When a company implements and uses management systems, the audit of these systems becomes an essential part of the success of the business. Through audits, it is possible to determine at which points of the company there are faults or weaknesses, so that preventive and corrective measures can be adopted.
What is a Management System Audit?
Internal audits are essential in management systems. They are intimately linked with the necessary revisions by the Management. They provide the basis for the establishment of corrective and preventive actions. Also, internal audits carried out by personnel of the company itself are a preliminary step to prepare the certification or recertification audits that mark compliance with a standard.
Why Should You do a Management Audit?
If the company has an ERP system, having a complement or auditing software is essential. Through these tools, it will be possible to collect, group and evaluate evidence to determine if the functional definitions of the information systems comply with:
- Safeguard business assets
- Effectively carry out the purposes of the organization.
- Use resources efficiently.
In the case of the auditing software that we have developed for uniPoint, the module cost-effectively manages the audit processes. To do this, it works on detailed audit processes to our CPA. In this way, before any eventuality, the results are shown promptly, to apply the corrective measures quickly.
What is not audited, measured or checked, is not known and therefore cannot be improved. If the internal audit is well taken, it also allows glimpsing options for additional improvements in the processes and procedures of the company, which is a “certification audit” could go unnoticed. Thanks to the ERP's audit tools it is possible to detect the smallest details, which would go unnoticed if everything is done manually.
