Integration Gives Audit Teams Easy, One-Click Upload of Scanned Documents Into AuditFile Engagements
Walnut Creek, Calif. - March 5, 2018 – AuditFile, Inc. today announced an exclusive integration partnership with Canon USA, Inc., a leader in digital imaging. AuditFile's award-winning, cloud-based audit automation platform now features easy, one-click upload of scanned documents from select Canon imageFORMULA scanners into related client engagements.
Canon imageFORMULA scanners allow users to digitize information and create keyword searchable documents that will upload to AuditFile with just one click. "This seamless compatibility makes converting paper to electronic documents easier," said Andy Ikeda, Director, BISG Image Capture Solutions Division. "Accountants need reliable and compatible scanners to use in their auditing engagements. Canon imageFORMULA scanners can help them save time and improve efficiency, especially when combined with the AuditFile solution.
The integration is compatible with select Canon high-performance imageFORMULA document scanners, including the Canon imageFORMULA P-215II mobile document scanner, and the DR-C225, DR-C225W, DR-C240, DR-M140, DR-M160II, and DR-M260 office document scanners. For example, audit teams in the field can easily scan and upload client workpapers using Canon imageFORMULA P-215II mobile scanners into specific procedures within the related engagement in AuditFile.
The seamless, one-click upload process is not only more convenient, but it also ensures compliance with policies dictating the proper handling of sensitive financial information by eliminating the need to upload to a folder onto a computer hard drive first.
"There have been many discussions about disruptive technologies changing audit processes in the future," said Steven Bong, CEO at AuditFile. "Cloud computing is already changing audit and paving the way for those future changes. The ability to connect products, tools, services, and content from different providers from anywhere in the world and make that data instantly accessible to the audit process is transformative in ways both large and small. With Canon's technology to scan directly from the Cloud Application, Canon has demonstrated the power of the cloud can be extended to seemingly small processes and still have a significant impact."
