Today, Wolters Kluwer Tax & Accounting announced that the 5th edition of its complimentary Audit Talks LIVE virtual conference will take place on June 1-2, 2021. Bringing together audit experts and technologists from Wolters Kluwer, speakers from the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) and Boomer Consulting, Inc., as well as many other CPA practitioners, this virtual event offers participants an opportunity to hear from some of the leading experts about how technology can help firms improve productivity, realization, and client service in their external audit practice.
“Two years ago, we created this virtual event as a platform where external auditors could listen to experts and peers in their profession talk about how technology is helping evolve their audit practice,” said Colleen Knuff, Vice President of Audit Product Management at Wolters Kluwer Tax & Accounting North America. “The fifth edition of the Audit Talks Live conference is poised to help them further transform the way they work so they can better utilize client data to strengthen audit quality and continue to meet the changing needs of their customers.”
Featuring 15 unique 30-minute sessions divided into three distinct tracks – Auditing for Superheroes, Accounting & Reporting Insights, and Navigating the Firm Landscape – this 2-day complimentary online conference will provide external auditors with a unique opportunity for professional development and actionable information they can apply in their firms. This fifth edition will cover topics ranging from maximizing client value and effectiveness through process improvement, auditing with the help of automation, analytics & artificial intelligence, and peer review best-practices; to connecting the dots between analytics & standards, changes in quality control/management standards, and the future of the audit workflow, only to name a few.
Wolters Kluwer Integrated Audit Approach focuses the audit process on auditor judgment, covering the entire end-to-end workflow to maximize efficiencies and guide firms to a higher quality audit avoiding over or under auditing. This unique approach facilitates their ability to make informed decisions by ensuring that the audit is tailored for each client, always having a link to the assessed risk and the work performed. It combines the powerful content-driven tools of CCH® ProSystem fx® Knowledge Coach and CCH Axcess™ Knowledge Coach, the efficiency of CCH® ProSystem fx® Engagement and TeamMate® Analytics, plus the comprehensive content of CCH® Accounting Research Manager® and CCH Axcess™ Financial Prep, the first dynamic cloud-based trial balance solution integrated with Xero, QBOnline, CCH Axcess™ Workstream, CCH Axcess™ Tax, as well as other cloud-based audit solutions soon to be released on the award-winning CCH Axcess™ platform.
