OVERVIEW
method dev

AuditDesktop is an environment intended for the development of audit methods based on checklists, programs and procedures, templates of documents and spreadsheets. The Audit approach can be organized into steps and sub-steps, hierarchically arranged into groups corresponding to different stages of the audit process. The audit method development process allows cross referencing between the various audit documents. Each audit engagement can be performed applying a different audit method. During the auditing process, the approach chosen can be customized and expanded. Each work method can be used as a template for similar engagements.

CHECKLIST AND PROCEDURE

Checklist is the most powerful tool for developing audit programs and procedures in AuditDesktop. Based on either linearly or hierarchically arranged elements, which the user has to respond to by choosing Yes, No, Not applicable or information elements serving to arrange the information – they provide infinite possibilities for creating audit programs and procedures. Cross-reference links can be set to each element. AuditDesktop allows adjustment of dependencies where references and visible sub-elements may differ depending on each optional response, thus achieving unlimited possibilities to expand the audit program. AuditDesktop provides unprecedented possibilities, which you will not find in any competitor product, for fine-tuning and adding elements, steps and cross-references even during the performance of an audit engagement.

MS OFFICE INTEGRATION

You can use Microsoft Word and Excel documents, which are fully integrated in the product. All documents are stored in a single database and are accessible with their full functionality in the product environment. In addition, specifically designed custom fields are available within the documents through which a wide range of information from the current audit is available for use and display. When opening an office document, AuditDesktop will automatically fill in the necessary information from the current audit. Examples of information that can be displayed within the documents using AuditDesktop’s custom fields are: The team member who prepared the document, the reviewer, dates, comments, issues and many others. There are two types of parameters: one-way (read only) and two-way. One-way parameters only display the information within the documents. Two-way parameters display information which can be edited and updated. Examples of two-way parameters are: Issues, Findings, Notes and many others. AuditDesktop offers reports with information and hyperlinks to the documents in which the specific records are created.

QUESTIONNAIRE

The product allows assessment criteria and weight to be set for each question for easy further assessment of the answers received from the customer.
