GRF CPAs & Advisors (GRF) Partner, Ricardo Trujillo, CPA, CITP, CISA and Senior Manager, Tricia Katebini, CPA, MBA discussed the firm’s transition to Artificial Intelligence (AI) in a recent article for the Journal of Accountancy. Both auditors played a significant role in GRF’s due diligence and rollout of MindBridge, a cloud-based platform that analyzes transactions and assigns a risk percentage based on 28 control points within the software. Instead of sampling transactions for review during the annual audit, the platform ingests and analyzes every transaction.

In 6 Lessons from Audit Experts who Adopted AI Early, Mr. Trujillo and Ms. Katebini share strategies and practical advice for other practitioners considering the use of AI platforms. With four years under their belt, they suggest starting small with a phased approach as well as centralized documentation and a dedicated team committed to AI’s success. Finally, the pair recommends clear communication with clients about the true benefits of machine learning.

Mr. Trujillo and Ms. Katebini are presenting on the recent maturation of AI platforms at the upcoming Digital CPA conference on December 7.
