About ProSystem fx Knowledge Coach

ProSystem fx Knowledge Coach combines the risk-based, industry-specific content and guidance of ProSystem fx Knowledge Tools with a dynamic audit workflow engine, streamlining the audit planning process and helping users manage an audit from beginning to end.

Knowledge Coach is a planning tool, workpaper generator, audit workflow management tool and more. It walks the auditor through the planning stage of the audit to associate specific program steps with each risk – either drawn from a built-in program step library, or using steps defined by the auditor – and flags programs that can be dropped.

As the audit proceeds, the system ensures that risks are covered and steps are completed. The results in each workpaper are flowed automatically to all of the workpapers impacted. The system notifies users when workpapers have changed, need to be updated, or need to be re-reviewed. As users identify new risks or new levels of risk, they can open a Risk Pane from any workpaper to enter the new risk information and are prompted to choose or enter appropriate audit steps. Knowledge Coach automatically integrates the new material into the overall audit plan. All Knowledge Coach workpapers can be rolled forward for the following year, driving efficiency gains.
