Paperless Content Partners

If the traditional paper-based audit file is no longer the right solution for your firm, paperless audit is the way forward.

Increasingly firms are embracing paperless assignment technology as a means to increase efficiency in their audit work. We have believed in this concept for a long time and work closely with highly respected partners who have developed truly paperless audit systems.

We believe these approaches offer firms a choice of platforms from which to use the Mercia audit methodology.

Our paperless content partners

  • In 2007 a Mercia version of the CCH Audit Automation software was developed, building on the platform of the well known ProAudit software.
