Audit Readiness

Many organizations struggle to respond to audit enquiries in a timely manner because of the vast amount of data that must be collected, reviewed and reported on. It is a complex, time consuming task that requires Business, Legal, and IT groups to work together, sometimes spending days or weeks preparing a single audit report.

Serrala’s Audit Readiness solution enables companies to extract data and documents quickly to respond to global audit requirements without requiring IT involvement. It makes it easy for companies to extract large volumes of information from both production systems and archive repositories in audit-ready formats to meet global standard (SOX, SAF-T) and ad hoc audit requirements.
