Use the Konfuzio platform to train our AI specifically for your applications. We support you with the ideal technical environment and the necessary know-how.

Data & AI in auditing

In auditing, there is a wide range of applications for the use of artificial intelligence. The focus is on the automation of process steps that can be made more efficient through AI. These are activities that involve a high level of manual effort and are gladly abandoned by humans. The evaluation of portfolios, auditing of annual financial statements or management reports, reading out (handwritten) documents or e-mails: processes that involve extensive manual steps and a high expenditure of time. 

But not only repetitive standard processes can be automated by AI in auditing. Topics that require further cognitive abilities, such as evaluating a contract and understanding the content, can also be easily implemented by self-learning systems. Konfuzio is ideally suited to increase net market time, so that more client contact and thus more business can be generated from existing working time.

Auditing is characterized by the cooperation with its clients. The fast and comprehensible exchange of information shapes the relationship. All channels of communication are possible, but information is not uniformly accessible and rarely fully digital.

Konfuzio structures the processing of the daily incoming mail by recognizing the type of documents received. As the actual content of the document is examined, it is possible to classify and extract more detailed individual data. For example, it automatically recognizes whether a received document is a fiduciary certificate or if the e-mail refers to ongoing legal proceedings.

The cooperation between clients and auditing has changed over time on the one hand due to the availability of new technologies and on the other hand with new perspectives, working methods and pricing models on both sides. From the company's point of view, there is a growing expectation not only to take on standard audit tasks, but also to enable detailed full audits. Previously non-auditable documents, such as vehicle registration documents for an inventory check, can now be processed.
