  • Do not explain this slide, Just give an summery that roughly US$ half a million to one and a half million can be lost due to errors, Remind them and connect the US$ 7.5 million to the two quotes on “median of 18 months before a fraud is detected” and “5% loss due to fraud” Ask them where they would fall in the 0.06 – 0.16 spectrumAsk if the calculations are realistic to them, give examples of the 0.06% basically getting a balance SL 60 cents from a bill of SLR 1000.
  • Again connect this to the challenges slides of organizations
  • Ask if the product is useful to them,
  • Change the name of the company
