VANCOUVER, British Columbia, May 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ACL Services Ltd., the leading provider of analytics and audit management technology solutions, today announced the launch of ACL Workpapers for iOS™, the first native mobile full-featured audit management app. ACL Workpapers for iOS is now available as a free download from the iTunes App Store™.
"ACL Workpapers for iOS represents the first step toward changing the way audit professionals are able to perform in today's increasingly mobile world," said Dan Zitting, Vice President of Working Papers Software for ACL Services. "Chief Audit Executives can now literally put their audit management system in their pocket, check on their team's progress, troubleshoot issues, and run reports on the go."
ACL Workpapers for iOS is an extension of ACL Workpapers™, a cloud-based audit management system built to help audit teams and corporate audit departments effectively manage their audits from beginning to end. ACL Workpapers was developed by auditors in actual audit practice and is designed to increase productivity by organizing fieldwork documentation, automating project management, enabling collaboration, and reporting results. Thousands of auditors around the world use ACL Workpapers to build and monitor audit projects of all types, whether financial, operational, compliance or technical.
ACL Workpapers for iOS is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch and requires iOS 4.0 or later. To download the app, go to the App Store. Native extension for iPad and an Android app are presently under development, and are expected to be ready for release this summer.
"This app fills an important void in the market by providing a simple and elegant solution," said Sergiu Cernautan CPA, CISA, an independent consultant and founder of Vancouver-based Straight Talk Consulting Solutions. "One of the key features that stands out from the rest is the portability and the flexibility it provides to manage consulting or audit projects from various devices while on the go. Now, I will be able to use my iPhone or iPad to update a conclusion to a work step, assign a task to a team member, and instantly access a status report while I'm in a meeting. I can also upload a picture of a document as audit evidence without having to use a scanner while I am in an interview and not at my computer."
"Auditors in the field can upload photos, documents or even request additional information direct from their iPhones; users can instantaneously respond to requests; and busy managers can identify and address problems from anywhere," added Zitting.
