  • We have changed the way you schedule controls! It is now possible to set custom due dates as your task requires, schedule for periods covered instead of calendar dates and much more.
  • Pre-set periods: once the due date for the control is set, Impero will automatically assign the period that the control will cover. This enables users to find actual control result based on period rather than dates.
  • Controls can now be scheduled monthly, quarterly, every half year as well as yearly in addition to the periods available earlier
  1. Reviewer Notification:
  • Due dates can now be specified both for the preparer and the reviewer giving both defined periods for control submission.
  • Where a reviewer is assigned to a control, scheduling of the control can be modified to ensure reviewer gets minimum specific days to review a control after submission by preparer. This will change due date for the assignee to an earlier date and notify the reviewer once the assignee submits the control.
  • The final due date for the control will remain the same.
  1. Financial Year and Holiday Calendars:
  • It is now possible to add a custom financial year and holiday calendar specific to your organization. It will enable accurate due date scheduling and help you to monitor timelines.
  • To add an organizational calendar, reach out to Impero at support@impero.dk

  • Calculate risk scores for each of your risk statements by adding numeric values for specified criteria’s. Instead of relying on subjective risk category, use numeric data and formulas to arrive at a risk score. All such data and base calculations can be stored and assessed in the system, helping in more accurate risk assessment.
  • To design a risk matrix specific for your organization, reach out to us at support@impero.com

Version 1.40

We have added the following features, new and updated to Impero:

New Features:

     1. Segregation of duties:

  • The new feature enables users to enforce segregation between control performer and the reviewer so as to ensure that the reviewer of a control is not the same as the assignee.
  • Where the reviewer is the same as the assignee, an error message will be displayed.
  • Where user groups are used, reviewer option will be taken away for the individual who claims the control.

     2. Claiming controls in User Groups:

  • Where controls are assigned to a group of people instead of an individual, duplication of work becomes a potential challenge. To avoid this, it is now possible for individuals in the group to claim a control for themselves. Once claimed, the control becomes primary responsibility of the claimant. However, others in the group will still be able to complete the control be logging into the system.
  •  All notifications and reminders (if any) will only be sent to the user who claimed the control. Others can view the open controls from the “Your Pending Items” list from their Impero dashboard.
  • Default claimants can also be set by system administrators by using the Create/Edit control function.
