AuditFile, Inc., has released a new collaboration feature which allows users to edit PDF files in real time. A developer of a cloud-based audit automation platform, the company has a mission of offering a sophisticated toolset that helps practitioners improve the efficiency of audit processes, while ensuring that the software itself remains simple to use for all technological abilities.
The ability for a dispersed team to view and edit PDF files in real time gives CPAs greater flexibility in creating, editing and managing workpapers within AuditFile. With an increase in remote working, this new feature will significantly improve how teams stay connected from different locations.
The enhancement empowers AuditFile users to dynamically edit PDF files from within AuditFile’s cloud environment, without the need to download or use desktop tools. Additionally, multiple users can work on the files in real-time without creating version conflicts or “lock-out” situations. When multiple users are editing a file, each can see who else is in the file, as well as any changes or comments as they are made. The capabilities include tickmarks and other customizable annotation tools. This update is built right into the AuditFile Workpaper Manager for a seamless experience.
“Now, more than ever, the ability to collaborate while working remotely is critical. Our goal is to deliver easy-to-use, cloud-based tools that give audit professionals the flexibility to work when, where and how they choose,” said Kevin Bong, founder and Chief Operating Officer at AuditFile. “We plan to continue to build on this integration, looking for practical ways to apply and extend that functionality to enhance the customer experience. We are offering free Premium Support for 1 year ($1,500 value) with unlimited 1-on-1 onboarding and support sessions. Users can speak to CPAs with years of audit experience for free. We are also bumping everyone to free unlimited cloud storage to help all those working remotely!”
