What is IT Audit?

Posted by Protiviti KnowledgeLeader on Tue, Nov 20, 2018 @ 12:04 PM

It is a common occurrence today to find many organizations investing more and more resources – money, time, staff, etc. – into technology. Consider a relatively small retail company, for example, that’s focusing on expanding its website and online ordering capabilities while also building web-based platforms that can function seamlessly on a variety of popular mobile devices. At the same time, this company also must manage a broad and growing range of risks related to security and privacy; regulatory compliance; federal, state and local laws; use of social media by employees; and information technology (IT) infrastructure stability, among many other areas.

Bottom Line – Is a Lockbox Account Helpful for your Company?

Posted by Protiviti KnowledgeLeader on Fri, Nov 16, 2018 @ 09:25 AM

A lockbox is a bank-operated address to which a company’s customers can send their payments. The primary benefit of lockbox services is increasing speed and efficiency in the accounts receivable process. The bank opens the incoming mail, deposits all received funds into the company's account, and scans the payments and any remittance information. Lockbox accounts reduce the effects of processing float and the overall cost of cash processing, which are major risks associated with cash collections. In combination with electronic transfers of account information or outsourced receivables matching, electronic payments and lockboxes will greatly reduce the level of effort required to register payments in customer accounts. Automated cash mobilization (ACM) also helps reduce the effects of processing float.
