    Teaming up with Suralink to unleash the power of the data-driven audit

    The accounting technology landscape has exploded over the last few years. Type audit software into Google and you get over 470m results!  

    On the positive, this has empowered accountants to be more efficient, effective and focus on delivering even more advisory value-add. However, this has also created challenges, with fragmented solutions and disrupted workflows. We even see a cottage industry of manual work-arounds and tools to connect the disparate solutions. 

    If, we as vendors, want to help the accounting industry, we need to consider how the pieces fit together. We believe Accounting firms shouldn’t be restricted in selecting the best technology for their business because of disjointed experiences. 

    At Validis, we have been working with a group of like-minded vendors to start to reduce the friction. We believe a connected ecosystem will save you time, money and provided a better employee and customer experience. 

     

    Validis and Suralink – Greater than the sum of its parts

    Innovation happens when data flows freely between systems. By combining Validis’ direct integrations to accounting software with Suralink’s secure client collaboration platform we’ve turbo-charged the efficiencies each platform delivers.  

    By automatically connecting financial data acquisition directly into your secure client management PBC portal audits are now based on a single source of truth, flowing through connected systems. It’s easy to imagine the improvements that this would bring to your clients user journey and your teams efficiency gains.  

     40% of the work involved in an average PBC request is now automated. That’s a significant time saving for auditors and clients.
