MHM's Audit Approach: Communication, Efficiency and Quality

MHM's audit approach is designed to foster communication, efficiency and quality during the engagement process. While this may sound simple, we believe this approach allows us to deliver peace-of-mind, value, and high-quality service to our clients.

You can expect the utmost professionalism from all members of our client service teams, who will provide your management group with ongoing communication, a comprehensive engagement plan and superior audit quality.

Communication

From the start of your audit to the delivery of the final report, we emphasize open communication and will provide regular progress updates. We are available to quickly resolve questions regarding the audit, expectations of us or any other developments.

To ensure open and effective communication, MHM:

  • Assigns at least one engagement shareholder to each audit — these senior executives are available as a valuable resource to your management or board of directors
  • Provides on-site access to key members of your engagement team
  • Conducts regular progress meetings during the engagement period
Efficiency

Audits sometimes have a reputation for being time consuming and a drain on an organization's resources. With MHM's cutting-edge tools and audit methodology, this simply isn't the case — we work smart.

Through our standardized processes and use of computer assisted audit techniques, we have created a constructive, efficient and beneficial audit process. Our highly sophisticated amelio software and uniquely tailored methodology allows our engagement teams to more precisely identify risk, and in turn, reduce what documentation we may request or how many questions will be asked of the client.

Three of the biggest changes to our methodology to improve efficiency include:

  • The Hub® client portal – We have developed a secure, client portal which allows us to share and store information easily and in a cost-effective manner with our clients.
  • amelio planning software – We use amelio to assist us in efficiently and effectively planning our engagements. This software assists us in tailoring our audit approach to your industry (manufacturing, retail and distribution; not-for-profit; architecture, engineering and construction, etc.), to your entity type (public or private) and the significant risks faced by your industry. By suppressing questions that are not applicable based on the answers to previous questions, amelio provides us with a very focused and tailored approach to performing your engagement.
  • Standardized workpapers – We have integrated our work programs, audit procedures and analytical procedures all onto standardized workpapers to streamline and simplify the process.
Quality

We focus on a process and end product that is timely, accurate, clear, relevant and thorough. MHM's audit approach leads to superior audit quality and more meaningful, impactful recommendations to help you improve your controls and your business.

MHM's dedication to quality is evident through our:

  • Close coordination and control by our client service team.
  • Hiring, retaining and training competent, capable team members.
  • Multiple levels of review including significant shareholder involvement.
  • Commitment to maintaining client confidentiality.
  • Creation of workpapers that are comprehensive, concise and that can be interpreted by any experienced auditor to arrive at the same conclusions.
  • Adherence to the Firm's core values.
