
