ACL Launches Workpapers, an iOS App for Mobile Auditing and Compliance Management

Vancouver-based ACL today expanded its mobile product portfolio with the launch of a free iPad app.

ACL Workpapers for the iPad is an extension of the Canadian company’s cloud-based audit and compliance management system. The company already offered an iPhone app. But the app has now been optimized for Apple’s tablets, while the iPhone version has received an update.

ACL says that the updated mobile software changes the day-to-day work experience for the audit and compliance professional by providing a new level of efficiency and productivity. It allows leaders to view, share and collaborate with their teams, and provides access to reports, project statuses, findings and management responses from their mobile devices, according to the company.

“Since last year’s release of the ACL Workpapers mobile audit management app for iPhone, we’ve recognized a strong demand for this type of technology on other devices as well, such as the iPad,” said Dan Zitting, Vice President, Product Management and Design at ACL. “As a result of the value that our customers derive from using our cloud-based, mobile solution, we plan to continue to extend that mobility.”

Clients see the value in mobility, ACL affirms. Rita Cochell, Director of Internal Audit & SOX Compliance for Logitech, says that accessing Workpapers from the cloud at any location and without a computer is “a huge productivity boost.” IIA President and CEO Richard Chambers agrees, noting that such mobile tools are helping practitioners “get their jobs done efficiently.”
