Smart Auditing Solution Overview

The Solution will propose adjusted values and actions based on findings for the client's approval. This will be controlled by business logic as well as scripts that can be managed and updated on a need-basis by client’s team. Custom reports can be generated based on existing formats for audit verification and adjustments. The reports can be generated dynamically and made accessible to the auditors.

The platform can plug into existing client systems and consume data through rest APIs, using a built-in smart data exchange framework. Based on certain rules, it can also push the data into systems through rest API calls. All the reports on the platform can be instantly downloaded as excel sheets to enable auditors to perform analysis.

Real-time calculations can be performed by the platform, dynamically, based on predefined business logic and formulae. These can also be added as simple JavaScript snippets that are quick to write and simple to manage. Platform can flag which samples need to be looked at first by the auditors, based on auditing standards. These may also be scripted into the platform.

Each record will be validated on a record-by-record basis and system will flag it appropriately. The business rules, procedures and auditing standards that govern this flagging can be managed and updated in real time.  

The platform comes with a modern, polished UI out-of-the box, making it simple for auditors to use and update. The platform is available instantly over both, mobile and web.
