  • AUDIT…

    Flextecs gains insight into areas of leakage by conducting an audit in one of two ways. Flextecs augments internal recovery functions through the use of our proprietary audit tools and services, improving audit capabilities within the four walls of our client, auditing closer to the transaction and reducing the volume of claims written by external firms.  Alternatively, Flextecs also provides traditional recovery services as a post audit firm, but with the stated goal of moving the client to “Real Time” auditing in the same year as the transaction.


    The audit process allows for root cause review, leakage assessments and Business Process and IT Systems Analysis in order to develop a clear understanding of leakage control issues. All of the above leads to actionable recommendations for the client to prevent leakage in the future.


    The insights developed through the course of the audit lead directly to “Solutions” in the form of: continuous real-time auditing with customized audit tools that are constantly enhanced, Business Process improvements within the Procure to Pay Process, and/or IT System “fixes”, such as a vendor portal.


The Standard For Accounts Payable Audit Recovery Firms

As a founder of the audit recovery industry, John Cook formed Flextecs, a global Accounts Payable Audit Recovery Firm. The objective of Flextecs is to “Help Companies Help Themselves”, by improving their internal controls of disbursements across the various divisions of their organization. Flextecs achieves this by performing a recovery audit, either in collaboration with a client’s internal team that is assigned audit recovery functions or as a traditional Accounts Payable Audit Recovery Firm. Through the use of Flextecs’  proprietary audit tools, the focus is not only to recover monies where errors are found, but to also recover these dollars in the current year. When systemic or procedural weaknesses are discovered, we work to identify the root causes of those errors and help the client correct the problem and control the leakage.

So whether our clients are looking for tools, industry expertise, or both, Flextecs has the audit recovery solution.

While the traditional recovery audit model continues to bring value in terms of cash, it fails to provide “insights” to the retail client. The existing business model is so dependent on recoveries for its income stream it is nearly impossible for a traditional audit firm to seek to find true closure of profit leakages.

We take a 5 step approach when completing an Audit Recovery

  1. Traditional Audit – Necessary to recover losses.
  2. Expand Scope – Used to share the results of the traditional audit recovery.
  3. Quick Fixes – Identify the problem.
  4. Live Auditing – A continuous process meant to find future problems closer to transaction.
  5. Business Process Improvement & Solutions – The final step allowing for a reduction in external claim expenses.
