2 Compliance Book

Since February 14th 2011 the SKYLOTEC ERP system offers an especially installed module called „compliance book“. This gives an allover verification, that in case of an attribution from or to a contact, it has been done in the boundaries of a socially adequate frame and not in order to influence a decision in an illegal or immoral way. EVERY kind of attribution from or to a contact which exceeds 10 € of worth will be taken down in the compliance book. Once the entry is confirmed, it will be booked in the accounting system of a closed database and cannot be changed or erased. SKYLOTEC provides every client or entitled interested third party (e.g. inquiry authorities) reports with entries to designated people or companies upon request.
