Illustrative challenges that clarify solutions of ComputationalAuditing.com:
1. Make detectable and prevent under-reporting of revenue by franchisees,
royalty payers, and other payers of revenue based fees.
You are the franchisor of a hotel chain. I am one of your franchisees and
I only report 50% of my revenue. I use the most advanced trickery like sales
suppression software or zappers. How do you unmask me? What convinces
you that no revenue is missed? Relevant in for example the global hospitality
services industry: hotel franchises, restaurant franchises, etc.
2. Make detectable and prevent fake franchisees, fake dealerships or
sales of counterfeit products using your brand name.
You are a pharmaceutical developer. I am part of your global production unit
and reseller network. More than half of my revenue is from overproduction runs
and copycat counterfeit products without telling you. How do you unmask me?
What convinces you that no revenue is missed? How to provide direct authenticity
product assurance to clients, showing that you globally control your brand in
real time? Relevant in for example quality brand industries, like pharmaceutical
manufacturers and their global dealer networks, thus opening up business
presence opportunity in markets and continents where this is inveterated.
3. Provide assurance to clients that they are buying the genuine product.
On individual product level. On the spot of the sales transaction. Electronic
self-assurance mechanism for franchisee clients. Brand control for franchisor.
