SWAP Chooses AuditBoard to Streamline and Strengthen Internal Audit Processes

AuditBoard empowers agile auditing, process efficiency, and improved client collaboration for leading UK-based internal audit consultancy.

London, UK — May 18, 2022 —AuditBoard, the leading cloud-based platform transforming audit, risk, and compliance management, today announced that UK-based, not-for-profit SWAP Internal Audit Services has chosen AuditBoard to automate processes and improve execution, enabling them to deliver superior audit planning and risk assessment to their customers.

SWAP is the biggest local government internal audit partnership in England and Wales, dedicated to improving the efficiency and productivity of public sector organisations and helping them manage their risks. Finding that long, narrative-driven audit reports were no longer adequate, and inefficiencies were holding them back from being as agile as possible in their delivery, SWAP sought a solution to streamline internal processes and enable better communication with their clients.

With AuditBoard’s OpsAudit solution, SWAP is now able to perform continuous, rolling risk assessments and audit planning, all in one place. They also now have real-time dashboards they need to better communicate results — and help their customers take a proactive, strategic approach to mitigating risk.

“When it came time to streamline our internal audit processes, we wanted a partner, not just a solution,” said David Hill, CEO at SWAP. “Working alongside AuditBoard has allowed us to be far more agile and increase our efficiency to deliver the very best results for our customers. The engagement with AuditBoard has been first class, and as a team, we are excited about the future.”

“As our strong growth in the UK and Ireland continues, we are thrilled to be partnering with an industry-leading organisation like SWAP,” said Tom Reeson Price, Head of Sales for the UK and Ireland at AuditBoard. “We look forward to serving their needs well as we seek to drive strategic value for both SWAP and its customers alike.”
