Tech-enabling the audit for enhanced quality and greater insights
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.
Halo uses data analysis and visualization to identify areas of higher risk for your organization and generate insights.
Aura is our single instance “audit ERP” system that helps teams get work done one way—the right way—consistently and efficiently, globally and locally.
Connect streamlines, standardizes and automates real-time communication in the workflow 24/7 wherever you are in the world.
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:
As markets evolve and become more complex and new technologies emerge, how will CFOs and others in the finance function know which information to rely on? Technology has already improved audit quality, for instance, but how might newer technologies like artificial intelligence and blockchain deliver greater insight and better judgement?
