It's imperative for management to have good insight into what’s really going on across the firm, to provide effective governance, management, and monitoring – helping you achieve controlled growth. A good example is effective journal management, which is essential to understanding the financial position of your firm. It helps to improve regulatory compliance, and make sure you accurately represent your firm to all stakeholders. ​

To help you improve your governance, Grant Thornton’s Data, RegTech & Digital Advisory practice has joined forces with ALICE™ to offer firms an end-to-end solution for controls automation, helping you cut costs and focus your resource efforts where it really matters.

What our experts say

“As financial services firms continue to operate in a complex environment across a multitude of risk and regulatory requirements, establishing fit for purpose controls across critical processes (such as journal management) is essential. Developing the controls automation initiative which combines regulatory, data, automation expertise with a leading platform such as ALICE™ will provide our clients with a valuable solution for their automation and digital requirements.”

“There have always been high-performing and hugely talented audit, risk and compliance professionals. As leaders, it's important to provide them tools and resources to unlock successful careers by driving the digital transformation and disruption as opposed to just being a victim of such inevitable change. ALICE™ gives them an opportunity to pioneer the future of digital governance by digitally equipping them to be relevant in a disrupted future. 

We're excited about this alliance with Grant Thornton as we believe this will further accelerate adoption of new technologies across the firm's clients and the growth of ALICE™ in new geographies and markets.”
