Alkalay – Monarov Consulting’s Effcon system (effective – control) is a unique automated system which was developed based on over 20 years of experience in the fields of Internal Control and Fraud Prevention Engagements. The system facilitates the maintenance of an automated, continuous and independent control system for purposes of identifying control weaknesses, fraud and irregularities, reducing operational risks and assessing the effectiveness of internal control in the organization. The system constitutes a major tool in assisting organizations in achieving their business objectives.
How it works
Our firm assists organizations in installing the Effcon (Effective control) system which contains defined sets of analytical rules. During its ongoing work, the Effcon system reads the transactions in the organization’s information systems and analyzes deviances and identifies red flags on the basis of the pre-defined analytical rules. In the event that the system identifies an exceptions, management and the parties responsible for implementing and monitoring controls of the business process will receive an alert regarding the event and will quickly ascertain whether or not there is a risk to the organization, the strength of the risk and the proper response shortly after the occurrence of the event.
The set of analytical rules is defined by a team of experts with vast experience in discovering deviations in various fields, based on many years of experience in our firm, in the fields of control and risk management.
Each organization has the option of adding new additional rules to the system which are unique to the environment of the organization, thereby fully adapting the system to its own needs.
