Control Solutions Brings Audit Documents to Life

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - October 16, 2008) - Control Solutions International, the leading global risk and control solutions advisory firm, announces the availability of Intelligent Documents for Audit, powered by KCS. Based on the Generica Pro suite from KCS (Knowledge Control Systems), Intelligent Documents enables auditors and managers to conduct audits and implement action plans using everyday, familiar software, without jumping from one application window to another.

Users can create, link and manage risks, controls, observations, responses, action plans, policies and other information, all within the native applications in which they are written (including Microsoft® Office, Microsoft Outlook®, Lotus Notes®, and PDF files). The result is a dynamic audit management environment that reduces effort and costs, eliminates errors, and increases efficiency.

Using simple commands integrated into their existing toolbars, auditors select relevant key controls right from documents and e-mails and turn them into "managed information objects." Then with one click, they create audit plans as Intelligent Documents, with the selected key controls embedded as "living," actionable objects. Managers receive audit reports and action plans as Intelligent Documents, out of which they can assign and communicate responsibilities, priorities and timelines. From the Intelligent Documents, they can also connect to browser-based dashboards that provide personalized views of execution status and timelines of action plans, facilitate notification of responsible parties, and generate alerts on overdue tasks.

"This solution will have a significant impact on our clients' audit operations," said Justin Morrow, Partner for Marketing and Solution Management. "With the options of a custom installation on site or an on-demand service hosted by Control Solutions, Intelligent Documents provides an easier and more effective way to manage all critical audit components."
