Transforming the audit
Our commitment to transforming the audit using innovative solutions is continuously evolving the way we execute audit services. When we imagine the audit of the future, we see it as an even more valuable enabler of our vibrant capital markets—an audit that leverages advanced technology solutions and data analytics, embodies continuous innovation, applies agile auditing, is grounded by risk-based methodology and workflows, and showcases our most valuable asset—the skills and expertise of our professionals. By harnessing these capabilities, we are elevating quality, providing objective insights, and delivering a differentiated audit.

Delivering the audit of the future, today
When we imagine the audit of the future, we see it as a valuable enabler of our vibrant capital markets—we are focused on elevating quality, proving objective insights, and delivering a differentiated audit.
Grounded by our audit methodology and our professionals’ deep experience in specialized audit areas and industries, we apply technology-enabled solutions to pinpoint risks and focus our audit effort where it matters most and consistently deliver high quality.
A differentiated audit
Deloitte’s cutting-edge proprietary audit technologies define the very edge of audit innovation, bringing together artificial intelligence, automated workflow processes, and advanced analytics into the audit process.
Leveraging Deloitte’s suite of innovative solutions, we apply a powerful analytics lens that generate valuable insights, contributing to an objective, independent outside-in perspective.
Drones help make asset verification more efficient, informative, and accurate
We are constantly looking at ways that new emerging technologies can enhance audit quality, improve our audit processes, and enhance our clients’ audit experience. Drones have the ability to transform how we conduct inventory observations and asset inspections.
Remote sensing and advanced imagery can provide a fast and thorough way to gather data, enabling auditors to measure volumes of stock piles and containers, assess crop health or inventory conditions, inspect infrastructure, monitor construction, and verify assets. Post-flight software analysis can be used to digitally assess volume, height, weight, and other geometric characteristics of inventory. Leveraging drone technology—just another way we’re driving a smarter audit.
Investors today are looking for broader and deeper insights that can help them make smarter, more informed decisions. To meet this demand we are making significant investments to continuously enhance quality and transform how audits are delivered.
