Welcome to the new world of auditing. A world where the Chief Financial Officer and team have a firm grip on the daily business and help improve the effectiveness and performance of the company every day.

PwC’s ongoing innovation in AI in the audit

PwC’s proprietary predictive analytics employs cloud-based machine learning and advanced statistical models to provide our auditors with the ability to predict client revenue to support audit procedures. This technology enables full population analysis of transactions that make up a financial statement line item balance, and includes built-in data reliability and model validation checks helping our teams further enhance their understanding of your business, while delivering a more tailored, quality audit.

PwC’s proprietary AI-assisted financial statement disclosure checking uses AI capabilities to augment the review of financial statement disclosures, and will also assist with sustainability and climate reporting in the future, reducing turnaround times, enhancing quality and unburdening the auditing process.

PwC’s exploration of Generative AI and AI-enabled search functionality seeks to provide our auditors with the ability to pinpoint relevant information with accuracy and precision and generate relevant summaries to support the audit process. The prototype capability enables our professionals to search through significant volumes of accounting and auditing guidance, or customise their experience by uploading and querying their own documentation - eliminating the need for manual search.

The audit re-imagined

What role will emerging technology play in the future of audit?

Driven by the need for high quality, cost-efficiency, security, transparency and fact-based decision-making, companies are making themselves part of digital information ecosystems where they’re connected with customers, suppliers, authorities, banks and financial markets, all sharing data and information rapidly on an automated basis. This is leading to an explosion in data volumes and forcing participants to adapt their processes, controls, structures and corporate governance systems accordingly – the only way of generating, analysing and making proper use of the necessary data.

The audit re-imagined: collaboration platform

Aura, our global audit platform, is used by our nearly 100,000 auditors worldwide.

Our tool provides more efficient and secure information sharing at each stage of the audit.

PwC estimates that 45% of workforce tasks can be automated.

Although it’s in its infancy, the AI-enhanced audit is already being used to make the audit process better.

Being a new crucial platform for data collection, drones have become an indispensable business tool.

IoT is driving the digital transformation and will make it tangible.

Around 80% of the data generated by humans is unstructured, and isn’t used to its full potential.

Blockchain technology and smart contracts help CFOs streamline processes and enhance transparency.

Halo is PwC’s leading-edge technology for data extraction, auditing and visualisation.
