Easy to Use, Convenient, & Practical

2021-06-17

Unlike other departments in our organization, we did not have to worry/adjust much to the current WFH working arrangements because we knew that we could easily continue our audit projects from the comforts of our home because we have up in our sleeves Highbond which we can easily access with our laptops , and even with our mobile phones.

Pros

The features that had been most impact for me as user were (1) the timesheet; (2) the automatic notifications/reminders to auditees (for requests/action items); and (3) the easily downloadable reports.

Cons

This is something very minor and not really a feature that I like least, but something that needs to be fixed in the timesheet, particularly in the time report. I just noticed when I was try getting to get a time report, the days in the month, as reflected in the calendar, did not reflect the actual day and date.

ACL provides tools to build analytics with ease

2021-06-01

I enjoy the use of the platform. Although there are a few issues with the product, I can see the product has improved in the past 10 years. There are always workaround to address the issues users encountered. Also the user community is always helpful and supportive.

Pros

I enjoy the use of ACL Robotics to automate audit tasks. Its development suite provide enough tools to aid auditors to create analytics to complete repetitive tasks.

Cons

In addition, it has issue with installing Oracle data connector.

HighBond - Results Module

2021-06-17

Pros

We are using HighBond in our daily Controls Governance, SoD Reporting and other Continuous Control Monitoring.

Cons

Least liked about HighBond results module is that, even the administrator can not extract or download all the attachment at once. Theres no mass download of submitted supports from the users.

ACL for GRC/Audit

2018-12-12

We wanted a tool to address our management of risks, related audits and an added benefit of managing our compliance program.

Pros

The focus is not on Sox or compliance management, but rather an integrated approach to risk and audits.

Cons

Some of the drawbacks are within the Sox/compliance module, primarily stemming from the fact that the tool is not designed specifically for that purpose.

So easy to use!

2018-12-11

Pros

Love it and would recommend to any audit team big or small.

Cons

We looked into other audit management software options and ACL seemed to be the easiest to implement "out of the box"and we haven't been disappointed.

Great product with forward facing technologies

2021-06-01

This solution is providing me an integrated solution to streamline our SOX Compliance Evaluation and Non-SOX projects with a lot of great workflow capabilities.

Pros

Customizable field setups ACL Analytics Included Potential for Robotics/Automation Integrated Workflows

Cons

- Does not have an elegant solution for selecting/downloading individual areas (start to finish control export, without exporting full sections of your file (i.e. walkthroughs for every process, not just the one you want with the accompanying testing workpapers and background details in 1 download) - Open text box for documenting has table limits not friendly for exporting or using its advanced features (team tries to push attaching excel workpaper attachments instead) - No auto-selection possibility with population files for business process controls

Tremendous Time Saver

2018-12-12

We are currently using ACL for everything from gathering of statistical information for senior management, compiling risk factors for audit selection to analyzing taxpayer information prior to performing an audit

Pros

The ability to script repetitive tasks. ACL allows the user to “code” the steps performed so that they can be repeated at a click of a button.

Cons

ACL has the ability to convert a pdf into a table, however the PDF needs to be a fairly simple one otherwise the data columns tend to jump around.

My HighBond implementation journey

2021-06-09

The most common business needs implemented so far are related to Internal Control (mainly with Results) or Internal Audit (standard way of Projects use).

Pros

Choose the best flow takes time and this brainstorming activity is more often time consuming and under estimated.

Cons

It could help clients to create better reporting without having ACL for Windows skills!

2021-06-01

We have been able to standardize our audits and are beginning to produce metrics and KPIs

Pros

The tool helped us standardize our audit process and have difficult conversations on how the audit department should function.

We can't attribute the audits to a section of our healthcare organization.

Highbond Review

2021-06-17

for me, Highbond is the best AMS for now. There are many features that we can use for our business.

Pros

Every feature in this software really helpful when it comes to managing our audit tasks.

Cons

there are certain things that I think this software needs to improve, which is when we wanna do data migration. maybe it will be much easier if we can bulk upload our data into Highbond.

Great tool for any size of audit shops

2021-06-03

Use it often, even for low lying fruit type of activities.

Pros

They can save a lot of audit hours and generates huge value to the organization.

Cons

It is an application and requires a set of skillsets to use the software effectively. The biggest challenge is talent. Training and promoting on using the software is key. Once you have a talented team, HighBond will soar like an eagle.

Overall satisfied with product quality and after sales support

Pros

Automated data analytics which is very time saving when analysing huge amount of data

Cons

Script is a bit hard to learn and use, it would be great the Help function can include some examples of script usage instead of just the syntax.

HighBond Review

2021-06-03

Our testing is much more efficient. We are working on implementing ERM. Down the line, I would like to implement IT functionality.

Pros

The testing reviews can happen in real-time, creating efficiencies.

Cons

Or, if not links to help docs, explanations about how to perform certain data functions, without searching forever, and maybe or maybe not, finding what you need.

ACL Robotics + HighBond Results

2021-06-01

Overall HighBond is a solution that will enable a full End-to-End view of your audit status.

Pros

Hybrid Audit automation allows organizations to run complex gathering and data modeling that enables full population testing without the overhead cost.

Cons

There are not that many sources of user stories outside of Galvanize communities. It may make it difficult to adopt as is not widely popular.

HighBond is a must have tool

2021-06-09

Pros

We have now automated our audit tests using galvanize, meaning our scripted tests which to us are our audit robots, automatically run the audit tests and just send the exceptions reports to email to the auditors or audit clients.

Cons

The software requires some level of scripting training.
