  • Deeper insights-Automating routine tasks creates space for higher-level thinking and the development of relevant insights.
  • Less bais-Automation can help reduce potential human bias.
  • Valuable visualizations-With data already ingested into analytics solutions, the audit team can prepare data visualization such as dashboards and reports more readily for clients.
