Our tools are powerful, able to query large databases and analyze vast amounts of data in efficient and cost-effective ways that wouldn’t otherwise be feasible. Using analytics tools we have helped auditors:

Obtain a higher level of audit coverage by testing 100% of transactions versus a sample of items
Obtain future savings in subsequent years with the same data analysis routines run in minimal time
Increase audit scope by performing tests in areas that wouldn’t normally be included
From data analysis through data reporting, we’ve got you covered including:
Using tools like ACL or Arbutus, our data analysis services support internal audit activities related to specific audits and improve visibility into business risks. For business groups, data analysis provides management with the information they need to make better decisions.
