The Largest Mobile Home Manufacturer in the US Achieves Its Goals with Fastpath…and Experiences the Benefits of a “Proactive” Approach
“The front-end is the best place to help companies just starting out on a new implementation and going forward. And Fastpath is one of the most cost-effective tools to do that.”
Matt’s team used Fastpath to design user roles for both the Oracle Cloud financial and supply chain products prior to go-live. Big Four auditors provided by Berkshire Hathaway helped with reviews of the user roles and the company passed “with flying colors.” Implementing Fastpath from the start of their Oracle Cloud implementation has made it much easier for Matt’s team to monitor maintain the security roles within Oracle. Fastpath lets his team review weekly Separation of Duties automated reports. “ITGC and SOX becomes less of a concern,” he said. “And if anything is a problem, I learn about it through my weekly audit reviews.” Access reviews are conducted quarterly, and roles can be reviewed by business unit. Fastpath also helps the team monitor sensitive access issues (correcting manual journal entries, errors, and higher-risk access problems) on a monthly basis, identify exposure to risk, and to take corrective action, as necessary.
When sharing his feedback about the company’s experience with Fastpath, Matt was compelled to stress the lessons he gleaned from the companies he interviewed while performing his due diligence, looking for a SoD tool like Fastpath—and how being proactive helped his team avoid the issues they encountered. A key to the success of Clayton Homes implementing Fastpath was to plan for and address SoD roles, controls, and rulesets on the frontend, before the implementation began. “Many companies wait until the implementation is over and the roles have been baked in,” said Matt.
