Technology Association of Georgia Honors 40 Companies for Innovation and Contributions to the State’s Technology Community
ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Technology Association of Georgia (TAG), the state’s leading association dedicated to the promotion and economic advancement of Georgia’s technology industry, today announced Oversight as one of its Top 40 Innovative Technology Companies in Georgia. TAG will recognize this prestigious group at The Summit 2020 on March 3-4, 2020, at the Cobb Galleria Centre. Oversight is being recognized for its AI-powered platform that addresses the human risk that comes with enterprise spend.
TAG’S Top 40 Awards recognize Georgia-based technology companies for their innovation, financial impact, and their efforts at spreading awareness of Georgia’s technology initiatives throughout the U.S. and globally.
“The 2020 Top 40 finalists are an elite group of innovators who represent the very best of Georgia’s Technology community,” said Larry K. Williams, president & CEO of TAG. “The 2020 Top 40 finalists are shining examples of what makes our state such a hotbed for technology and we applaud them for standing out as leaders in Georgia’s technology community.”
This year’s Top 40 were selected from among over 100 applications submitted by companies from across Georgia. Companies selected for the "Top 40" will be showcased in an exhibition at The Summit 2020.
“This year’s Top 40 was more competitive than ever,” said Dennis Zakas, managing partner of Zakas & Leonard, LLP and chairperson of the Top 40 Selection Committee. “In our quest to showcase the most innovative companies in Georgia, we had to make hard decisions, resulting in the exclusion of numerous deserving companies, many of which had been recognized as a Top 10 company in the past. The companies that we selected this year are truly outstanding.”
Oversight is the most trusted audit and risk management partner for Fortune 5000 and government organizations. Its AI-powered platform identifies the human risk surrounding enterprise spend. By automating the analysis of all spend transactions and payments, Oversight can identify, manage and mitigate compliance and financial risk across enterprise organizations.
“We are honored to be recognized by TAG for our advancements in moving AI from concept to reality within the finance function. Everyday, we are helping organizations challenge the finance status quo by bringing data to life, providing a better alternative to managing risk and ultimately re-inventing their spend management processes,” said Terrence McCrossan, CEO for Oversight.
The event will feature internationally recognized keynote speakers, the Top 40 and Top 10 Innovative Georgia Companies competition, the newest inductee into the Technology Hall of Fame of Georgia, 16 breakout sessions on global trend, and a two-day exhibitor showcase.
The world’s largest brands and government agencies trust Oversight to identify employee-initiated spend risk no matter where it resides in their enterprise. Oversight’s AI-powered audit and risk management platform looks across spend categories and source systems to identify and prioritize risks that otherwise go undetected in traditional compliance and managerial reviews. By identifying process breakdowns and making corrections early, Oversight helps create a culture of compliance that reduces out-of-policy spending by 70% while maximizing audit efficiency and eliminating cash leakage enterprise-wide.
