We start with the DigiCheck. And what comes next? First, our consultants figure out which of your business processes are currently well-supported by software solutions and which are not. The next step is to identify the “pain points” (processes that need improvement) and determine the target processes (the solutions that are needed).

When the auditor rings twice

by Herbert Breitler on 05/13/2019

Despite all the gains in efficiency, audits are still cost-intensive. In the course of the digital transformation, COSMO CONSULT has succeeded in taking auditing processes digital. Since doing so, the auditors from Wagemann + Partner have been able to access electronic documents, consolidated business figures and accounting transactions regardless of when or where or what device they use. Questions are answered by chat, telephone or video conference. Because no long-term on-the-spot audits are required, workload and travel costs have been reduced.
