Audit innovation: Disclosure Analytics

Deloitte created a powerful research application called Disclosure Analytics that empowers auditors to perform fast, flexible searches for more than 2 million individual disclosures and accounting policies. This new solution—which includes filtering, comparison, and data visualization features—allows Deloitte Audit teams to get results in minutes rather than hours. In addition, the application’s consistency of data helps to further increase the quality of audit insights.

Impact: The Disclosure Analytics solution is designed to drive faster response times to client requests and audit research requirements.

Tax innovation: iPACS

Deloitte developed the Internet-based Process and Compliance System (iPACS) to simplify the tax filing process. The program facilitates and enhances operational decisions by reducing the time needed to deliver critical tax insights through an automated, customized program that helps with:

  • Data collection
  • Documentation
  • Partner allocations
  • Tiering

iPACS facilitates high-volume production of K-1 forms specifying each partner’s share tax liability. The ability to make K-1s available to investors and create customized reports is particularly significant for Deloitte and its clients.

Impact: Highly complex reports that normally take weeks or months are now possible in a fraction of the time with the Internet-based Process and Compliance System (iPACS).

Business innovation: Automated Document Review

Deloitte developed an automated document review platform using cognitive technologies–specifically, natural language processing—to read and automatically identify relevant information within a set of documents. It also includes machine learning to improve accuracy over time. This platform holds wide-ranging benefits, allowing our teams to process all types of unstructured information faster and with greater accuracy. One team was able to increase the scope of its contract review effort by multiple orders of magnitude, processing more than 150,000 documents using the application.

Impact: Deloitte’s Automated Document Review platform improves client service quality, helps surface valuable insights more efficiently, and enables professionals to spend more time on more nuanced problem solving activities.
