Interpublic Group (IPG) has selected OpenPages FCM software for its Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) compliance programs. OpenPages says that the software will allow IPG to automate the ongoing test and review of its controls documentation to reduce the time, cost and complexity associated with SOX sections 404 and 302. A web-based, configurable solution for financial controls management, the software automates an organisation’s entire compliance lifecycle – from design and documentation, through test, review, approval and certification. Interactive dashboards and reports provide executive management with assurance into the state of compliance. As part of the OpenPages Platform, FCM is a part of the company’s enterprise-wide, integrated approach to governance, risk and compliance management.
