Profit leaks and fraud lurks in all organizations -- big and small, public and private, regardless of the industry and sector. But taking the first steps to build a solid error and fraud prevention program does not have to be expensive or time consuming. You can start by running 10 essential tests -- using existing software or Excel -- that will help you identify and thwart fraud, as well as demonstrate to the board, company owners and shareholders, that you have conducted prudent, risk-management exercises as a matter of course.
Join Rich Lanza, president of Cash Recovery Partners, LLC and a certified fraud examiner, for a one-hour Webcast in which he guides participants through demonstrations of 10 profit leak and fraud tests that can be performed at your company today.
During this Webcast, you will learn how to:
- Prioritize the top areas of error and fraud occurrence for your company, based on research culled from recent field surveys;
- Run key, proactive profit leaks and fraud detection tests -- using existing financial software -- in accounts payable, vendor entries, payroll, and sales bookings;
- Understand the best and easiest detection steps to implement immediately;
- Turn your vendor master file into a perpetual cash machine; and
- Set up a program of regular error and fraud risk management.
Included with this Webcast are several documents to help participants continue their learning after the Webcast:
-- Fraud Prevention Checklist;
-- A recent Fraud Research Study (2012);
-- Lists of Top Tests to Run in Top Occurring Areas Prone to Fraud;
