USE CASE

Managing large client data sets

Background

For 10 years, haysmacintyre used the same technologies, predominately consisting of applications hosted on servers in their office. A few years ago, the firm's leadership committed to moving all applications into the cloud. The project was successfully completed at the start of 2020, immediately prior to UK-wide COVID-19 lockdowns.

Impact

Inflo has allowed the haysmacintyre team to continue to provide a high-quality audit service remotely. With the improvement of audit quality being haysmacintyre’s number one priority, Inflo has enabled automation of audit tasks to perform a more consistent approach in compliance with their methodology.

A real advantage we have found from using Inflo is where the client has large sets of data, which may be difficult to sift through in Excel.

With Inflo Ingest, we can obtain this data for us to review in a user-friendly format. We can quickly drill down into each trial balance code and find the reasons for fluctuations.
