Find out what our current clients have to say about CaseWare - Cropped

When it comes to purchasing any kind of software solution, a measure of hesitance is perfectly normal. Sometimes it can be difficult to make decisions that can have an impact on the success of your business. It is often easier to first understand how it has helped another business similar to yours. Here we highlight three success stories from clients who were very satisfied with CaseWare – clients that are just like you. You can read through them to see how CaseWare has significantly streamlined their production of Annual Financial Statements.

Mpumalanga Gaming Board (South Africa)

The Mpumalanga Gaming Board was using a spreadsheet programme for their preparation of Annual Financial Statements. However, they found the process slow and labour-intensive. To gain the benefit of reduced time, greater accuracy and compliance – in this case with Generally Recognised Accounting Practices (GRAP) – they opted for CaseWare.

“With CaseWare, many of the time-consuming, laborious tasks associated with the preparation of Annual Financial Statements were automated. The software also ensured that all the requirements for GRAP compliance are fulfilled. It draws attention to any discrepancies, improving accuracy,” said CFO Lucas Maseko. “Based on how well it works and the automation it offers, I think any government department can benefit from this software.”

The public sector entity, responsible for performing all functions assigned to it in terms of the Mpumalanga Gambling Act, has reaped positive results in its significant acceleration of the performance of its finance department. It now produces quality Annual Financial Statements which are GAAP compliant, error-free and with a high degree of automation and speed.

Onderstepoort Biological Products (South Africa)

This veterinary pharmaceuticals company has found the production of Annual Financial Statements faster, easier and more accurate since they embraced CaseWare. Previously, the government organisation relied on spreadsheets. Financial Manager Zolani Poni said it used to take a whole month to finish the documents – a process that now takes just two days.

“The structure in CaseWare means that once the files are set up and mapped, you just update with new information. With CaseWare keeping the core information as well as your calculations, once your Trial Balance is correctly mapped, the output is synced. Functionality like this makes life a lot easier,” he said.

Onderstepoort Biological Products reported that the auditors were very impressed with their Annual Financial Statements and noted the quality of their IFRS disclosures.

M2R Audit Services (Uganda)

M2R were finding the compilation of Annual Financial Statements to be a lengthy and inefficient process that carried the risk of failure to comply with legislation. Frequent changes to regulations like IFRS and IPSAS increase the risk of inaccuracies. However, upon moving to CaseWare, M2R found that this was no longer a problem as the software would immediately identify and resolve any discrepancies. The company also saw improvements in their screening procedures.

“My business is still in the start-up phase, but the cost of the software is well justified,” said Robert Mugangaizi, partner in the company. “Thanks to the support of the software in enforcing adherence to good financial practices, my client screening procedures have become more stringent. CaseWare has become my trusted audit execution assistant.”

M2R, like many other companies, have benefitted from the simplified risk identification and analysis provided by CaseWare.

With a long history in the automation of compliant financial statements, CaseWare is trusted by companies in the same field the world over. The solution, which has been helping businesses for twenty years, is used in more than 130 countries, and has 18 000 users in Africa alone.

Why CaseWare is the best solution for your firm

Why CaseWare is the best solution for your auditing firm - Cropped

Choosing to invest in new technologies is a decision that requires careful consideration. In this age of technology-driven competition in business, however, it is a decision that needs to be made to stay ahead of the rest. This applies to all sectors and industries – and accounting and audit firms are no exception. It is no longer enough to simply offer the traditional range of services to clients; adding value in the form of faster turnaround times and extra benefits is essential. Modern customers expect more, and firms need to meet their needs. Leveraging technology is the best way to do this – the right solution can improve the efficiency of your practice, ensure compliance, enhance accuracy and save you time – giving you the freedom to focus on developing your business strategies and anchoring yourself in the market.

CaseWare is an end-to-end Financial statement and audit software solution that checks all of these boxes. In this blog, we detail why it is the best product for practices large and small.

CaseWare: a fully integrated solution

Historically, accounting and audit firms have relied on a combination of hard and software products to handle their financial reporting demands. Firms have found such disparate systems expensive, difficult to integrate and prone to technical failures and other issues that slow down work processes and negatively impact productivity. As technology develops, integration and centralisation are becoming buzzwords. CaseWare is a key example of how systems can be simplified and streamlined, taking care of all your audit and financial statement requirements in one easy-to-manage system. This translates to greater control of the auditing process from start to finish. CaseWare is also scalable, so you only pay for what you need. You can add or remove components as your business evolves, making the software a perfect fit for firms of all sizes.

Trusted compliance is easier than ever

Compliance is non-negotiable in the world of finance. The reputation of your firm hinges on operating, and helping your clients to operate, in line with legal requirements. Previously, ensuring compliance was a time-consuming process that ran the risk of oversight. CaseWare makes it much easier. With built-in checks and access to the latest local and international regulations, including IFRS and International Standards on Auditing, checking compliance is painless and reliable. Our team of experts will keep you up to date on any changes that may affect your business. With your compliance requirements met, you will have peace of mind, as well as time to dedicate to strategic relationship building and expansion.

CaseWare eliminates errors and inaccuracies

Relying on outdated spreadsheet solutions is a risky business for auditing firms. Software programs like Excel often result in errors – manual mistakes are common and can be extremely costly, causing financial losses and damage to your firm’s reputation. CaseWare eliminates the possibility of errors appearing with a foolproof system of checks and safeguards. Having accuracy guaranteed not only allows you to concentrate on your tasks with the knowledge that your financial statements are 100% correct, but frees up time that would otherwise be spent checking documents and fixing issues. This is a key way of streamlining your work processes.

CaseWare improves efficiency and saves time

A successful business is defined not by the number of hours its staff put in, but by how efficiently the workplace as a whole operates. Sluggish systems and technical issues can cause delays and drops in productivity, as well as frustration among staff. Tackling multiple projects and processes simultaneously requires efficient systems, as well as excellent task and time management – and technology can make this much easier for firms. As we have shown, by streamlining workflows and enabling faster financial statement preparation, CaseWare saves your firm time, allows you to increase your billing hours, network more and invest in growing your business.
