With virtually every institution moving towards digital record keeping, an audit process now demands cutting-edge solutions that can seamlessly integrate with the dynamic nature of electronic documents. This article discusses some key ways in which Apryse is changing the way financial institutions manage documents.

What is a Digital Financial Audit?

A digital financial audit refers to the examination and verification of an organization's financial information using digital tools and technologies. Traditional financial audits involve manually reviewing financial statements, transactions, and relevant documents. In a digital financial audit, technology is leveraged to streamline and enhance the audit process.

Why Conduct a Digital Financial Audit?

Digital audits integrate technology throughout the audit process. The use of digital tools provides auditors with deeper insights, automates mundane tasks with accuracy, and ensures a fool-proof approach to version tracking; enabling them to pose more informed questions to management and adding value to both the audited entity and stakeholders.

This is especially relevant given recent accounting standards (IFRS 9, IFRS 15, IFRS 16, IFRS 17), emphasizing granular data and well-defined automated processes.

Beyond operational benefits, the digital audit aids financial services companies in building trust by offering deeper insights into their operations.
