PwC’s tech-enabled audit

Emerging technologies have revolutionized many aspects of business, and the audit is no different. 

At PwC, we are tech-enabling the audit, matching emerging technology with the skills of our people to dramatically shift how we work. Our award-winning auditing tools help to shift manual tasks to machines, allowing us to focus more on areas of higher risk and deliver new insights.

Our people and approach are critical to this development. Technology is just the enabler. We call it “human and machine collaboration”—and this combination is far stronger than either one alone.

Keeping an eye on the future

We continue to invest in our audit technology and the skills of our people to keep up with the rapid pace of change. For example:

  • Artificial Intelligence has the potential to automate much of what we do today. By combining AI technology with auditor expertise, we are creating products that exceed the abilities of both.
  • Robotic process automation is transforming the world of finance, including the audit. We are developing ways of robotizing (cyber-shoring) basic audit functions previously offshored.
  • Drones will bring viable solutions for many businesses in the near future, and audits are no exception.
  • Blockchain technology has the potential to significantly impact the audit, given the automation involved when recording transactions.
