Has your department developed analytics that are being used consistently in your organization? Now may be the time to consider automating some of the analytics processes you regularly use.

The common adage amongst data scientist professionals is that 80% of the time spent in analytics is spent acquiring and cleaning up data for further assessment. We can build a data retrieval solution that reduces the time you spend acquiring and cleansing data, providing your team more time to analyze data. We have worked with several ETL tools to acquire and cleanse data from multiple data sources.
We can help you implement a solution that works for your team using automation tools including:

Are you looking to detect fraud or irregularity the moment it happens? You most likely need a series of advanced analytics processes to find unrecognized patterns in your data.
Developing an advanced analytics program is an investment. According to the Journal of Accountancy, the time invested into analytics typically takes 3 years for an audit team to see an ROI. The time commitment to develop analytics also can take away critical hours from your auditing/compliance activities.
Additionally, AI in audit and compliance is non-traditional and not all teams have access to staff with data science backgrounds. The identification of a new staff member may be difficult to justify— someone with a solid data science background and a strong knowledge of business risks is often costly for a 3-year investment.
Have ambitions to implement the latest AI techniques but do not want to take away from your audits? Expecting more readily noticeable ROI without increased overhead? We can help you design impactful analytics that can be used to achieve actionable, meaningful results.
