The extent of our auditing services provided the motivation for us to shift the process of data collection and management from manual to digital. Paul and Cindy worked with developer Tony Stephenson and an in-house software application was developed to streamline and automate the auditing process.
Tony eventually joined Compliance Experts as a partner and the software soon evolved, with additional functionality facilitating the identification of trends and patterns in audit data for our larger clients. This further enabled us to provide more sophisticated and targeted advice on audit processes.
It wasn’t long before our clients saw potential in our audit software and expressed interest in using it themselves. We began the lengthy process of transitioning the application from an in-house tool to a commercial product. That product, now known as Compliance Checkpoint, was launched in 2003. It provided an industry scale tool that not only provided organisations with a highly efficient audit workflow but also allowed them to turn the data they collected into a powerful source of business intelligence (B.I.).
