2. Providing ERP controls services to help audit and non-audit clients address risk and control needs around ERP systems

3. Assessing, recommending, designing and configuring controls as they relate to businessprocesses, ERP application security, and Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC)".

4.Designing and assessing control related services around major ERP systems; and
