Notably, CCH Axcess Knowledge Coach tailors the audit based on the characteristics of the firm and the engagement. Specifically, it:

  • One: directly links identified risks with audit steps
  • Two: flows information throughout the workpapers where needed
  • Three: monitors the engagement for completeness and compliance

And, all while allowing the auditor to exercise professional judgment.

Additionally, thanks to real-time, contextual-based diagnostics, notifications, and updates, this module provides auditors with:

  • First, risk-based guidance
  • Second, all the tools necessary to deliver a truly complete, thorough, and compliant audit
