How is PwC responding? We’re simplifying the audit through innovation. 


Watch the Halo video


Halo is PwC’s leading-edge technology for data extraction, auditing and visualization. It is transforming the way we audit and unlocking a wealth of information, providing deeper real-time insight from data and allowing us more visibility into your business.

Large volumes of transactions can be interrogated and analyzed. This helps us more efficiently and effectively assess risk and focus on items of significance to the audit.


Watch the Connect video


Connect is our collaborative workflow tool, providing faster, more efficient and secure information sharing at each stage of the audit. It streamlines and monitors the document exchange process on a real-time basis. It allows both you and us to check progress any time, anywhere.

Access wherever you are, for improved visibility into real-time request statuses, built-in tracking to help drive accountability, and much more.


Watch the Aura video


Aura, our global audit platform, is used by our nearly 100,000 auditors worldwide on every PwC audit. It helps to make sure that things are done the right way—consistently and efficiently, globally and locally. The intended result is all of the elements of our audit fit together seamlessly—no duplications, no omissions.

Global Delivery Model

With PwC’s Global Delivery Model, we use service delivery centers located around the globe to perform standardized and routine audit and administrative procedures. This provides more time for the core team to focus on increasingly challenging aspects of the audit, thus further enhancing audit quality and consistency.

Engagement Performance & Quality

Engagement Performance & Quality is our approach to continuously improve the audit process. It helps teams improve audit performance by leveraging process improvement techniques—rethinking the sequence, timing and manner of work to be performed.

PwC audit – people approach and technology

“And that’s just the beginning – PwC has a suite of additional tools available now and in development – think artificial intelligence – to ensure we stay at the forefront of audit innovation and quality for our clients.”
