    AuditBoard

    AuditBoard is a great platform for our organization because it allows real-time collaboration between the owners and auditors, plus it is very user-friendly. A couple of the features I love are the view that can be tailored by individual users and the dashboard that allows you to easily check the status of different projects.

    Pentana is great for monitoring PIs and risks. We find it less helpful for monitoring projects (with the Actions module); it isn't quite flexible enough for our needs, though the support team have been very helpful in adding custom fields for us.

    Pros

    AuditBoard

    • Allows line of business managers to review and report SOX control status/changes which automatically update the controls in the related narratives.
    • Shows status of work.
    • Exports system data to Excel to create many helpful reporting possibilities.
    • Organizes audit tasks and information.

    • Pentana is excellent for monitoring, recording and reporting on PIs. Very easy to use the PI module.
    • Pentana is excellent for monitoring risks at various levels (service, strategic etc.). Risks are displayed very clearly in a tree structure and the module is relatively easy to use.

    Cons

    AuditBoard

    • It would be nice if AuditBoard had more audit templates available for use on Ops Audit.
    • More timely updates for all users on their new features and release notes.
    • More CPE training and round tables for the users.

    • Pentana could improve the free Documents module that comes with Pentana Risk. At the moment documents have to be linked to an action in order to display query results (such as how many documents are due for review) - this can be confusing for users who don't understand why there is an action linked. There is also no easy way for users to see the documents that are assigned to them.
    • We would like to use the Actions module fully in order to monitor our corporate projects, but it a bit confusing for users and not very flexible when a project doesn't mirror Pentana's way of monitoring actions.

        Some modules are more user-friendly than others. It's sometimes not obvious where to click to update the fields (or even that field titles can be clicked on). We have written 'Howdys' to help users. There can also seem to be a lot of steps/clicks to updating risks and actions. The Reports module on Pentana classic is certainly not user-friendly, particularly the Report Layout and Charts modules - we were told these would be integrated into the web version but this hasn't happened yet.

        Alternatives Considered

        AuditBoard

        I remember there were a lot of sync issues when I used the internally developed software, but that's probably because a few people were working on the same project at the same time. I have not come across this issue in AuditBoard

        We selected Pentana because our neighbouring authorities are users and had spoken highly of the product and given us demonstrations; some of our staff were also familiar with Pentana when it was called Covalent. It seemed to be the best product on the market for monitoring risks, PIs and projects.

        Return on Investment

        AuditBoard

        • Hard to quantify. It was cheaper than the tool we had and we were able to get rid of standalone tool for surveys. overall, just better user experience for all.

        • Pentana Risk has allowed my team to focus on other areas of work whereas before we would be manually chasing for updates on PIs and risk. Pentana Risk does the chasing for us!
        • We are able to produce reports for audit purposes very easily, rather than sending spreadsheets which is what we used to do.
        • New managers can easily inherit risks, projects and PIs and see all of this on a custom portal, saving them time when they start.
