From the Paper:

"At any corporation, both manual and computerized controls are necessary to ensure the proper flow of business and that adequate steps are taken that allow the business to continue to operate successfully. At Drotos Theatres, the manual controls in place involve the serial numbered tickets, the box that the other half of the ticket is placed in, and the ticket taker. The computerized controls involve the Controller depositing cash and recording transactions by posting journal entries into the computerized financial accounting system. The manual controls are not adequate in this case, because there is no system of checks and balances. To gain admittance to the theatre, cashiers receive payments from theatre customers and provide customers with a serially numbered, perforated ticket. "
