PwC's revolutionary data-auditing tool, Halo, has been awarded the prestigious International Accounting Bulletin's 'Audit Innovation of the Year'. PwC received the award 6th October 2016 in London at the International Accounting Bulletin Forum & Awards.
The award recognises organisations that, with a new initiative or innovation in audit, have made a major change in improving audit quality, efficiency or added value to clients. Judges consider cutting-edge thinking behind the innovation as well as improvements in efficiency, accuracy and reliability; client satisfaction; contribution to improved audit quality and reliability; and potential to keep the relevance and value of assurance services.
We are very proud to have received this award which recognises our leadership of the profession in providing high-quality services and recruiting the kind of talented and independent-minded people required to deliver these services.
These developments create major opportunities for us to continually meet the changing needs of our clients and other stakeholders and to reshape the assurance landscape by opening up the way to new forms of assurance and audit in the future.
