At the heart of BIGcontrols is a robust set of tools which allow you to optimize and take ownership of your business incentives. We've developed the application to seamlessly track both discretionary and statutory incentives. Our user-configurable and persistent at-a-glance feature provides complete transparency into all pertinent data for each incentive you manage inside the system. BIGcontrols automates your multi-year compliance requirements, tracks your utilization of benefits over time, and provides a document repository so all those misplaced documents finally have a home.
INCENTIVES - Tax Statutes
By leveraging CCH® IntelliConnect® from Wolters Kluwer, the tax & accounting industry's leading research platform, rest assured that you’ll have access to the best—and most up to date—statutory tax credit information at all times. We also provide automatic alerts on changes to federal and state tax laws & regulatory matters which affect the incentives you’re managing – we empower you with information the moment it happens.
INCENTIVES - Details
Our step-by-step entry process puts you in control of all the details you want to track, allowing for custom settings to the length of each incentive, various government contacts, and multiple company personnel responsible for individual incentive management – so they're all at your fingertips.
INCENTIVES - Requirements
The application tracks incentive requirements against actuals over time which supports compliance activities. If any incentives become out of compliance, alerts are sent to the incentive owners and notifications appear on the applicable users’ dashboards and incentive at-a-glance sections.
INCENTIVES - Payments
With a historical record of annual credit generation, usage, and carryforward amounts, you can track the full value of all your statutory tax credits. We also provide the same functionality for discretionary incentives, allowing for analysis of total payments against overall negotiated value.
INCENTIVES - Compliance
BIGcontrols ensures your compliance by automatically emailing reminders to the incentives owner based on the filing deadlines for each incentive. Our out of compliance alerts take the process one step further by reminding you to immediately deal with highly important issues or potentially forgo value that you’ve already negotiated. We're here to make sure nothing slips through the cracks!
INCENTIVES - Comments
Track and view valuable commentary specific to an individual incentive over time. We make it easy for you to troubleshoot potential issues and collaborate across departments and business units.
INCENTIVES - Documentation
Upload all documents related to your incentive activity: development agreements, tax forms, audit support documents. No more looking for missing documents - they're all in a central storage place that's easy to find.
Not just a compliance tool, BIGcontrols has built-in task management features to ensure deadlines are met through roles-based accountability. The application automatically creates tasks and emails users with alerts based approaching due dates. Tasks are assignable to specific users resulting in action and collaboration.
The application has been designed with a variety of roles-based permissions & access rights to allow maximum exposure across the corporate environment while maintaining control of certain user groups. We have included a role for an outside consultant should you wish to have a third-party assist you with managing BIGcontrols. The contact management feature provides a direct link to the government personnel responsible for regulating or auditing your incentives.
Our robust reports on Locations, Incentives and Tasks are customizable and interactive. Identify ROI by incentive across all locations. You can finally gain insight and transparency on incentive utilization across your business units, locations and incentive categories. These insights will help you drive improvements in your incentive maximization across your organization by identifying where you can increase value. And just in case you want to slice and dice that data further, we give you the option to export all of these customizable reports into a usable Excel format.
Have you ever wondered who changed something you were working on or when it changed? We record every event by date, time and user so you can always identify change details.
Personal configurations allow you to update your password and contact information. Company-level configuration provides customizable fields for locations and alerts to users for various tasks in the application. You can even update the verbiage of the emails and tailor the language so it fits with your corporate culture.
