Consulting Groups Join Forces to Provide SOX Software and Solutions
Paisley Consulting, a leading provider of business accountability software, and Hudson Financial Solutions, a practice group of Hudson Global Resources and provider of end-to-end solutions for complex financial issues,
will work in partnership to offer services and software to clients implementing mandated Sarbanes-Oxley compliance programs.
Paisley Consulting’s FocusTM Control Assurance Software is designed to help companies maintain accountability and responsibility for specific tasks and projects and to provide localized documentation and necessary certification of data associated with the compliance process.
Hudson Financial Solutions will utilize Focus to assist CFOs, controllers and key financial leaders in designing and implementing comprehensive Sarbanes-Oxley compliance initiatives, from project scope and documentation through testing, remediation and ongoing monitoring.
Together, the companies will pursue mutual business opportunities integrating established project management methodologies with flexible management of resources and information. As part of a Hudson-Paisley Consulting SOX consulting solution, clients will pay reduced licensing
fees and receive enhanced technical support.
“This strategic partnership truly benefits small and medium sized companies seeking a costeffective and efficient approach to compliance with Sections 302 and 404,” said Tim Welu, CEO, Paisley Consulting. “Both Paisley Consulting and Hudson have a holistic approach that helps companies build a long term risk management strategy.”
“Focus aligns perfectly with the business needs of Hudson’s clients who seek a straightforward and centralized software solution for compliance,” added Dee Lonn, executive vice president of Hudson Financial Solutions. “Forming a strategic alliance with Focus will improve the return on
clients’ SOX investments by providing a solution that will assign accountability at the business unit level and streamline the ongoing monitoring process.”
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
