IT Audit With Data Analytics

In the digital age, something as small as a glitch can lead to disastrous results. As organizations grow increasingly reliant on IT systems, auditors need to find and understand the potential uncertainties of this environment. Use data analytics to mitigate risk and conquer the rapid pace of technological change. Perform repeatable tests in one click and ensure the right people get the exact results they need – when they need it. Adapt to technological progress by using our solution to analyze: 

  • Computer security
  • Email logs
  • Firewalls
  • Telephone logs and accounts

Operational Audit & Data Analytics

Operational audits interrupt day-to-day functions, and due to the costs associated with doing so, it’s crucial for the success of your audit team to audit efficiently and effectively. Our integrated, user-friendly solution helps you achieve this by providing a consolidated view to quickly and thoroughly measure the performance of enterprise functions. Data analytics will transform your operation audit by allowing you to: 

  • Share findings across your business to get audit recommendations into operations
  • Consolidate data to assess controls across departments and business processes
  • Use 100+ audit-relevant tasks to break-down complicated performance issues
  • Collaborate on the analysis in real-time making it easier to get others involved

Audit Analytics & Fraud Risk Analysis

When performing fraud risk management, you can feel the pressure from increasing levels of scrutiny – especially when there’s little room for error. Leveraging data analytics allows you to efficiently identify patterns of fraud, conduct trend analysis, and understand results so that your team can build a strong and effective anti-fraud program. Use our integrated suite to:

  • Analyze 100% of transactions to uncover every anomaly 
  • Automate analysis to pinpoint fraud quickly, preventing future problems
  • Import data easily (spreadsheets, exported data from databases, accounting systems, ERP systems, and T&E applications)
  • Create an audit trail you can trust to repeat the same analysis

A Consolidated View of Your Financial Controls

Testing controls from many departments without data analytics puts your organization at risk for fraud, policy abuse, and wasted profits. Prevent this by using a solution that easily connects to multiple financial processes and applications. This consolidated view eliminates blind spots, stops improper payments and automates reconciliations to transform your team from operations to strategic advisors. Elevate your finance department by using our solution to:

  • Analyze 100% of transactions in less time from multiple sources seamlessly
  • Collaborate with the entire finance team to share data analysis insights in real-time
  • Quickly identify suspicious or fraudulent transactions in areas such as general ledger, payroll and travel & entertainment (T&E) expenses
  • View data in customizable panels within shareable dashboards for quick identification of risk areas
