As you may know, CaseWare’s new SMSF Audit was released last year, in preparation for the 2015 audit season. This is our first entirely cloud-based audit tool, and the firms that have used it for their 2015 audits have provided us with very positive feedback:
“At last, an SMSF audit solution that ticks all of the boxes”
“We have found that is has assisted our SMSF audit process by reducing file setup and establishment time”
“The platform offers so much more than improved workpapers, it assists auditors with efficiency, quality of audit and Audit Standards compliance”
“Great product and initiative CaseWare… it is the right product at the right time”
So why did we move to the Cloud? We have been offering desktop software solutions to Australian auditors for over 20 years, so this was a big change for us. Why did we decide to do it? This is a common question I receive from auditors, so let me share my response with you all:
Being cloud-based means we can offer you so much more integration, automation and efficiencies than we ever could in our CaseWare desktop solutions.
More specifically, some of the benefits SMSF Audit in the Cloud offers are:
- Integration with premier Cloud-based administration platforms – Direct integration with Class Super, BGL Simplefund 360 and superMate make setting up your files as simple as logging in and picking SMSFs from a list
- Secure, collaborative platform – the CaseWare Cloud platform that SMSF Audit is hosted on can be used as a client portal, allowing you to offer clients a secure cloud location to send and receive documents and information
- Workflow and productivity tools – CaseWare Cloud platform also includes tools for allocating work, viewing key audit information at the summary level, assessing job progress, reviewing budget versus actual hours, and even billing customers
- Audit query manager – submit your audit queries directly to administrators from inside your audit file, and receive their responses back automatically
- Anywhere, anytime access – audit and review at any time, from any web-enabled device. Now there are no excuses!
- We keep you current – with SMSF Audit, it is impossible to fall behind in updates as we can do them for you
And that is just to name a few!
