Summary
RevRec provides out-of-box control checks that help you meet the SOX-compliance requirements: for example, invalid or missing data, unusual or uncontemplated use case scenarios that warrant a second look, or software issues that may have impacted your data. Once a potential issue is identified, RevRec will alert you and provide detailed information, including the full description of the issue, an analysis of the potential impact, and oftentimes the proposed resolutions, so that you can review and resolve the issue.

Control Checks Alert

Solution

Usage
The Control Checks box is located on the dashboard. You will see an alert flag when a potential issue is identified.

Click on the alert icon, and RevRec will open the Control Checks page. The top bar lists the areas that RevRec checks for potential impacts: bookings, invoices, revenue, and deferred revenue. In addition, RevRec highlights the specific impacted area by the issue. For example, this issue impacts the recognized revenue.

Example of Control Issue that impacts Revenue

RevRec considers process control and validation to be very critical. The Control Checks feature gives you a tool to enhance the issue identification and resolution process. RevRec helps you with the following checks:

ChecksDescription
Integration with Source SystemsTo ensure that RevRec has captured the data correctly and completely when integrating with third-party systems, such as CRM for contract information or Xero for invoicing data.
Data ValidationTo ensure that the data passes RevRec's quality checks. For example, a multi-currency transaction invoice should include the currency code for the invoiced amount.
Business Logic Check





To ensure all validated invoice and sales order data is processed by RevRec properly. Some additional business logic checks are:
proper allocation of transaction price to performance obligations under the contract.
the revenue recognized over the contract term should be equal to the allocated transaction price.
when both contract and billings/invoices data are provided, the total billings should be equal to the total transaction price/contract value.
Accounting Journal EntriesTo ensure that accounting journal entries are created correctly and capture the recognized revenue.

RevRec conducts these checks automatically to ensure that any exceptions or issues are promptly identified.
