Day to Day

A typical day consist of working on a test for our Audit partners that needs to be automated. Usually our Audit partners review a portion of transactions for a given test. So we come in to assist them in automating their testing procedures and give them the ability to test the entire population. We use software to tap into different database and pull in information and analyze the data points that we need to execute the test. It’s interesting because we get to see everything in the company.
