Move over, GAMx, there's a new player in town. Here are the details from our mole on the inside who made sure to point out that "nobody I know of will be participating" (lest this person be associated with such nerdiness):
Basically they are rolling out a new audit tool this year which is cloud based as part of the "Audit Transformation" program, which will replace GAMx. (Fun fact: GAMx is in the Smithsonian.)How it works:Gather your team and put your thinking caps on – it’s time to be collaborative and creative! Teams should include at least three (3) participants, and no larger than eight (8) participants, so if you have a large engagement team, split into multiple teams for this challenge. Here’s a brief description about each of the tools, and you can find more information on the Audit Transformation microsite:
- New audit tool: It’s a user-friendly, intuitive tool that is simple, scalable and flexible to enable our teams to perform the highest quality audits with less time in the tool and more time with the client.
- New research tool: It’s EY’s one-stop site for Accounting and Auditing technical content, enabling our professionals to find relevant EY and external technical thought leadership, guidance, standards and regulations.
- New analytics tools: This suite of tools will enhance our understanding of our client’s business, provide better audit analysis and translate into more insightful observations to our clients. For the analytics tools, your team can come up with a name for the suite or for each of the current tools:
- General LedgerPrizes:
Each member of the winning team will win their choice of an iPad or other tablet, or a smartphone. Entries must be submitted by 9 July 2014, and late entries will not be considered.
So, you have a few days over a holiday weekend to find two other dorks to play Name the Tool? Oh, man.
