Energex has been working with Satori over the past three years. Initially, when establishing a program of quarterly data analytics over financial transactions, and more recently in the implementation of SatoriCCM within our Accounts Payable and Procurement processes. The SatoriCCM solution showed an immediate return on investment within the first three months by improving the quality of the supplier masterfile, identifying erroneous payments and improving the efficiency of controls assurance over these processes.

Using a software tool like Pentana allows me to demonstrate our commitment to better practice auditing and achieving an efficient and effective audit service for the organisation. A standard process which incorporates risk assessments in all audits has greatly improved the quality of our audits and therefore value add back to the business. All audits staff are consistently using it and it really has streamlined our whole audit process.
Tracey Lawrance, Chief Auditor, Safety and Assurance
The business was growing and we acquired another business 2 years ago, resulting in another 100 staff under us. Because of this, additional reporting was required to Singapore and it just got too great to do it in an Excel spreadsheet manner. We needed a system that everyone could use and extract information that is correct and one version. The Satori Group has been really supportive of our requirements, the backup and support has been second to none.
Colin Hardie, Financial Accountant
Metcash's systems process very large numbers of transactions. Over several years, we have developed Continuous Auditing applications that interrogate these high volume systems on a regular (often daily) basis looking for confirmation that key controls have continued to operate effectively. Importantly, the applications that provide these benefits are fully automated and work-flowed. Significant benefits have been returned over time both in controls assurance and the identification and correction of the inevitable transaction errors that arise in very high-volume transaction environments.
Glen Laslett, Group Audit Manager
QLeave is a portable long service leave authority for the building, construction and contract cleaning industries in QLD. We use Satori’s solutions across the organisation, primarily in the areas of data cleansing and records management. We have significantly reduced and eliminated the number of duplicate records, which has saved us at least 5,000 duplicate mail-outs annually. Information that used to be difficult to extract from the system (e.g. average weekly rate of pay) is now readily accessible, and more importantly, accurate.
Alison Clark, Principal Internal Auditor
We’re a small internal audit shop and we required technology to drive part of the audit program. We’re running Continuous Control Monitoring across payroll, accounts payable and accounts receivable. The Satori Group has provided us with an effective solution, which saves valuable time and resources. We make extensive use of the Satori Group’s expert knowledge in assisting us with implementing and helping to expand the CCM Solution.
