Technology Innovator in Audit Management
Executive SummaryThis is not your father’s audit program. Audit today is different than it was a decade back. Today’s audit department has growing demands to do more audits across operations and relationships while still being constrained by limited resources to fulfill these demands. To effectively conduct audits, efficiently manage limited audit resources, and meet the agility required of a dynamic business environment requires intuitive and easy to use technologies to manage audits and track auditor time and utilization.

ACL delivers a new breed of GRC technology that leverages an intuitive Cloud platform to streamline audit management and GRC processes to make them more efficient, effective, and agile. The solution delivers significant business value and brings intuititveness and ease of use to timetracking of audits and other GRC related tasks. In this context, GRC 20/20 has recognized ACL Timesheets with a 2017 GRC Innovation Award for the technology innovation in audit management.
