“Having this complete toolkit enables us to constantly reassess risk and
update our understanding of the client, knowing that changes flow
smoothly throughout the binder and will be saved and rolled forward into
the next fiscal year,” said Paula Lowe, CPA, and Partner at Pattillo,
Brown & Hill LLP. “By adding TeamMate Analytics, we will improve the
value we bring to our clients with our advanced ability to test a larger
number of transactions while focusing on assessed risks.”

TeamMate Analytics offers over 150 tools specifically designed to meet
the analytical needs of CPA firm auditors and accountants to help them
run analytics and, more importantly, interpret the results. These easy
to use tools are Microsoft Excel-based, support analytic testing with
configurable modules that automate audit tests, provide visualization of
results, and offer an in-depth test library with guidance on how to
interpret test results. Users range from sole practitioners to Big 4
accounting firms in more than 70 countries worldwide, with departments
that have one auditor to departments with more than 100.

“We will now be able to focus on the risky transactions rather than a
simple random sample, giving us the confidence that we’ve identified and
tested for any assessed risks. In addition, the ability to drill down on
a population of transactions and quickly identify red flags with just a
few clicks will save our auditors significant time,” added Kent Willis,
CPA and Audit Supervisor at Pattillo, Brown & Hill LLP.
