Audit automation software developer Approva thinks it’s a good thing to be a control freak, especially when it comes to making sure that companies have the right financial controls in place.

The company has embarked on a Control Freak campaign at its website and come out with the “Official Control Freak eHandbook.”

The step-by-step guide highlights how companies can better manage their businesses by getting a better grip on their controls and their lives. Not coincidentally, the guide also promotes continuous controls monitoring software like Approva’s. The company also recently launched a Control Freak blog, where yours truly was recently interviewed, along with some better known control freaks.
