British American Tobacco: Reduce Risk and Drive Smart Business Decisions
It’s imperative for British American Tobacco (BAT) to not only have lightning-fast access to data, but also a streamlined, automated way of being able to process it to ensure the right decisions can be made in order to achieve the goals of the business.
Companies spend over 80% of their time collating endless data points, yet only 20% of that time analysing and acting upon findings—this seems unsustainable. It not only slows down decision-making, but it also opens up a whole realm of potential errors.
Technologies now exist so that organisations can take back control over their data.
This webinar covers:
- How BAT can reduce risk and drive automation by connecting and standardising reporting from source through to submission—ultimately leading to a harmonised reporting function
- How connecting the three lines of defence in BAT’s internal audit function is essential to an efficient controls environment
- Why a reporting team spending a majority of their time manipulating Word and Excel can be damaging to the strategic direction of a business
