Effective risk management and compliance with government regulations are driving the need for ongoing auditing. For companies that are regulated by the FDA or are following quality standards such as ISO 9000/14000, regular audits are essential to reduce the risk of non-compliance. However, audit management is becoming increasingly challenging, given the growing complexity of businesses and the number and types of audits that need to be conducted. Companies are fast realizing that point solutions and spreadsheet-based systems are no more suitable for managing internal audit programs.

During the event, MetricStream will showcase its Audit Management Solution, which is designed to help companies manage a wide range of audit-related activities, data, and processes in a single, comprehensive framework. MetricStream’s Audit Management Solution provides the flexibility to support all types of audits, including internal audits, operational audits, IT audits, supplier audits, and quality audits. It also provides end-to-end functionalities for managing the complete audit lifecycle - from audit planning and scheduling, to the development of standard audit plans and checklists, to field data collection, to the development of audit reports and recommendations, to the review of audit recommendations by auditees and the Management, to the implementation of audit recommendations. Advanced capabilities such as built-in remediation workflows, time tracking, email-based notifications and alerts, risk assessment methodologies, and offline audit functionalities allow organizations to implement industry best practices for efficient audit execution, and ensure integration of the audit process with the risk and compliance management system.
