Sage Manipulation Training

Technology plays a pivotal role in successful auditing today. Not only is the process of extracting and manipulating client data essential to providing a timely and higher level of insight into a client’s position, but technology is also giving your clients the chance to commit fraudulent acts. This makes it important to fully understand the Sage system’s processes and capabilities.

This course therefore aims to provide auditors and client managers with the tips and skills required to handle client data, exploring the ways in which clients can manipulate Sage to commit fraud whilst using real-life scenarios to have maximum impact and reinforce learning points made.

Collateral Management Risk Training

The debt verification process is a key aspect of risk management for asset based lenders, with a large element of the underwriting process and subsequent lending decision is based on the client’s debtors rather than the client itself. With fraud also prevalent, collateral teams face a difficult balancing act: guarding against these risks whilst still providing exceptional client service at all times.

This course aims to assist collateral teams by looking at the key objectives of debt verification and collateral management, uncovering the important steps that must be taken in order to increase success and minimise risk.

Stock Training

Lending securely on stock finance is as challenging, if not more so, than receivables finance. There are many pitfalls and problems with the nature of stock and the opportunity for fraud is ever present amongst the clients being audited.

This course is designed to provide audit teams with the knowledge and awareness that’s required to undertake a successful stock evaluation, using a combination of recent examples and expert insight to explain the key steps that must be taken to protect your risk.
