My CEO has asked me to look into something called MAPS. I am not sure if this is automated workpapers or audit programs.

Does anyone have any knowledge of this?

We are using Lotus Notes for our AWPs.

Here is a good article that discusses different types of audit tools/software.

Audit Guy, can you give me some details on how you use Lotus Notes? I am now in that environment and want to try to automate my process more.

As I sit here with paper everywhere on my desk.

Sure thing Kiwi...what exactly did you want to know? You can PM me if you want. I'll be in Florida until Tuesday, but I might be able to get back to you before then...

For those of you that use Lotus Notes, can you tell me the size of your insitution?

I used notes in a prior career life (resource benefits, outsourcing and consulting services), but my bank tells me that we are too small.

I have looked at some companies who offer AWP but they are very expensive. I do use Lotus Notes for email. Can someone tell me how I can incorporate workpapers into that?

I recently looked at Checkpoint from Thomson and thought it was a pretty good program. They have items you can e-mail out to have completed and they have all of the audit programs, just need to tailor it to your bank. They were relatively inexpensive for our size and they also had online CPE credited courses that you could use toward any certifications you may have, at an additional cost.

If you want my contact's info send me a pm.
