Walnut Creek, Calif. and Hoboken, N.J. - January 22, 2018 – AuditFile, Inc. and John Wiley & Sons, Inc. (NYSE: JWa, JWb) today jointly announced an extension of the partnership initiated in 2016, which will expand the Wiley content available from within the AuditFile platform. AuditFile's award-winning Pro Plus audit automation software now features the full suite of updated 2018 Wiley Advantage Audit programs and planning documents for industry-specific audits, reviews and compilations.
AuditFile customers can also opt to add the Wiley Practitioner's Guide to GAAS 2018 and Wiley GAAP 2018 guide to give users easy access to these comprehensive digital resources from within their AuditFile accounts. The Wiley Practitioner’s Guide to GAAS 2018 is the most up-to-date, easy-to-use and complete guide that covers all SASs, SSAEs, SSARSs, PCAOB auditing standards, and interpretations. Wiley GAAP 2018: Interpretation and Application of Generally Accepted Accounting Principles is a thorough study and analysis of all US Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP).
“This deepened commitment is a result of the overwhelmingly positive response we’ve seen from both our existing customer base and the market as a whole,” said David Pugh, SVP Professional Learning, John Wiley & Sons. “There is strong demand for a cloud-based solution that combines and automates the engagement methodology. We will continue to build on our success to date in order to strengthen and expand our joint offering.”
This spring, the companies plan to launch programs compliant with IFRS and international audit standards within the AuditFile platform. Going forward, they plan to continue to expand the content available within AuditFile to automate additional programs and give users access to Wiley’s expansive digital resources for the accounting profession.
Along with the 2018 programs, AuditFile recently released several new features designed to enhance the user experience and more tightly integrate Wiley’s content into the AuditFile platform, including automation of the Wiley Disclosure Checklist and the ability to easily create new workpapers from the Wiley practice aids inside AuditFile using the platform’s integration with Microsoft Office Online.
