Situation

Net­wor­king, digi­ta­liz­a­ti­on and pro­cess inter­faces repre­sent new chal­len­ges for com­pa­nies today. DSGVO, Inter­na­tio­nal eco­no­mic con­flicts – Many exter­nal fac­tors call for impro­ved or even new struc­tures and pro­ce­du­res.

Sepa­ra­ted divi­si­ons must learn to coope­ra­te more clo­se­ly. This chan­ges inter­nal pro­ces­ses and work­flows resul­ting in new oppor­tu­nities as well as sources of risk.

The SOICON Quick Check gives you trans­pa­ren­cy. Reco­gni­ze gaps, unused poten­ti­als and inter­de­pen­den­ci­es bet­ween your IT and ERP sys­tems as well as finan­ce and con­trol­ling with regard to your inter­nal con­trol sys­tems (ICS). This crea­tes an action space in which risks can be redu­ced and new oppor­tu­nities can be explo­i­ted.

Complication

The mul­ti­pli­ci­ty of inter­nal and exter­nal influ­en­cing fac­tors make it an enor­mous chal­len­ge to get an over­view of the tota­li­ty of all pro­ces­ses and their depen­den­ci­es. Mutu­al rela­ti­ons­hips bet­ween dif­fe­rent sys­tems, your employees, and the orga­niz­a­ti­on crea­te a high level of com­ple­xi­ty, cha­rac­te­ri­zed by dyna­mism, adap­ti­vi­ty, and diver­si­ty. The result: ambi­gui­ty that leads to insta­bi­li­ty and a lack of trans­pa­ren­cy.

Con­stant chan­ge results in a net­wor­ked world with inter­ac­ti­ve sub­sys­tems, it beco­mes even more important to con­si­der pro­blems in the appro­pria­te con­text and to under­stand their depen­den­ci­es. With the SOICON Quick Check you can iden­ti­fy risks cau­sed by opa­que pro­ces­ses and sol­ve them sus­tainab­ly on your own respon­si­bi­li­ty. This gives you the oppor­tu­ni­ty to build your com­pa­ny on a self-con­trol­ling net­work of inter­lo­cking sys­tems and mea­su­res.

Solution

The SOICON Quick Check con­si­ders your IT and ERP solu­ti­ons as well as your pro­ces­ses and con­trol mecha­nisms of finan­ce and con­trol­ling. An in-depth look at one or more of the­se are­as makes it pos­si­ble to unco­ver under­ly­ing cau­ses and issu­es that gene­ra­te cur­rent or future vul­nera­bi­li­ties. Tog­e­ther, we will gain the necessa­ry know­ledge about your pro­ces­ses and mea­su­res, so that you can bene­fit from the com­pe­tence of our experts.

In a kick-off work­shop and one-on-one dis­cus­sions, we coor­di­na­te our infor­ma­ti­on needs with the rele­vant depart­ment heads. In doing so, we collect qua­li­ta­ti­ve data and assist tho­se respon­si­ble in gathe­ring quan­ti­ta­ti­ve data. Mean­while, the hig­hest dis­cre­ti­on is always in the fore­ground for us. Once we have recei­ved enough infor­ma­ti­on, our seni­or con­sul­tants will com­pa­re the actu­al and the cus­to­mi­zed requi­re­ments for your com­pa­ny and then pro­ceed with the ana­ly­sis of inter­de­pen­den­ci­es. The results of the ana­ly­sis will be pre­pa­red and pre­sen­ted by SOICON for you in a work­shop. Through an inter­ac­ti­ve exchan­ge of ide­as and your input, you gain the maxi­mum bene­fit from the trans­fer of know­ledge and thus opti­mi­ze your com­pa­ny sus­tainab­ly. In the form of a final report, we will final­ly put tog­e­ther all our collec­ted infor­ma­ti­on, results and recom­men­da­ti­ons for action.

The added value for you

During the con­sul­ta­ti­on pro­cess, you and your employees are sen­si­ti­zed for bet­ter reco­gni­ti­on of depen­den­ci­es and imple­men­ting solu­ti­ons. In addi­ti­on, we docu­ment the new­ly acqui­red know­ledge about the pro­ces­ses and depen­den­ci­es in your com­pa­ny and make them avail­ab­le to you in their ent­i­re­ty. In this way, you pro­mo­te your inter­nal com­pe­ten­ces and deve­lop your com­pa­ny and its inde­pen­dence.
