MindBridge [Platform] is used solely by the audit department in our company in order to create a more in-depth preliminary risk assessment analytic. The tool is currently only used for its general ledger analysis functionality, but the AR/AP modules are being explored for use as well. MindBridge [Platform] helps the engagement team assess the client's risk on a transactional level, which we use to corroborate the level of testing performed on various account balances and classes of transactions.
  • Simple web layout - easy to navigate throughout the tool
  • Dedicated customer success team - always willing to help solve questions and problems that come up
  • Provides many resources for success and scalability - ranges from workpaper documentation ideas to training resources
  • Some of the web drop-downs should be formatted differently - they cut-off when you reach the end of the page, and you can't begin typing a keyword to locate what you want (mostly in mapping account groupings)
  • Trends analysis doesn't allow a drill-down to the account level.
MindBridge [Platform] is an excellent tool to use to gain additional comfort over client's data. The key areas it helps with are analytical procedure risk and inherent risk, but depending on the data you have, it can also be able to assess control risk to a degree. It's a very malleable tool that can be made to fit your client, however, it does require upfront work (as the implementation of any new technology would). The tool may not be scalable for audit work that is very low-risk and requires little hour input in the first place as it may add more hours in the long-run than the normal audit would incur. Our team has used these low-risk audits in our implementation, however, to corroborate the results we get, which we felt has helped us achieve our successes with the tool.

As a CPA firm, we wanted to provide our attest clients with an audit that was more efficient and effective. We experimented with MindBridge Ai for a few months and were very pleased with the results. We made a two year purchase commitment and are using the tool on eight audits this corporate season.
  • Using the output from MB AI we have been able to reduce the inherent risk and analytical procedures risk assessments in our audits which have reduced our substantive testing sample sizes.
  • The output from MB AI allows us to focus on the medium risk and high risk transactions that were recorded in the general ledger during the year.
  • Our younger, more technologically advanced team members really enjoy working with MB AI.
  • Because the software is so robust, the learning curve is fairly lengthy, but MB's customer service has been fantastic.
MB AI is well suited for corporate audits of all sizes from Quickbooks environments to large ERP systems. Actually, the more data in a client's general ledger the better. First-time audits will benefit greatly from MB AI as the learning curve and digestion of data will be accelerated.

MindBridge AI Auditor supports our Audit department. Everyone in auditing uses the platform for risk assessment, audit sampling, and new audit client screening. The technology allows us to plan audits based on the actual risk in the general ledger. It pinpoints the area where we should focus our attention and allows us to tailor our strategy around those areas. In addition, it provides documentation for the risk assessment and overall audit plan. This, combined with our professional skepticism, helps us deliver a better audit based on the actual risk. It takes away the guessing game of random and haphazard sampling. With respect to new client screening, it helps us understand what the risk is and how to appropriately price the audit or determine whether we want to engage the client for auditing services.
  • Works well with QuickBooks Online. Easy to link programs for quick analysis.
  • Provides risk analysis that can be cross correlated with KPIs.
  • Aligns the risk analysis with audit assertions.
  • Easy to use, no huge learning curve.
  • Great support staff for guidance or troubleshooting.
  • Functional dashboard that is not just a picture; it has drill down capabilities.
  • Customizable KPIs
  • It needs to have a deliverable Risk Analysis report, something that can be exported to a PDF and delivered to clients.
  • Accounts receivable and payable analysis needs to be able to handle tiered customers and vendors.
  • Exporting to PDF should be a feature. Works great for Excel.
  • Needs forecasting capability in order for us to use for review engagements.
  • Needs the ability to compare client to industry ratings.
Anyone who is preparing audits should be using this software. This especially applies to auditors whose clients use cloud accounting platforms or where the general ledger transactions can be exported to Excel. If clients use old legacy accounting packages or process a lot of batch transactions, then this would require additional support from MindBridge and is more time consuming, but not impossible. I recommend starting with a few audits that are in the same industry so that you can work through the software and develop your new audit procedures.
My experience with customer support may different since I started using the application early on. I am also providing continuous recommendations for improvement or additional features. They have always been available when I needed them and they actually listen and value my opinion. They have implemented many of our recommendations and asked for our input on possible new features.

Currently, MindBridge Ai Auditor is being used by the audit department with the aim to improve audit quality by enabling audit teams to analyze and visualize clients' data in a more sophisticated manner, especially where there is a high volume of data.
  • Discovering and analysing patterns
  • Identifying anomalies
  • Extracting other useful information in data underlying the audit through analysis, modeling, and visualization
  • Improve ease of use through an increased number of courses on the academy
  • Potential to connect directly to clients' accounting system rather than having to obtain the data
  • Increased analysis functions and ways to display data patterns

MindBridge Ai Auditor is very useful in an audit where there is a high volume of data. It enables the team to analyze and visualize the data in a more sophisticated manner than would be possible by manual review and standard sampling techniques.

MindBridge Ai Auditor works best when the client is using a standard accounting software and the data is stored in the appropriate format used for MindBridge analysis. When the data is from a different type of system however, the MindBridge data team is able to assist us in formatting the data either through pointing in the direction of courses on the academy or, in more complex situations, formatting the data for us.

Ai Auditor is being implemented across a big 4 accounting firm by my small consultancy. It has helped to drastically reduce the amount of manual effort by staff in this organization.
  • Journal entry testing
  • Sampling
  • Viewing large data
  • Anomaly detection
  • All improvements are readily accepted by the team and assimilated into the product when they have a wide enough impact on other clients. Can't ask for more.
MindBridge is well suited for internal audit, and as a tool for businesses to monitor their financial data. MindBridge is not suitable for highly unstructured General Ledger data that cannot be formatted without expertise in data wrangling.
