Not Just Another Checklist Product

There are many checklist products on the market that provide you with a laundry list of tasks you must perform, and information you need to gather, process, analyse, and validate to be compliant.

Audit Guru takes the process to the next level by automating the collection of much of the data you need, analysing it for you, and providing you with dynamic worksheets that are customised based on the results of the collected data.

Allows flexibility in how to work with your clients on performing compliance assessments. The MSP can perform all three roles or divide the roles logically with the staff at the client’s site responsible for compliance.
