Heading towards an IPO and worried about SOX compliance? Already subject to SOX and want to make your audit process easier? On June 24th, 2pm EDT / 11am PDT, we’re sitting down with four NetSuite professionals who’ve found ways to automate the hardest parts of SOX compliance and audit prep.

NetSuite is the ERP of choice for growing companies, and it’s no surprise that so many organizations going through the IPO process struggle to get their systems in order for SOX compliance. The good news is that many NetSuite teams have been through it before. Our panel includes finance, IT and systems leadership at recent IPOs who are eager to share what they’ve learned.

We will kick things off with an overview and best practices from Spencer Roundy from the Cadence Group. Then, in what is sure to be a wide-ranging discussion, we’ll cover:

  • When and how they got started
  • Who owned responsibility for what
  • What tools helped them through the process
  • What were the biggest challenges
  • What was most surprising about the process
  • What they’d do differently if they could

Space is limited, so be sure to register to secure your spot today.
