Key advantages

With Unit4 Audit & Control, both internal and external auditing and control departments gain smarter control, execution and monitoring of periodic processes, including all the evidence and audit trails that they may require.

A smarter, more streamlined solution

Audit & Control enables process managers to drive recurring processes as a series of tasks that should be executed in a predefined sequence by pre-assigned teams, for example the period closing and reporting process. Each task consists of a task description, a task answer, follow-up actions (optional), evidence/attachments (optional), calculation sheets (optional) and a task audit trail.

Sharper financial focus and control

It addresses the issues around making non-transactional process activities properly visible, controlled and auditable. Thanks to built-in task management, these activities can now be modelled and managed, regardless of the source ERP system(s). In addition, full audit trails and progress reports ensure activities that need to be executed periodically are visible after they have been carried out.

A more collaborative approach

Audit & Control helps all those involved in delivering control and auditability to access and share information much more easily, increasing collaboration efficiency by as much as 25%. Now the CFO/financial controller, internal auditors and external auditors can all benefit from information that is being generated and shared in a common format, which is already used by thousands of auditors.

Giving you the full picture

It gathers data from any number or type of ERP or financial management systems (including the top 5 international ERP software packages). It then translates the data into a single, shared uniform standard, so that it can be used for central analysis, regardless of the various data structures and system rules of the source systems.
