Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Considering the solution's return on investment, it has been extremely helpful since we were doing a lot of documentation. Previously, in our company, we were using an Excel sheet which made things quite messy.""The most valuable feature is that everybody can use the same tool. You can give a person permission to use AuditBoard and define their access to the Audit Table. For example, we can allow external auditors or clients to review our completed tests. The clients are attached to specific tests that happen regularly, like inventory counts and asset counts. Debt compliance is only done once annually.""There are lots of features.""I find the most significant elements of this solution are the out-of-the-box reporting, the ease of workflow, workflow management, and the ease of managing our audit process.""In AuditBoard, there are all the audit steps, including documentation, archiving, and tracking the progress of audits.""The most valuable feature of AuditBoard is its ability to facilitate the editing of work papers in a seamless and efficient manner. This is achieved through a built-in tool that allows for real-time editing without the need for downloading the working paper. This feature has proven to be incredibly time-saving for me as it eliminates the step of having to download the file and make changes, instead providing an easy-to-access "edit work paper" option. Overall, this feature has greatly improved my experience with AuditBoard and has been a significant contributor to its success in my opinion.""The most valuable feature is the well-documented instruction.""Its ability to share the data in real-time has helped us well."

"Black Kite is a good visual tool."

More Black Kite Pros →

"It is not easy to analyze the results of a survey as a whole.""Some of that flexibility could be enhanced. When comparing Archer and TeamMate+, there is a little more open-ended in terms of certain of our audit processes and procedures. And there is significantly greater freedom in creating ad hoc audit processes and procedures, whereas AuditBoard is a little more limiting in this regard.""The initial setup is somewhat difficult because it has multiple pieces that need to be stitched together. You have to integrate it with the business unit you want to test if you want to go down from the corporate level to the operational level.""The layout for the end user could be improved.""AuditBoard could benefit from the addition of video capabilities, although it is not a necessity. Small companies that cannot afford licenses for Microsoft Teams or Zoom would benefit greatly from this feature, as it would enhance the communication process.""They should improve the solution's test sheets feature for ease of use.""Everything is there, and I have no disadvantage to note as of now.""After sending out a request to my network for documents, it would be great to have a receipt that shows who received the request and who did not."

"The solution’s patch management should be improved. The overall security view and scorecard have remained unchanged over the past three years. There's no technical support available."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "Pricing is variable, like with any technology, and is determined by how hard you wish to negotiate. You can get to a price you're willing to pay if you're willing to negotiate aggressively."
  • "I highly recommend this tool as the price is reasonable. However, consistent pricing is important, and having a loyalty program that rewards long-term customers with lower prices would be a great addition."

    Questions from the Community
    Top Answer:It consolidates the E2E process in one single solution, and in a very user friendly environment.
    Top Answer:I believe the license is based on the number of key controls that will be tested regularly. You can also pay extra for additional modules, like risk testing and operational audits, etc.
    Top Answer:The layout for the end user could be improved for the control owners and people from whom I request information. If you have a good knowledge of internal auditing, you know there are internal controls… more »
