Data quality rather than quantity
Like many internal audit groups, Align started out with Excel files and began using ACL at a time when it was cutting edge. “But we found that these tools were best at one-off analysis and that they targeted non-repeatable activities,” said Kim Phan, Senior Director, Investigations and Monitoring.
The MindBridge team was fully engaged in the implementation, explaining the process in a way that made sense to the internal audit team and its stakeholders. In addition, MindBridge customized the software to Align’s existing system. Using MindBridge, Align has been able to meet its goals of building a state of-the-art internal audit department. Align is confident that MindBridge will remain a valued partner. “MindBridge is constantly evolving and releasing new features,” Kim said. “It grows as a platform, and you go on that journey as well. It has become an important tool for us.”
