A leader takes people where they want to go. A great leader takes people where they don't necessarily want to go, but ought to be.

The Non-accelerator's dilemma: Sarbanes-Oxley compliance without the BIG price tag

At SCG, we recognize that small and medium enterprises can be resourced challenged with complying with the Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) Act. Through our SOX experiences, we are adept at finding solutions that satisfy small enterprises' needs while balancing the challenges of quality, cost and effectiveness.

Currently, non-accelerators have been given extra time to deal with some of the challenges SOX presents to smaller enterprises However, smaller enterprises will have to overcome many challenges including: segregation of duties, lack of formal documentation, information technology knowledge and the ever-changing SOX requirements. Overcoming these issues will require not only strong internal controls but also good accounting processes and good business sense.

The SCG difference in SOX compliance for the small company filer

Our approach to SOX is different than most consulting companies because we try to help companies focus on the big picture of solving business problems and improving their financial processes. Moreover, we have tried to simplify SOX by developing a "plug and play" toolset and methodology to help ease the burden of implementation and reduce the costs to your company in a measurable way. The result of our "plug and play" methodology helps non-accelerated filers implement SOX faster and more cost-effectively without the implementation headaches.
