American Enterprise – Internal Controls for SOX Testimonial

Your browser doesn't support HTML5 canvas

Disconnected Challenges

American Enterprise was already producing a range of complex financial reporting requirements. But then it was required to comply with the Model Audit Rule (MAR)—a new financial reporting regulation for insurance companies with a component similar to SOX, but for smaller insurance companies. The company needed a technology platform that provided greater transparency and flexibility while improving information accuracy and providing a positive experience for management and external auditors.

Connected Results

  • A single location for managing the entire MAR process
  • Linked data for total confidence in data accuracy
  • Enthusiastic support from internal teams, C-suite, and external auditors


SOX Compliance, Financial Reporting




I know that there are many, many reports that have to be filed. Same on the security side. So, I would just say to anybody who is going into the private sector in insurance, these are just such easy programs to do. Once you set up the program, once you have the checks and balances in place, it is just very easy.

If we can’t rely on the documents we have and the programs we have, we are going to have major problems with regulators around the country because they are always going to be second guessing, and I think to the extent we can get the information online, we can review it quickly, and get it out to the regulators, it is just a much better system. It is more reliable.

I hope other companies are doing the same thing we are doing because it has allowed us to use our talents in other ways. We can look at what is the future of this company, where do we want to go. We know we have these programs in place, we don’t have to worry about spending all our time filling out forms or making sure we have an accurate document because the program does it for us.
