Innovative Technologies for Audit

The audit industry is not an exception. Technology has transformed every industry. With advanced tools such as advanced analytics, adaptable artificial intelligence and virtualization auditors can use technology to boost productivity, enhance efficiency, and provide an enhanced audit experience for their clients.

Despite the advantages however, there are a variety of obstacles to adopting innovative technologies. For instance, the cost aspect and the impact on the team’s workflow must be considered when planning technology adoption. A thorough knowledge of the technology’s capabilities, along with a solid security strategy are essential to ensure a successful implementation.

One of the most significant benefits of using technology in auditing is the ability to gain a more thorough perspective into clients’ processes, inventory and systems controls. Auditors can use advanced software to detect potential accounting, fraud and failure risks within a client’s data. This allows them to report their findings to management and boards more efficiently.

Other auditing innovations that rely on technology include process mining (which identifies the flow and control of data within a system) and robotic process automation. RPA automates repetitive tasks to cut down time and increase the consistency of audits. Technology can also reduce the stress that comes with meeting deadlines. It can also provide a more reliable auditor by reducing manual work and providing automated solutions for complex tasks.
