Online PR News – 12-November-2010 – – Yokohama, Japan (November 10, 2010) – WorkPapers.Pro (http://workpapers.pro), the creator of the original WorkPapers electronic audit working papers program, today announced the formal release of a new electronic working papers desktop application that integrates with the WorkPapers.Pro web application. WorkPapers.Pro has a very natural project work flow and low learning curve, which makes it the ideal tool for busy audit professionals and junior auditors still getting used to the audit work challenges.
Traditional audit electronic working papers require auditors to engage in extensive training to use the tools, usually including additional required training to learn approaches, methodologies, and other specialized knowledge. WorkPapers.Pro eliminates this road block to productivity by offering a tool that fosters the audit approach and planning through checklist and template management. The framework is up to the individual practitioner or audit practice and is not enforced in the WorkPapers.Pro tool – making it the only universal audit checklist manager, audit documentation manager, and audit template tool currently available to auditors. Furthermore, the desktop version allows audit team members to work without a network connection individually then synchronize their work with other team members via the WorkPapers.Pro web application.
WorkPapers.Pro currently offers the following features with an expanding feature list as the application is under continuous development:
Attach external documents
Link emails to audit work steps – great for tracking client responses
Access control between manager, editor, and reviewer profiles
Template export and import
Export all data to PDF or RTF (more formats coming soon)
Synchronize between a desktop application and a shared web application
Cross-platform – Windows and OS X
“The desktop release milestone has been achieved in record time, so the next major milestone for this quarter is Google Docs integration by the close of this quearter as originally promised,” says Kirt Cathey, the author of WorkPapers.Pro and WorkPapers desktop software.
“Traditional electronic working papers require a high and steep learning curve, cost an exorbitant amount for licensing, then enforce a specific methodology on the practitioner. It’s about time we created an affordable tool for the practitioner that can be quickly implemented to existing projects, has a low training requirement, and actually fosters the planning, evidence gathering, and reporting process. WorkPapers.Pro offers the very features that a practitioner needs to deliver consistent results through improved planning with a template import/export feature in an affordable package.”
WorkPapers.Pro has been in beta for the past six months, originally created from the code base the original WorkPapers desktop software that connects to a variety of relational databases.
WorkPapers.Pro is open for registration. Subscriptions are available from $17.95 per month, which includes the desktop software, which alone is a $89.95 value per seat. Custom intranet installation options are available upon inquiry.
