AuditSoftware.Net re-launches with a new look and feel

Based on a host of user feedback, we have decided to upgrade the Auditsoftware.Net site with a new look, improved navigation, and a more streamlined approach to content. We hope that the new approach will make it much easier to find what you are looking for on the site. If not, please EMAIL US if we can help you locate answers for your audit software questions.

Below is a quick summary of the website content:

Audit Software Library Articles and other content is organized into the following categories: Continuous Monitoring & Auditing, Detecting Fraud with Software, Improving Audits with Software, Project Management, Recovery Auditing with Software, Sarbanes-Oxley Technology, Using Excel in an Audit Capacity, and Videos

Vendor Directory Lists of vendors with links to their website for every type of audit software imaginable.

Bookstore - Auditors and financial professionals need all the help they can get these days and the AuditSoftware.Net bookstore has been designed to bring it to you at affordable prices. The categories are Buyer's Guide, Fraud Detection Software & Publications, Spreadsheet & Database Tools, and Test Sets & Automated Audit Scripts.

Training, Services, and Events Every month, AuditSoftware.Net will host a free webinar and various other training options (self study and group study). Learn more about the training, services, and events Audit Software Professionals can provide you here.

Discussion Area - One of the most important goals of AuditSoftware.Net is serving as a gathering place where members of our profession can communicate with each other-ask questions, share ideas, and trade experiences. We decided to add a blog to the site to make that communication easier. I'll be posting frequent tips, thoughts, and items for discussion and invite you to jump in. Check back often to see what's going on.
