Premier Audit Solutions
Knowledge Coach is an award-winning and peer-reviewed solution that’s an audit planning tool, workpaper generator, workflow management application and risk monitor all rolled into one. Tailored audit information flows from planning through completion, coaching auditors through the process while still allowing for professional judgment. The explicit linkage of risks to program steps helps auditors follow a risk-based audit approach in an efficient and effective manner.
With convenient integration to CCH’s ProSystem fx® Engagement , Knowledge Coach provides a superior audit management solution that’s supported by Knowledge-Based Audit (KBA) methodology – ideal for streamlining the investigative work of auditing and for boosting productivity, compared to older checklist-based solutions.
And when Knowledge Coach is combined with optional, direct linkage to ARM,  users benefit from premier research content, information and analysis in one place – also on the go via Apple iPad.
