Cloud Audit Network

CAN or Cloud Audit Network is a structured audit executed simultaneously at multi-locations across the country and delivered in a user-friendly manner at an impressive turn-around-time (36 hours). The contents of the report meet the diverse requirements of CEO, CFO, business heads of marketing, sales, CRM, logistics, HR & compliance, and Audit committee/board.

CAN works through a proprietary “Auditing App” specially designed for efficiently conducting branch/depot audits and audit of company owned/franchisee owned retail outlets, in a very short span of time and at low cost to clients.

The entire audit observations are recorded in real time on the “CAN” app by the auditors, which gets uploaded on the cloud server. Once the entire audit exercise is over, the audit report is automatically generated in “electronic form” and the concerned “Functional Heads” of the client company can access the e-audit reports on their mobile phones after downloading the “CAN” app.

The big picture is narrowed down graphically where a mere glance gives the health of key parameters like profitability, serviceability, inventory control, deviations on controls/governance and many more.

Why CAN?

It enables an organization to deliver effective services and satisfaction to customers, keeping in minds the benefit of all the stakeholders involved.
