ACL, which develops technologies for managing corporate audit and risk, has announced the expansion of its mobile audit and compliance management product offering with the launch of ACL Workpapers for the iPad. ACL Workpapers for iOS, an extension of the ACL Workpapers cloud-based audit and compliance management system, is available for iPhone and iPad as a free download on the iTunes App Store.
ACL’s updated mobile software changes the day-to-day work experience for the audit and compliance professional by providing a new level of efficiency and productivity. It allows leaders to view, share and collaborate with their teams, and provides access to reports, project statuses, findings and management responses from their mobile devices. For fieldwork, ACL Workpapers for iOS enables users to enter field notes, capture photo and video evidence, manage deliverables, document requests, and track project hours.
According to Rita Cochell, Director of Internal Audit & SOX Compliance for Logitech, “I work with auditors and compliance professionals worldwide who are constantly on the go. Allowing them to access Workpapers and the capability to manage projects remotely in the cloud, regardless of their location or ability to log onto a computer, is a huge productivity boost.”
Mobility enables audit and compliance leaders to stay up-to-date with projects and findings, and enables instant recall for the audit executive. “Most organizations today are not just in just one place, and neither are today’s internal auditors,” said IIA President and CEO Richard Chambers. “Mobile tools are helping on-the-go practitioners get their jobs done efficiently when the demands on them have never been greater.”
“Since last year’s release of the ACL Workpapers mobile audit management app for iPhone, we’ve recognized a strong demand for this type of technology on other devices as well, such as the iPad,” said Dan Zitting, Vice President, Product Management and Design at ACL. “As a result of the value that our customers derive from using our cloud-based, mobile solution, we plan to continue to extend that mobility.”
Attendees of The IIA’s 2013 General Audit Management Conference (GAM), to be held at the ARIA Resort and Casino in Las Vegas from March 18 – 20, 2013, will be able to test-drive the iPad app under the guidance of ACL product engineers at the ACL booth.
