How data analytics are revolutionizing the audit

Better data analysis

“Having revenue trends visualized differently opened our eyes to process improvement opportunities.”

We plotted revenue transactions by customer — both volume and amount — as part of the audit. Seeing revenue in totality as compared to a sample of transactions, management experienced business relevant and data-informed discussions during the audit process and ultimately, identified potential areas where revenue processes could be enhanced.

Pricing controls enhanced

“Seeing manual pricing changes visualized differently helped us turn insight into action.”

Our audit unlocked data-driven insights that highlighted the volume of manual pricing adjustments being made, catching management’s attention. They analyzed further and decided to design and implement enhanced controls over pricing policies to reduce the risk of changes to revenue.
