Background

Audit and compliance is an essential function for many government agencies to ensure prudent use of taxpayer money and to confirm high quality, compliant services are delivered by external providers.

Problem

A government agency faced tough problems with time consuming and costly audits, sometimes with incorrect or missing audit data. The audits were undertaken using manual forms and unreliable, insufficiently integrated technologies.

Work

The agency assembled a team to develop a mobile audit application to be used by auditors in the field to validate external provider work, progress, quality and compliance. The single page iPad app would replace manual processes, supersede existing technologies and integrate directly with the agency’s core systems. We acheived this using modern Agile software development approaches and current hybrid mobile technologies.

Outcome

  • Productivity, quality and cost improvements from reduced audit time and errors
  • Errors and data loss minimised due to validation and integration to core systems
  • Truly mobile data capture that replaced manual processes and unreliable technologies
  • Much needed new functionality, including location tracking, photo capture, annotation.

Equinox IT was proud to supply key development team members for this project and help deliver important benefits to the agency.
