Houston – August 8, 2017 – Key Performance Initiatives, Inc. co-founder Scott Jones has joined the
Integration Partnership Program to help professionals start, develop and sustain their use of data analytics to conduct more efficient and effective audits.
Key Performance Initiatives provides advisory and consulting services in governance, risk management, compliance, internal audit, data analytics, quality and operations. As an Integration Partner, Jones will help audit professionals develop data analytics objectives and provide guidance in using CaseWare IDEA® for both financial and operational audits.
“Businesses are realizing the powerful potential of analyzed data,” said Jones. “Financial, manufacturing or operational data tells a story about what’s going on in the organization. IDEA can be used to look for trends, develop meaningful insights, and identify potential problems and areas for improvement – the key is just getting started, which is where I plan to add value as an Integration Partner.”
“During the course of his career, Scott Jones has used data analytics to its utmost capacity – always pushing the limits of what it can do beyond traditional financial audit work,” said Carolyn Newman, president, Audimation Services, Inc. “His holistic approach helps companies identify opportunities for efficiency and cost savings. Our clients will benefit from his extensive expertise and innovative approach to auditing through his participation in the Partnership.”
Jones has more than 40 years of leadership and management experience working in a variety of industries including quality management, global aerospace/defense engineering, manufacturing and others. Since 2010, Jones has used IDEA to improve governance, reduce risk and improve business processes.
Key Performance Initiatives will offer IDEA users training and assistance to implement data analytics including developing audit objectives, identifying areas for specific analysis, organizing data to achieve optimal results and developing scripts to automate repeatable processes.
