Who We Are
Gradient Solutions is a customer-centered firm driven to protect our clients through risk-focused consulting. Since our founding in 2003, we have specialized in helping private sector, public sector, higher education, and not-for-profit entities reduce risk and improve oversight. We understand the unique set of challenges inherent in each of these environments and offer solutions specific to our clients’ needs. We seek to be a trusted resource, operating behind the scenes to help our clients identify the best solutions for their organization.
Data analysis is increasingly important in today's business and public sector environments. Our team supports management in their efforts to identify opportunities for governance, process, and internal controls improvement through data analysis. Or tools and methods also help identify possible areas of compliance breakdowns or fraud.
Risk management is a part of everyday life. You or your organization may not have a formal plan, but you make risk decisions daily. Gradient has worked with numerous organizations to perform risk assessments, train on risk management techniques, and examine risk from the executive team to the individual transaction.
Whether we like it or not, fraud often becomes part of our business experience. As a licensed Investigations Company in Texas, Gradient is positioned and ready to bring our unique skillset to help your organization prevent fraud, detect fraud, or respond to fraud. In most cases, we utilize a combination of our internal audit, data analytics, information technology, and fraud examination training to help you proactively prevent issues or systematically uncover root causes of any problems.
Gradient has a long history of supporting internal audit and compliance professionals to help manage risk and improve organizations. Gradient has experience in all aspects of internal audit practice, various types of project engagements, and internal audit software (TeamMate and Galvanize (formerly ACL)).
Gradient also recognizes the importance of Internal controls in executing an organization's strategy and mission. Gradient experts have years of experience evaluating and reviewing internal control design and implementation from the control environment to individual processes with internal audit and compliance teams.
