The Evolution of Auditing

The future of auditing demands an evolution — a different kind of solution. Legacy systems are leaving firms exposed to costly errors and inefficiencies. Firms need to know that they are doing what is expected, what needs to be done, that standards are covered and that they are remaining competitive while becoming more profitable.

Achieve that vision by leaving the checklist approach in the past and putting control back in the hands of your auditors. It is time to start seeing audits differently.

AN AWARD-WINNING COMBINATION

Wolters Kluwer’s Integrated Audit Approach is an end-to-end audit system, comprised of five trusted solutions working seamlessly together to keep you on track with the future of audit. For example, switching back and forth between multiple programs is now a thing of the past!

A New Perspective on Audits

Wolters Kluwer’s Integrated Audit Approach takes a new perspective on auditing. This revolutionary system is designed to break from the “checklist mentality,” where continually following predefined steps ends up discouraging auditors from thinking critically. Instead, the Integrated Audit Approach produces higher quality audits and improves efficiency through dynamic, iterative processes and tools that encourage auditor judgment and continual learning. With this approach, firms are realizing they can do more with the same — or even fewer — resources.

Dynamic Feedback & Coaching
Fast-changing legislation makes it hard to stay knowledgeable about the latest compliance issues. Wolters Kluwer’s Integrated Audit Approach minimizes oversights and manages completion with real-time alerts and diagnostics. Users can see the big picture through "answer effects" that explain the impact of certain actions, helping them develop as auditors.

A More Efficient Audit
Save hours per audit thanks to a single roll-forward and update process, automatic linking of the financial statement to the trial balance and industry-specific audit templates.

An Interative, Auditor-Led Process

It’s hard to proactively offer advice for your clients when you find yourself spending too much time on low-end work. The iterative design of the Integrated Audit Approach cuts down on non-value added activities by instantly updating data throughout all workpapers without having to re-run reports, allowing you to get back to the investigative work of auditing. 

The system identifies unnecessary steps and potentially unaddressed risk, but leaves the auditor in control of the audit. The goal is to help you make informed decisions, not to make decisions for you — a philosophically unique approach versus other audit solutions.

A One-of-a-Kind, Patented Audit Solution

In a professional firm, knowledge is the product. It’s the cornerstone of a quality audit, and can be the difference between compliance and noncompliance. Many audit systems, however, are built on outmoded standardized checklists and inflexible processes that don’t leverage auditor knowledge.

Instead, they discourage critical thinking by drawing auditors through the same steps audit after audit. In today’s complex environment, a disengaged audit process will not suffice. It’s time to change the perspective on audit. It’s time to let auditors get back to what they do best — the investigative work of auditing.
