TTX, a provider of railcars and freight car management services, has been employing business applications including SAP Business Warehouse and SAP Manager Solution for their SAP ERP business applications successfully since 1998. By 2011 the company’s compliance leaders recognized the need to confront potential security vulnerabilities, specifically due to a large number of segregation of duties (SOD) issues. TTX knew that to solve this issue effectively, they would need a clear strategy to improve the company’s internal controls environment rapidly.
TTX enlisted SAP GRC Access Control solution to address their security challenges based on a complex assortment of short and long-term objectives, and the next, crucial step was choosing an implementation partner to guide TTX through the SAP installation and integration. As part of the partner search process, TTX was seeking a partner that met specific requirements including the ability to execute an accelerated implementation timeline, seamless integration with back-end SAP ERP system, and a company they could trust before, during, and after the implementation process.
“itelligence was chosen based on its implementation experience, reputation as an SAP partner and the fact that they came to the table with a unique solution, “ said Jim Lindsey, Director, Financial Reporting for TTX. “With itelligence’s help, TTX was able to redesign their security role for their ERP system using the itelligence Secure.it solution. Because of itelligence, TTX now has a fully capable technology infrastructure to support a compliant environment with SAP GRC tools.”
As with TTX, itelligence collaborates with all of their customers to embed both financial and operational controls properly into business processes. itelligence leverages their SAP expertise to optimize GRC with processes that include improved business operations as well as maximized strategic and operational performance. The benefits of a successful GRC implementation – risk management, access control, process control, etc. – foster an efficient and positive working environment for any business.
