Ideagen Plc partners with Sepia Solutions to boost efficiencies in the financial sector

January 23, 2014

(PRWEB UK ) 23 January 2014 Sepia Solutions specialises in providing and supporting client focused Audit and Risk Management software to organisations across the Benelux countries. As an Ideagen accredited Level 3 Implementation Partner, Sepia Solutions has contributed to the further success of BDO’s Risk Management and Compliance activities with their clients. Alain Rousseau , Sepia Solutions’ Principal said: “I have implemented Pentana Vision in organisations with one-person audit departments, in large multinationals with 60+ of auditors and in regulatory bodies. The implementation for BDO was different and very interesting because they were not the actual end-user but their client (an insurance company) was. On the other hand some of the functions such as Risk Management were outsourced to BDO. It was very interesting and an enjoyable experience. I look forward to working together with BDO on future opportunities.” Seamless integration is key in delivering audit and risk management solutions and Sepia Solutions has found the Pentana Vision solution extremely powerful and effective. By using Ideagen’s Pentana Vision software, BDO delivered its crucial objectives to improve their services to their clients. John Hijmans , partner of BDO, comments: “It was difficult to maintain an up-to-date risk and control environment and work together effectively in the three lines of defence. Pentana Vision has helped us to get to the next level in terms of risk and control activities.” He added, “Pentana Vision has enabled the three lines of defence in Risk Management and Control to work together more effectively. In addition, our clients are better able to communicate their Risk and Control environment to stakeholders.” Ideagen’s Pentana Vision solution, is a leading risk management audit tool, developed for Enterprise Risk Management, SOX compliance, Investigations, Health and Safety or any application where risk assessment and centralised action tracking is required. Using the latest Microsoft technologies to empower the internal audit department to save essential time, the tool increases efficiency and maximises the power of collaborative working. It integrates all aspects of the audit cycle from annual planning to detailed risk assessment and controls testing, through to action tracking and Audit Committee reporting. Ben Dorks, Ideagen’s Group Sales and Marketing Director, comments: “Through Ideagen’s partnership with Sepia Solutions, we can offer best bespoke and effective software solutions to organisations that are tailored to the client’s specific requirements and are available on-premise and via the cloud, through our partners at RackSpace.” “We are delighted to hear about success stories from our customers who use our solutions that contribute to their corporate accomplishments. We look forward to providing tools and further service to organisations that are looking to increase productivity within their working environments,” he added. -Ends- NOTES TO EDITORS About Ideagen Plc Ideagen Plc is an eGRC software development business specialising in information management solutions for organisations that operate within industries that are subject to high regulatory standards.
